  • Patent number: 11328806
    Abstract: An apparatus tracks patient recovery following an orthopedic procedure. A statistical computing engine implements a predictive model of the patient's post-procedural state for the orthopedic procedure based on a database of patient demographic data, comorbidities, pre-procedural walking parameters, including steps taken, and the orthopedic procedure that the patient is undergoing. The pre-procedural walking parameters are populated from physical sensor data automatically collected from the patient. The predictive model creates a temporal trendline of post-procedural walking parameters, including steps taken, and a temporal trendline of post-procedural pain level. A processor then compares the patient's actual post-procedural state to the predictive model of the patient's post-procedural state. The post-procedural walking parameters are also obtained from the physical sensor.

  • Patent number: 11275439
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for predicting a state of a user (e.g., asleep or awake). In some embodiments, the location sharing system accesses historical activity data of the user and extracts historical sleep records from the historical activity data. The system clusters the historical sleep records into a plurality of clusters and extracts a sleep pattern from each one of the plurality of clusters. Then, when the location sharing system receives current activity data of the user, the system can predict whether the user is currently asleep based on the current activity of the user and at least one of the sleep patterns. Some embodiments additionally compute an estimated wake up time of the user. Some embodiments share the predicted physiological state of the user with the user's friends via the map GUI. Some embodiments additionally share the estimated wake up time of the user.

  • Patent number: 11266807
    Abstract: The present disclosure pertains to a system and method for determining whether a subject is likely to be disturbed by therapy levels of stimulation provided to the subject during sleep sessions. The present system is configured to automatically identify sensitive users using electroencephalogram (EEG) information from a reference sleep session with or without stimulation. For reference sleep sessions without stimulation, the alpha activity in detected deep sleep is used to predict whether the subject is likely to be disturbed by therapy levels of stimulation. For reference sleep sessions with stimulation, the acute increase in EEG delta (e.g., 0.5-4 Hz) power and/or an arousability index are used to predict whether the subject is likely to be disturbed by therapy levels of stimulation.

  • Patent number: 11265391
    Abstract: A patient uses a token with multiple actuators to request assistance from a healthcare provider. When the patient activates one of the token's actuators, a nearby mobile device receives a signal from the relevant actuator, selects a code depending on which actuator was activated, and sends the code along with location data and a patient identifier to a server. The server uses the identifier to access a patient record for the patient and retrieve insurance data. The server will use the code, the location data and the insurance data to select an appropriate healthcare provider for the patient. The system will transmit a communication to the selected healthcare provider with a phone number for the patient's mobile device so that the healthcare provider can contact the patient.
