Patents by Inventor Wyatt Mohrman

Wyatt Mohrman has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Publication number: 20220296962
    Abstract: Training at the proper level of effort is important for athletes whose objective is to achieve the best results in the least time. In running, for example, pace is often monitored. However, pace alone does not reveal specific issues with regard to running form, efficiency, or technique, much less inform how training should be modified to improve performance or fitness. A sensing system and wearable sensor platform described herein provide real-time feedback to a user/wearer of his power expenditure during an activity. In one example, the system includes an inertial measurement unit (IMU) for acquiring multi-axis motion data at a first sampling rate, and an orientation sensor to acquire orientation data at a second sampling rate that is varied based on the multi-axis motion data.

  • Publication number: 20200405231
    Abstract: Systems and methods for determining the impact of air resistance on the power being produced by a body motion are disclosed. In one aspect, a method includes measuring positions and orientations of a portion of the body in motion. The method further includes measuring pressure experienced by the portion of the body in motion. The motion further includes calculating a static pressure based on the measured pressures and correlated position and orientation measurements. The method further includes calculating a maximum pressure and calculating an air induced power exerted on the body in motion.

  • Patent number: 10215975
    Abstract: Some embodiments of the invention include a system comprising a positioning device configured to a hold a sample and adjust a position of a sample in response to receiving a drift compensation signal; a first light source disposed to transilluminate the sample; a second light source disposed to epi-illuminate the sample; an optical system configured to receive light from the sample and generate a three-dimensional point spread function from the light from the sample; an image sensor disposed relative to the optical system that produces an image from the light collected from the sample via the optical system; and logic electrically coupled with the image detector and the positioning device, the logic configured to determine one or more drift compensation values from images imaged by the image detector, and configured to send one or more drift compensation signals to the positioning device.
