  • Patent number: 5810747
    Abstract: An interactive intervention training system used for monitoring a patient suffering from neurological disorders of movement or a subject seeking to improve skill performance and assisting their training. A patient (or trainee) station is used in interactive training. The patient (or trainee) station includes a computer. A supervisor station is used by, for example, a medical or other professional. The patient (or trainee) station and the supervisor station can communicate with each other, for example, over the Internet or over a LAN. The patient (or trainee) station may be located remotely or locally with respect to the supervisor station. Sensors collect physiologic information and physical information from the patient or subject while the patient or subject is undergoing training. This information is provided to the supervisor station. It may be summarized and displayed to the patient/subject and/or the supervisor.

  • Patent number: 4571682
    Abstract: Structural systems and method are employed including a multiplicity of computers to control the acquisition and enhancement of skilled performance or behavior. Preprocessing computers (8 and 24) each accept signals from any corresponding one of a variety of physiological or other signal transducers either in close proximity to the computer or transmitted to the computer via a telemetering system. The preprocessing computer calculates a number of different measures of this signal and makes the results known to one or more other computers. These other or auxiliary computers control presentation of a display of the data for a human observer, and perform additional calculations which determine if the processed data is within a predetermined range. This range may be a function of time and/or other variables. A measure of the error between the allowed range and the processed data is computed within these auxiliary computers. These results may be used to alter the display.

  • Patent number: 4417569
    Abstract: An orthotic device attached to the external part of the body is adapted to provide support for the malfunctioning arm of a patient, said support offering a variety of stable arm positions in space in a manner essential for functional use of the forearm and hand. A plate attached to the body anchors an artificial ball and socket joint. The joint is actuated by a lockable rod which carries an adjustable elbow support or trough. Such structure provides the adequate range of motion and the needed accompanying stabilization of the arm in space, while said ball and socket joint replaces and/or augments the human shoulder joint. The device is worn by the patient inconspicuously under a garment, is useful either during mobility, while seated or when recumbent, and is applicable to human beings whose willful control of the shoulder joint is absent or decreased as the result of illness or injury.
