  • Publication number: 20210407688
    Abstract: A system including a range of motion module, a quality of sleep module, an overall module, and a control module. The range of motion module, subsequent to performing a procedure on a patient, determines a first range of motion score of the patient based on a signal generated by a sensor. The quality of sleep module, subsequent to performing the procedure on the patient, determines a first quality of sleep score or a first pain score based on the signal generated by the sensor. The overall module determines a combined score based on (i) the first range of motion score, and (ii) the first sleep score or the first pain score. The control module (i) determines whether an outcome of the procedure is positive based on the combined score, and (ii) stores the determined outcome and the combined score in a memory.

  • Patent number: 11200981
    Abstract: A system including a range of motion, quality of sleep, overall, and control modules. The range of motion module, prior to a procedure being performed on a patient, determines a first range of motion score of the patient based on a first signal generated by a sensor. The quality of sleep module, prior to the procedure being performed on the patient, determines a first quality of sleep score or a first pain score based on the first signal. The overall module determines a combined score based on the first range of motion score and the first quality of sleep score or the first pain score. The control module compares the combined score to a predetermined threshold and predicts an outcome of the procedure based on the comparison. The control module, based on the combined score, determines whether to perform the procedure, adjust the procedure or refrain from performing the procedure.

  • Publication number: 20210321883
    Abstract: A system comprising at least one implanted sensor device comprising one or more continuous sensors to detect a first modular set of biometrics of a subject. A system includes a computing device that receives the first modular set of biometrics over a period of time and receives a second modular set of biometrics for the subject. The computing device selectively serves a graphical user interface configured to present one or more of the first modular set and second modular set of biometrics and normalizes at least a portion of the first modular set and second modular set of biometrics over a period of time. The device generates a score indicative of a state of a biological system of the subject corresponding to a portion of biometrics of the first modular set and second modular set of biometrics and causes the score to be displayed via an electronic device.

An embodiment of the fabrication process forms a circuit pattern on a base substrate, where the circuit pattern includes circuit layouts for multiple die locations. Component stacks are mounted to the circuit layouts. Each stack has features and components to provide processing and wireless communication functionality for obtained sensor data. An enclosure structure is formed overlying the base substrate to individually cover and enclose each of the component stacks. Sensor elements are fabricated on another surface of the substrate such that each sensor element has electrodes coupled to conductive plug elements formed through the substrate, and such that each sensor element corresponds to one die location. Next, the substrate is separated into physically discrete sensor device components.
