3854 results about "Thermometer" patented technology

A thermometer is a device that measures temperature or a temperature gradient. A thermometer has two important elements: (1) a temperature sensor (e.g. the bulb of a mercury-in-glass thermometer or the pyrometric sensor in an infrared thermometer) in which some change occurs with a change in temperature; and (2) some means of converting this change into a numerical value (e.g. the visible scale that is marked on a mercury-in-glass thermometer or the digital readout on an infrared model). Thermometers are widely used in technology and industry to monitor processes, in meteorology, in medicine, and in scientific research.

Method and apparatus including altimeter and accelerometers for determining work performed by an individual

Method and calculations determine an individual's, or several individuals' simultaneous rates of oxygen consumption, maximum rates of oxygen consumption, heart rates, calorie expenditures, and METS (multiples of metabolic resting rate) in order to determine the amounts of work that is performed by the individual's body. A heart monitor measures the heart rate, and an accelerometer measures the acceleration of the body along one or more axes. An altimeter measures change in altitude, a glucose monitor measures glucose in tissue and blood, and thermometers, thermistors, or thermocouples measure body temperature. Data including body fat and blood pressure measurements are stored locally and transferred to a processor for calculation of the rate of physiological energy expenditure. Certain cardiovascular parameters are mathematically determined. Comparison of each axis response to the individual's moment can be used to identify the type of activity performed and the information may be used to accurately calculate total energy expenditure for each physical activity. Energy expenditure may be calculated by assigning a separate proportionality coefficient to each axis and tabulating the resulting filtered dynamic acceleration over time, or by comparison with previously predetermined expenditures for each activity type. A comparison of total energy expenditure from the current activity is compared with expenditure from a previous activity, or with a baseline expenditure rate to assess the level of current expenditure. A measure of the individual's cardio-vascular health may be obtained by monitoring the heart's responses to various types of activity and to total energy expended.

Temperature measuring system, heating device using it and production method for semiconductor wafer, heat ray insulating translucent member, visible light reflection membner, exposure system-use reflection mirror and exposure system, and semiconductor device produced by using them and vetical heat treating device

Oppositely of a temperature measuring surface of an object-to-be-measured 16, a reflecting member 28 is disposed while being spaced by a reflection gap 35 from the temperature measuring surface. The reflecting member 28 is composed of a heat ray reflecting material capable of reflecting heat ray in a specific wavelength band, in a portion including a reflection surface 35a. A heat ray extraction pathway section 30 is disposed through the reflecting member 28 so that one end thereof faces the temperature measuring surface. Heat ray extracted through the heat ray extraction pathway section from the reflection gap is detected by a temperature detection section 34. The heat ray reflecting material is configured in a form of a stack comprising a plurality of element reflecting layers composed of a material having transparent properties to the heat ray, in which every adjacent two element reflecting layers are composed of a combination of materials having refractive indices which differ from each other by 1.1 or more. This makes the measurement be hardly affected by radiation ratio of the object-to-be-measured when temperature of the object-to-be-measured is measured by a radiation thermometer, enables to measure its temperature more correctly irrespective of the surface state thereof, and can simplify configuration of a measurement system.

Real Time Multispecialty Telehealth Interactive Patient Wellness Portal (IPWP)

A novel telehealth video conferencing system (process) that is designed to enable the patient user to have a real-time or near real-time 2 way tele-conference/consult including the transfer of patient specific biometric information with a health care provider team (one or more health care providers simultaneously, i.e. a team consisting of a pharmacist, physician, mental health provider, clinical lab, mental health provider, orthopedist, podiatrist, dentist, clinical specialist, etc. . . . ) located remotely from the telehealth digital/video patient user portal. The present invention, the IPWP is an interactive-digital health care provider network to patient portal designed to provide patients with the same level of quality care that they would expect to receive if they were physically in a multispecialty doctor or health care providers' (nurse practitioner, physician assistant, dentist, ophthalmologist, orthopedist, podiatrist, medical specialty clinic, hospital, etc. . . . ) office. However, the patients that utilize the IPWP will interact with their health care provider/s on a computer/notebook/smart device screen/monitor via existing secure digital web or cellular camera technology in a mobile or stationary, enclosed/private HIPP compliant environment at a retail pharmacy or a pharmacy supported location (workplace, educational facilities, retail stores, etc. . . . that have an in-house, adjacent or an electronic dispensing pharmacy). Current statistics demonstrate that 80% of primary care provider visits result in the health care provider writing a script for medication. Medication management is critical to safe, effective quality care and has been an issue of health care reforms Accountable Care Organization concept since 2009. In order for the patient to receive comparable care to what they would receive in a multispecialty provider/doctor's office with an onsite pharmacy, the IMP will combine the use of existing biometric sensor technologies (i.e. Strain Gauge Tech, IR Thermometer, etc.) in order for the system to take patient real time biometric information such as height, weight, blood pressure, pulse, EKG, blood glucose, body temperature, etc. . . . as well as identify the patient positively by both video capture and biometric scanning (fingerprint, iris scan, driver's license photo, etc. . . . ). It also has the capability to upload information from certain glucose readers in order for the physician to better assess a patient's blood sugar levels and may incorporate the use of magnified micro camera technology and lighting to look at a patient's microanatomy (ear canals, nasal passages, skin conditions, color and eye examination, etc. . . . ). In addition to the use of sensor technology the IPWP can incorporate the use of antimicrobial materials or technologies (copper ions, silver ions, UV light, HEPA filters, etc. . . . ) to reduce the communication of disease from patient to patient. The monitor, web camera, and other vital components will be designed to be permanently or temporarily (mobile system) located within a secure/private enclosure at a pharmacy or pharmacy supported location (private kiosk, room, booth, enclosure, space, etc. . . . ). All patient information and electronic forms will be transmitted via a secure encrypted web based digital or cellular portal to multiple providers as needed simultaneously for a seamless 3-way (or more) consultation/communication. The IPWP will be linked to a smartphone/computer/Internet/web app that will allow the patient to view availability and schedule appointments at their local pharmacies IPWP or alternatively on a walk-in, as needed basis. Lastly, the unit will be equipped with electronic payment technologies such as card (swipe) readers, etc. . . . to capture/collect payment from credit cards, PayPal and debit cards for all health care services provided including, but limited to co-pays, payments, prescriptions, lab test, etc. . . . .
In summary the ability of the patient portal system to provide real time, multiple simultaneously communicating health care providers with real time biometric information (including the onsite or tele pharmacist) is a novel process not limited to the single provider video/audio access currently patented. This new dimension to telehealth promises a telehealth experience that at a minimum matches the diagnostics ability and access of a multispecialty clinic or traditional hospital setting while exceeding the clinical/diagnostic ability of a single health care provider's office or clinic that is more accessible at a 50% reduced cost and resulting in better health outcomes.

Dual thermometer system

The invention provides a dual thermometer system for the measurement and display of temperature data taken at two separate locations within an oven. In one aspect, the invention provides an elongated probe connected with a flexible electronic cable. The probe houses two temperature sensors—one for sensing internal food temperature, one for sensing inside oven air temperature. The sensors are space apart within the probe such that the one sensor can be positioned substantially within a food item and the other sensor can positioned substantially outside of the food item and within the oven. Signals from the sensors are relayed from the probe and through the cable; external electronics may attach to the cable to acquire the signals and display associated temperatures. In another aspect, signals from temperature sensors are relayed from the probe and through the cable to a first wireless termination. The first wireless termination wirelessly relays signals from the probe to a second wireless termination coupled to module electronics, to acquire the wireless signals and to display associated temperatures. In operation, the probe is inserted into food within an operating oven, such that one of the sensors senses food temperature and such that the other of the sensors senses oven air temperature; the cable extends from the probe and through the door of the oven; the module electronics may be attached to a convenient location in the kitchen, usually near to the oven, to display temperatures from the probe.
