  • Publication number: 20190274601
    Abstract: A personal hand-held monitor (PHHM) comprising a signal acquisition device for acquiring signals which can be used to derive a measurement of a parameter related to the health of the user, wherein the signal acquisition device comprises a blood photosensor having one or more photo-emitters for transmitting light to a body part of a user, one or more photo-detectors for detecting light transmitted through or scattered by the body part and two or more optical cells, at least one of which contains an analyte to be detected or which mimics the absorption spectrum of the analyte to be detected, through which the light that has been or will be transmitted through or scattered by the body part passes before it reaches the or each photo-detector, wherein the processor of the PHHM is adapted to process the signals received from the or each photo-detector to calculate the difference in intensity of light which has passed through the or each analyte cell and light which has passed through the or each non-analyte cell an

  • Publication number: 20150374249
    Abstract: This disclosure provides a personal hand-held monitor (PHHM) which comprises a signal acquisition device for acquiring signals which can be used to derive a measurement of a subject's blood pressure (BP), the signal acquisition device being integrated with a personal hand-held computing device (PHHCD). The signal acquisition device comprises a blood flow occlusion means adapted to be pressed against one side only of a body part or to have one side only of a body part pressed against it, a means for measuring the pressure applied by or to the body part, and a means for detecting the flow of blood through the body part in contact with the blood flow occlusion means. The blood flow occlusion means comprises at least part of an external surface of the PHHM and wherein the pressure is sensed by means of a flexible and essentially incompressible gel in which is immersed a pressure sensor. The pressure sensor is adapted to provide electrical signals to the processor of the PHHCD.

  • Patent number: 7542345
    Abstract: There are many inventions described herein as well as many aspects and embodiments of those inventions, for example, multi-bit memory cell and circuitry and techniques for reading, writing and/or operating a multi-bit memory cell (and memory cell array having a plurality of such memory cells) having one or more electrically floating body transistors in which an electrical charge is stored in the body region of the electrically floating body transistor. The multi-bit memory cell stores more than one data bit (for example, two, three, four, five, six, etc.) and/or more than two data states (for example, three, four, five, six, etc. data or logic states. Notably, the memory cell array may comprise a portion of an integrated circuit device, for example, logic device (for example, a microprocessor) or a portion of a memory device (for example, a discrete memory).
