  • Publication number: 20120265477
    Abstract: A system for determining events of a helmet includes a helmet body, at least one detector configured with the helmet body for generating a signal in response to a detected metric and a processor for processing signals from the detector to identify detected metrics that pass a predetermined metric threshold. In particular, a system for determining helmet temperature includes a helmet body, at least one temperature sensor configured with the helmet body, for sensing temperature within the helmet, and a for processing signals from the temperature sensor to identify temperatures that exceed a predetermined temperature threshold.

  • Patent number: 8280681
    Abstract: A system of monitoring weight of a person includes a plurality of pressure sensors integrated with a shoe, for generating wireless signals responsive to weight of a person wearing the shoe when walking or running over ground. A processor processes the signals to determine an improper walking or running event, and a transmitter transmits a signal indicative of the improper walking or running event. A remote receiver receives the signal and generates an indication of the improper walking or running event.

  • Publication number: 20100076692
    Abstract: A method for monitoring fractional weight supported by one foot of a person, comprising the steps of adhering a movement monitor device underneath the foot such that the device is compressed when weight is applied to the foot; generating wireless signals representative of a target fractional weight of a total weight of the person; remotely receiving the wireless signals as information of the fractional weight. A method of monitoring weight of a person, comprising the steps of arranging one or more weight sensitive detectors underneath a foot of the person; processing signals from the detectors to determine weight; and wirelessly communicating the weight to a remote receiver.

  • Patent number: 7627451
    Abstract: The invention provides a smart sensor (10) in the form of an adhesive bandage (32). The sensor (12) sticks to people and objects and wirelessly communicates with remote receivers (24). Internal detectors (12) sense conditions associated with movement or the environment of the sensor. Typically, sensors of the invention communicate by an RF transmitter or transceiver (16). Groups of sensors may be combined within a common canister that imparts date and time information and “power on” when dispensed.

  • Patent number: 7353137
    Abstract: A shoe-based weight measuring system, comprising: a shoe; one or more weight sensitive detectors constructed and arranged with the shoe to sense weight of a person wearing the shoe and walking or standing; a processor for processing signals from the detectors to determine a weight of the person; a remote receiver; and a communications port for wirelessly communicating the weight to the remote receiver. An on demand weight system, comprising a weight detector coupled with a shoe for sensing weight of a person on the detector, a processor processing information from the detector for determining applied weight, a personal data display, and a communications port for wirelessly relaying the applied weight to the data display.
