Windgo is actively looking for commercialization partners for its technology. A few of the examples in this patent family are smart bandages, diapers and socks. Each of these items will be able to take relevant biological readings, communicate with a smart mobile device via IoT and provide a dynamic controlled response to the wearer's body as instructed through a wireless mobile application.
This new technology will allow for rapid development of devices that can monitor the body and report health status conditions to a remote device such as a mobile phone via wireless networks . The sensor readings can be logged and graphed over time to establish baseline trends and verify health status based on profile driven data analytics. The user or their care provider can establish parameters to determine out-of-bound or alert conditions which can be reported to a supervisory health management network engine. The health monitoring resources can be managed at extremely low-cost and energy by utilizing IoT cloud computing and machine learning artificial intelligence. These new patented devices will enable access through the user application interface (API) on their phone providing the ability to monitor and track trending data alerts over time. Emergency conditions can be automatically relayed to medical personnel without any user intervention. The alert information is determined based on a user's profile and trending data events that have been predetermined as abnormal and critical.
Smart diapers will allow health monitoring of bodily fluid and determination of content to report trending anomalous data to the parent or care provider. The Smart diaper will be able to identify liquid conductivity, ammonia content, sugars, acidity, and other sensory data utilizing "Lab on a Chip" technology.
The Windgo "Baby 1, 2, 3" Application will allow parents and caregivers the ability to instantly be alerted to the contents of the diaper and determine actions to proactively mitigate problems. Actions can be programmed such as absorption modes, diaper rash minimization, and scent compensation modes.
Smart bandages will allow the user to receive preprogrammed or adaptive therapeutic stimulus and medication directly from the bandage's smart response module.
"The wearables market is predicted to be a high growth part of the IoT revolution. Windgo feels that this new patent will allow new capabilities for wearable devices specifically in the areas where a device is intended to provide a beneficial therapy or function to the user's body," says VP of R&D, David Strumpf. "The controlled response medicant delivery system that we have developed utilizes smart materials that will allow medical therapy that can alert nurses to unsafe bacterial content or probability of bed sores in elderly patients."
Windgo is based in Columbia, MO.
