Allows Smartphones to Pick up Monitoring Signals from those in Distress
NEW YORK, Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lisa Pamintuan, President of New York College of Health Professions, announces the issuance of U.S. Patent #8,542,087 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office that allows monitoring specifically for the young and old, or any age group, and identifies certain sounds that indicate they are in need of help. The sound is immediately transmitted to a Smartphone that directly alerts a designated person or facility. This will provide an extra level of monitoring for either an infant or a person needing help or in distress, providing a cyber-guardian relationship to help safeguard those most vulnerable.
This patent is part of an extensive world class patent portfolio under the Intellectual Properties Agreements of New York College of Health Professions, complimenting the College's already established patents on security systems and broadening the concept of security to any environment.
"Recently the College was given a patent that described a Biometric Band worn by a human or animal, that could monitor, for security purposes, and signal back through a Smartphone to a security center if ever the wearer was attacked or killed. That patent has attracted interest from those in security monitoring, the military as well as private corporations," said President Pamintuan. "This patent has monitors for sounds that are passed to a Smartphone which immediately notifies a pre-determined security center or other designated assistance. Unlike many life alert systems that have to be manually operated, this system is available 24/7 and does not need to be activated by the person in trouble; it is a computer watch guard."
Pamintuan added, "This is an important addition to our security portfolios and will have immediate application in homes, hospitals and can automatically track those who need help. The idea that a person who is in need would have to perform an action, other than a normal biological reaction to call for help, will be a thing of the past."
Spector, a serial entrepreneur, has opened up several billion dollar industries in the past. Bristol-Myers Squibb set up a separate division for his patents and Spector has worked with hundreds of companies on projects from the first known patents in Location Based Advertising (the cornerstone of Poynt, a leading computer app), to smart credit cards, internet radio streaming, medical technologies and hundreds of other consumer products.
His first company was ARC Industries, set up for his patents, which included the first Hydraulic Exerciser later known as the MuscleWorker and the Bruce Jenner Exerciser. His partner on that venture was Victor Frenkil, Chairman and Founder of Baltimore Contractors. In his twenties Spector also did special assignments for Baltimore Contractors, the company that built Baltimore Washington International Airport, part of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and the subway system of Baltimore, as well as many other projects.
Partnering later with his cousin Sam Rubin, Spector used the earnings of his cousin's horse, John Henry, the richest horse in racing to parlay some of the winnings into a fragrance empire in the 1980's.
Spector, Chairman of New York College of Health Professions, has recently announced MOU's with Wake Forest Innovations, the commercialization enterprise of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, and New York Medical College, Touro University System.
New York College is now talking to major players about expanding and monetizing its world class intellectual property portfolio.
