  • Publication number: 20160022219
    Abstract: A smartphone that includes a microprocessor, a battery operably coupled to the microprocessor, a single button operably coupled to the microprocessor, a communication subsystem that receives messages from and sends messages to wireless networks in accordance with Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA), a digital infrared sensor operably coupled to the microprocessor, the digital infrared sensor having ports that provide a digital signal representing a temperature, and a display device operably coupled to the microprocessor, wherein the microprocessor receives from the ports the digital signal that is representative of the temperature and the microprocessor generates a body core temperature from the digital signal that is representative of the temperature and the microprocessor also operably coupled to the display device displays the body core temperature.

  • Publication number: 20160003679
    Abstract: A non-touch thermometer to measure a temperature includes a microprocessor, a battery that is operably coupled to the microprocessor, a single button that is operably coupled to the microprocessor, a digital infrared sensor that is operably coupled to the microprocessor with no analog-to-digital converter operably coupled between the digital infrared sensor and the microprocessor, the digital infrared sensor having only digital readout ports, and a display device that is operably coupled to the microprocessor, wherein the microprocessor is operable to receive from the digital readout ports a digital signal that is representative of an infrared signal detected by the digital infrared sensor and the microprocessor is operable to determine the temperature from the digital signal that is representative of the infrared signal.

  • Publication number: 20160000334
    Abstract: A microprocessor is programmed to execute a spatial bandpass filter that is operable to apply spatial bandpass filtering to a plurality of images, a regional facial clusterial module that is operably coupled to the spatial bandpass filter and that applies spatial clustering to output of the spatial bandpass filter, a temporal bandpass filter that is operably coupled to the regional facial clusterial module and that is applied to output of the regional facial clusterial module, a temporal-variation identifier that is operably coupled to the temporal bandpass filter and that identifies a temporal variation of the output of the temporal bandpass filter and a vital-sign generator that is operably coupled to the temporal-variation identifier that generates a biological vital sign from the temporal variation.

  • Publication number: 20160003690
    Abstract: A non-touch thermometer that senses temperature from a digital infrared sensor is described. A digital signal representing a temperature without conversion from analog is transmitted from the digital infrared sensor received by a microprocessor and converted to body core temperature by the microprocessor.

  • Patent number: 8965090
    Abstract: A microprocessor is operably coupled to a camera from which patient vital signs are determined. A temporal variation of images from the camera is generated and amplified from which the patient vital sign, such as heart rate or respiratory rate, can be determined and displayed or stored.
