  • Patent number: 9183720
    Abstract: A system for improving medical device management for a patient is also provided. The system can include a portable wireless device having an ECU, memory and an interactive remote patient monitoring module (IRPMM) for at least one medical device. The IRPMM has a medical device data request module that is operable to request and receive medical device data input from the at least one medical device. The medical device data can be input by the patient, or in the alternative, be automatically received without input from the patient. The IRPMM also has a medical device data supply module receives medical device information from an outside third party and provides the medical device information to the patient.

  • Patent number: 9076315
    Abstract: A system that requests clinical data from a patient and then provides the clinical data wirelessly to be reviewed or analyzed with a certified medical algorithm and/or decision tree. The certified algorithm and/or decision tree can provide a summary of the data, indication of severity, “smart” decision or intervention protocol to a nurse, doctor, and the like. In addition, the system with the certified algorithm and/or decision tree can provide the summary of the data, indication of severity, “smart” decision or intervention protocol to the nurse, doctor, and the like within a short time frame, e.g. within 5 minutes from the data being provided by the patient. The certified decision and/or protocol can be agreed to or changed by an individual, e.g. a doctor, which can then be forwarded or sent back to the patient. If the patient doesn't respond to the certified decision within a short time frame, e.g. within 3 minutes from the data being provided to the patient, then a series of triggers can take place, e.g.

  • Publication number: 20120145783
    Abstract: The present invention provides systems and methods for powered video game playing cards, powered voter authentication cards, powered financial transaction cards, and methods for administering the use of each. The cards generally include a thin, flexible substrate and a battery disposed within the substrate. A dynamic token value generator and/or biometric sensor is disposed within the substrate and is powered by the battery. An electronic display is mounted on the substrate for displaying a token value generated by the dynamic token value generator. The token value is configured to be used in conjunction with a back-end token value secure identification system to provide access to secure electronic information or capabilities.

  • Patent number: 8181879
    Abstract: Apparatuses and methods for packaging electronically powered cards are provided for maintaining electronically powered cards in a deactivated state. In an embodiment, a housing having a face panel and two side panels attached to the face panel at opposite sides is configured to provide an offset distance between an activation device on the card and the housing so that the activation device is prevented from being activated by a force exerted on the housing. Annular or circular devices can also be provided for establishing an offset distance between activation devices on the card and planar substrates.

  • Patent number: 7967214
    Abstract: An electronic card comprises a thin, flexible substrate having electrical circuitry embedded therein. An activation device is disposed in the substrate and is configured to complete a circuit in response to a stimulus, such as light or sound. An output device is disposed in the substrate and is configured to produce an output, such as music or vibration, wherein the output device is activated upon the completion of the circuit by the activation device. A cavity is formed in an outer surface of the substrate and has electrical contacts at an inner portion thereof in electrical communication with the electrical circuitry. The cavity further comprises retaining means for replaceably retaining a battery in the cavity to enable the battery to provide power to the electrical circuitry, the activation device, and the output device. The retaining means allows a battery to be removed from the cavity and replaced with another battery.

  • Publication number: 20080085916
    Abstract: A method is provided for using ?2? subunit calcium channel modulators or other compounds that interact with the ?2? calcium channel subunit in combination with one or more compounds with smooth muscle modulatory effects to treat and/or alleviate the symptoms associated with painful and non-painful lower urinary tract disorders in normal and spinal cord injured patients. According to the present invention, ?2? subunit calcium channel modulators include GABA analogs (e.g. gabapentin and pregabalin), fused bicyclic or tricyclic amino acid analogs of gabapentin, and amino acid compounds. Compounds with smooth muscle modulatory effects include antimuscarinics, ?3 adrenergic agonists, spasmolytics, neurokinin receptor antagonists, bradykinin receptor antagonists, and nitric oxide donors.

  • Publication number: 20070262165
    Abstract: A packaging system for a consumable product held within a confined package. Plastic material is introduced within the confined packaging, preferably as a closure, seal or lining to the closed packaging. The plastic material has a surface that faces toward the consumable product within its packaging. The plastic material is fabricated from a composition that includes a plastic material and at least one scented material dissolved within that plastic material in a concentration in excess of its solubility at ambient temperature. The scented materials contained within the saturated plastic separates out of solution and migrates to the exposed surfaces of the plastic seal. The aroma volatiles are released from the plastic and fill the headspace of the packaging. These volatiles change the aromatic properties of the gases in the head space of the packaging.
