Patents by Inventor Jeffery Lee Bleich

Jeffery Lee Bleich has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 10674958
    Abstract: Described herein are systems and methods for favorably coordinating a timing relationship between a musculoskeletal activity cycle and a cardiac cycle of a user. A method may include repetitively detecting a signal that correlates to a blood volume in the user; determining an actual value of the signal that varies with the timing relationship; computing a trend of the actual value of the signal; and adjusting the movement guidance based on the trend of the actual value. A system may include a prompt device configured to provide recurrently a movement guidance to the user for guiding performance of the rhythmic musculoskeletal activity; a sensor configured to provide a signal that correlates to a blood volume in the user; and a processor configured to determine an actual value of the signal that varies with the timing relationship and to adjust the movement guidance based on the trend of the actual value.

  • Patent number: 10478708
    Abstract: The present invention is generally directed to methods, systems, and computer program products for coordinating musculoskeletal and cardiovascular hemodynamics, and more directly to stationary and non-stationary exercise equipment that include adjustable behaviors and are used with repetitive activities. The equipment is adjusted automatically in real-time to alter the work output, cadence, and/or timing of the user's physical activity in response to their monitored cardiovascular and musculoskeletal signals to achieve and maintain a targeted coordination of their heart and musculoskeletal pump cycle timing.

  • Patent number: 8961185
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed to enable a user to favorably coordinate the timing of musculoskeletal movement and skeletal muscle contraction and relaxation with the cardiac pumping cycle in order to improve perfusion of cardiac and peripheral skeletal muscle and other tissues, increase physiological efficiency, decrease myocardial stress, and enhance individual performance, health and safety during rhythmic physical activity. Additionally, systems and methods are disclosed to enable a user to avoid inadvertent unfavorable coordination of musculoskeletal movement and skeletal muscle contractions and relaxation cycles with the cardiac pumping cycle during physical activity.
