Wearable Wireless Electronic Patient Data Communications and Physiological Monitoring Device

Described are patient data communication devices that may be used as wearable patient monitors. The devices are adapted to accept essentially any type of data from essentially any data source, and are reconfigurable, such that each device can determine which data inputs and outputs should be active, and can reconfigure itself based on new configuration instructions. The devices include wireless transceiver units that allow them to form networks, and particularly mesh networks, with other devices. In a mesh network, any one of the devices may serve as a data source, a data forwarder, or a data sink, and the processor of each device may determine whether data should be outputted, displayed, or processed on the local device or on a remote device in the network. Data from other devices in a mesh network may be accepted selectively, depending on the number of hops between the sending and receiving devices.

Medical devices for the detection, prevention and/or treatment of neurological disorders, and methods related thereto

Disclosed are devices and methods for detecting, preventing, and/or treating neurological disorders. These devices and methods utilize electrical stimulation, and comprise a unique concentric ring electrode component. The disclosed methods involve the positioning of multiple electrodes on the scalp of a mammal; monitoring the mammal's brain electrical patterns to identify the onset of a neurological event; identifying the location of the brain electrical patterns indicative of neurological event; and applying transcutaneous or transcranial electrical stimulation to the location of the neurological event to beneficially modify brain electrical patterns. The disclosed methods may be useful in the detection, prevention, and/or treatment of a variety of indications, such as epilepsy, Parkinson's Disease, Huntington's disease, Alzheimer's disease, depression, bipolar disorder, phobia, schizophrenia, multiple personality disorder, migraine or headache, concussion, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, eating disorder, substance abuse, and anxiety. The disclosed methods may also be used in combination with other peripheral stimulation techniques.

Dual-mode patient monitor

A portable patient monitor has an integrated mode in which it operates as a plug-in module for a multiparameter patient monitoring system (MPMS). The patient monitor also has a portable mode in which it operates separately from the MPMS as a battery-powered handheld or standalone instrument. The patient monitor has a sensor port that receives a signal indicative of physiological parameters as input to an internal processor. The patient monitor processes this sensor signal to derive patient measurements. In the portable mode, this information is provided on its display. In the integrated mode, the patient monitor provides patient measurements to the MPMS to be displayed on a MPMS monitor.

Microchip reservoir devices using wireless transmission of power and data

Devices, systems, and methods are provided for wirelessly powering and / or communicating with microchip devices used for the controlled exposure and release of reservoir contents, such as drugs, reagents, and sensors. In one embodiment, the system includes (1) a microchip device comprising a substrate having a plurality of reservoirs containing reservoir contents for release or exposure; and (2) a rechargeable or on-demand power source comprising a local component which can wirelessly receive power from a remote transmitter wherein the received power can be used, directly or following transduction, to activate said release or exposure of the reservoir contents. In another embodiment, the system comprises (1) a microchip device comprising a substrate a plurality of reservoirs containing reservoir contents for release or exposure; and (2) a telemetry system for the wireless transfer of data between the microchip device and a remote controller.

Unitized electrode with three-dimensional multi-site, multi-modal capabilities for detection and control of brain state changes

An electrode with three-dimensional capabilities for detection and control of brain state changes of a subject. The electrode includes a disk portion having an upper surface and a lower surface, and a shaft portion secured to and extending perpendicularly outwardly from the lower surface of the disk portion; the shaft portion having an outer surface. The disk portion and shaft portion may include one or more recording or stimulating contact surfaces structured to operatively interact with the brain of a subject. Insulating material isolates each of the recording or stimulating contact surfaces from each other. At least one conductor operatively and separately connect each of the recording or stimulating contact surfaces in communication with external apparatus. The disk portion and shaft portion are structured relative to each other to operatively provide support and anchoring for each other while providing three-dimensional capabilities for detection and control of brain state changes of a subject. Modified embodiments include insertible/retractable electrode wires, both contained in channels and sheathed in axially displaceable cannulae; activating mechanisms for inserting/retracting the electrode wires and/or cannulae; and multiple shaft portions.
