SANTA CRUZ, CA–(Marketwired – Mar 31, 2014) – Fullpower® today announced the acquisition of SleepTracker® intellectual property, including the SleepTracker patent portfolio that includes U.S. patents 7,306,567 (Jan 9, 2004) and 8,096,960 (Jan 9, 2004).

 

“The SleepTracker IP and patent portfolio further strengthens Fullpower’s wearable IP and patent portfolio,” said Philippe Kahn, founder and CEO of Fullpower. “Sleep cycle alarms are essential to wearable and the quantified self.”

 

The Fullpower patent portfolio includes more than 40 issued patents and more than 70 patents pending. Broad coverage for the MotionX® Technology Platform introduces a new and necessary approach for continuous activity and sleep monitoring and analysis, with applications spanning a variety of health and fitness, medical, and navigation applications. Fullpower’s ongoing innovation translates to continually broadening and deepening of the IP related to the MotionX-24/7 Plug & Play Ecosystem for Wearable.

 

Easy Wake Device, US 8,096,960, Priority date Jan 9, 2004 (PDF)
ABSTRACT: A device that monitors a user’s sleep cycles and operates to sound an alarm to awaken the user at an optimal point within a sleep cycle. Once an alarm time is set and the alarm is activated, the device begins to monitor a wearer’s sleep cycles by identifying the points in time at which the wearer’s moves his or her body limbs. As the alarm time is approached, the device can trigger the alarm earlier if the wearer is at an optimal point in the sleep cycle or, even retard the triggering of the alarm if the optimal point in the sleep cycle is expected to occur shortly. The device can be used to assist children in waking up to prevent bed wetting, or in a patient for obtaining light therapy.
