  • Publication number: 20130185003
    Abstract: A system is provided for monitoring a force acting on a foot or a footwear. The system includes an assembly that is disposed proximate to a region of the foot or the footwear. The assembly includes a sensing device and a processor communicatively coupled to the sensing device. The sensing device is disposed on a flexible substrate or a stretchable substrate, where the sensing device conforms to the region of the foot or the footwear, and where the sensing device is used to measure data relating to the force acting on the foot or the footwear. The processor executes processor-executable instructions to analyze the data from the sensing device. The analysis can be used to provide an indication of the measured force.

  • Publication number: 20060212911
    Abstract: A system, method and apparatus for the wireless delivery of analog media from a media sink to a media source. The system, method and apparatus receives analog video and/or analog audio from the media source in respective native formats. The system, method and apparatus converts the received analog video and/or analog audio from respective native formats to a transmission format. The received analog video and/or analog audio is further processed for transmission over a wireless channel. The system, method and apparatus receives and processes the transmitted signal to produce recovered analog video and/or analog audio information. The recovered analog video and/or analog audio information is converted from the transmission format back to the respective native formats for delivery to the media sink. The system, method and apparatus provides a high data rate, low power wireless signal to the media sink at a low bit error rate.
