|20120135842||TRANSLATORY MOTION STRENGTH TRAINING SYSTEM AND METHOD - A strength training apparatus adapted for conducting translatory motion against a counteracting resistance. The apparatus includes strength training devices wherein a carriage and corresponding guide means are provided for translating mass under the effect of gravity along a rectilinear or curvilinear path. Certain embodiments are configured for utilizing a selectable weight stack, loaded free weights or the user's body weight as a primary resistance that is independent of velocity. The apparatus enhances the results of strength training and exercise equipment for providing velocity-dependent resistance in addition to “static” resistance provided by the apparatus at constant velocity. The apparatus includes velocity-dependent resistance provided by eddy current resistance caused by the interaction of an electrically conductive structure encountering relative motion with a magnetic field. The electrically conductive structure is secured to a frame and magnetic field is provided by one or more permanent magnets secured to the carriage.||05-31-2012|
|20090099442||TELEMETRY METHOD AND APPARATUS USING MAGNETICALLY-DRIVEN MEMS RESONANT STRUCTURE - A telemetry method and apparatus using pressure sensing elements remotely located from associated pick-up, and processing units for the sensing and monitoring of pressure within an environment. This includes remote pressure sensing apparatus incorporating a magnetically-driven resonator being hermetically-sealed within an encapsulating shell or diaphragm and associated new method of sensing pressure. The resonant structure of the magnetically-driven resonator is suitable for measuring quantities convertible to changes in mechanical stress or mass. The resonant structure can be integrated into pressure sensors, adsorbed mass sensors, strain sensors, and the like. The apparatus and method provide information by utilizing, or listening for, the residence frequency of the oscillating resonator. The resonant structure listening frequencies of greatest interest are those at the mechanical structure's fundamental or harmonic resonant frequency. The apparatus is operable within a wide range of environments for remote one-time, random, periodic, or continuous/on-going monitoring of a particular fluid environment. Applications include biomedical applications such as measuring intraocular pressure, blood pressure, and intracranial pressure sensing.||04-16-2009|
