medical communication device

– Illus­tra­tive image from U.S. Patent No. 7,138,902

Today we high­light a very inter­est­ing 2006 patent assigned to Phillips and Accen­ture — who have been col­lab­o­rat­ing  to devel­op soft­ware for EEG-based oper­a­tion of home appli­ances to aid patients suf­fer­ing from neu­ro­gen­er­a­tive dis­eases such as ALS (amy­otroph­ic lat­er­al scle­ro­sis).

U.S. Patent No. 7,138,902: Per­son­al med­ical com­mu­ni­ca­tion device and sys­tem

  • Assignee(s): Phillips, Accen­ture
  • Inventor(s): Ray­mond J. Menard
  • Tech­nol­o­gy Cat­e­go­ry: EEG
  • Issue Date: Novem­ber 21, 2006

SharpBrains’ Take:

The ‘902 patent relates to tech­niques and sys­tems for per­son­al med­ical devices, evi­denc­ing the trend (as described in Back­ground of the Spec­i­fi­ca­tion) of the expan­sion of med­ical ser­vice deliv­ery from strict­ly with­in med­ical cen­ters into the homes and/or mobile lifestyles of patients.
