In an example method, a mobile device receives motion data from several sensors during a time period, in which one or more sensors are worn by a user. The mobile device determines, using the motion data an impact experienced by the user during the duration of time and then determines one or more of traits of the user. The device calculates, based upon the motion data as well as the particular features of the user the likelihood that the user needs assistance following the impact and sends one or more notifications based on the likelihood.

Motion sensors are device which measures the amount of motion felt by an object (e.g. the speed or speed of the object with respect to time, or the direction or change in direction of the object relative to time, etc.). In certain situations that include mobile devices (e.g. an mobile phone, a smartphone phone, a tablet computer, wearable electronic device such as smart watches.) can contain at least one motion sensor to measure the amount of motion that is that the device experiences over a period oftime. The motion sensor is able to determine the movement of the user’s mobile device when it is worn.

What is a patent?

A patent is granted by the government to protect an invention, a patent provides the inventor with the exclusive right to use, create to sell, and market the invention? Society gains when a innovative technology is introduced to the market. The benefits may be directly, in that it can allow individuals to achieve previously unattainable things, or indirectly by the economic benefits (business expansion and job creation) that innovation provides.

Patent protection is sought by many university researchers and drug companies for research and development. Patents can be granted for a product, process, or method of creating new materials. In order to be granted protection under a patent the invention must be useful, new, and not obvious to others within the same field.

Patents recognize and reward inventors for their commercially successful inventions. They serve as a motivator for inventors to create. Patents allow entrepreneurs and inventors to know that there’s an excellent chance that they will get a profit on their time, effort and money spent on technology development. They can earn a living by their work.

Businesses that have the capacity to:

Secure your products and services

Your products are more noticeable as well as valuable and appealing to the market.

Differentiate your business and products from the rest;

Access business and technical expertise and data;

Avoid using content from third parties or risk losing valuable information as well as creative outputs and other outputs.

Patents transform inventors’ information into a tradeable asset that opens up new possibilities to create jobs and boost expansion of businesses through licensing or joint ventures.

Investors involved in the development and commercialization of technology will find small companies with patent protection appealing.

Patents can result in innovative ideas and inventions. This information can encourage the development of new ideas and may be eligible for patent protection.

Patents can be used to stop untrustworthy third parties from making money through the work of inventions.

Patent-protected technology revenues that are commercially profitable could be used to fund technological research and development (R&D) that will increase the odds of developing better technology in the near future.

Intellectual property ownership can be used to convince investors and lenders that there are legitimate opportunities to commercialize your product. A powerful patent can lead to numerous financing options. Patents as well as other IP assets are able to be used as collateral or as security for debt financing.

Are you looking for similar patents? Here are the steps to follow:

1. Create a list of terms to describe your invention, based on its purpose, composition, and usage.

Write down a concise detailed explanation of your invention. Avoid using generic terms like “device,” “process,” and “system.” Look for synonyms to the terms you chose initially. Also, keep track of important technical terms, as well as key words.

Utilize the following questions to help you find key words or concepts.

  • What is the purpose of the invention Is it a utilitarian device or an ornamental design?
  • Invention is a method to make something or carry out an action? Is it an item?
  • What is the purpose and composition of the invention? What is the physical structure of the invention?
  • What is the purpose of this invention?
  • What are technical terms and phrases that define the nature of an invention? A technical dictionary can help you identify the correct terms.

2. Use these terms to search for relevant Cooperative Patent Classifications on the Classification Text Search Tool. To determine the best classification to your invention, look through the classification’s class Schemes (class schedules). If you do not get results using the Classification Text Search, you may want to consider replacing the words for describing your invention with synonyms.

3. Review 3. Go over the CPC Classification Definition to verify the accuracy of the CPC classification that you have located. The hyperlink to a CPC classification definition will be provided in the event that the title of the classification contains a blue box with “D” on its left. CPC classification definitions can be used to determine the scope of the classification and therefore you’re certain to pick the most pertinent. In addition, these definitions can include some tips for searching and other information that may be useful to further study.

4. The Patents Full-Text Database and the Image Database allow you to retrieve patent documents that include the CPC classification. You can review and select the relevant patent publications by looking first at abstract and the drawings that are representative.

5. This list of patent publications is the best to look at for any similarity to your idea. Be sure to read the specification and claims. You may find additional patents through contacting the patent examiner and the applicant.

6. You can find published patent applications that meet the CPC classification you chose in Step 3. It is possible to use the same method of search in Step 4 to narrow your search results to the relevant patent applications by looking at the abstract and illustrations on every page. Next, examine all published patent applications carefully with particular attention paid to the claims as well as other drawings.

7. Locate additional US patent publications using keyword searching in PatFT or AppFT databases, searching for classification of non-U.S. patents per below, and searching for non-patent patent disclosures in the literature of inventions using internet search engines. Here are some examples:

  • Add keywords to your search. Keyword searches may turn up documents that are not well-categorized or have missed classifications during Step 2. For example, US patent examiners often supplement their classification searches with keyword searches. Think about the use of technical engineering terminology rather than everyday words.
  • Search for foreign patents using the CPC classification. Then, re-run the search using international patent office search engines such as Espacenet, the European Patent Office’s worldwide patent publication database of over 130 million patent publications. Other national databases include:
  • Search non-patent literature. Inventions can be made public in many non-patent publications. It is recommended that you search journals, books, websites, technical catalogs, conference proceedings, and other print and electronic publications.

To review your search, you can hire a registered patent attorney to assist. A preliminary search will help one better prepare to talk about their invention and other related inventions with a professional patent attorney. In addition, the attorney will not spend too much time or money on patenting basics.
