Data is wirelessly transmitted from the portable device 101 a by the communications unit 110 to a paging network receiving/transmitting tower 202. Packet-based paging protocols such as mobitex and reflex are well known in the art and are utilized in the preferred embodiments. Embodiments utilizing an alternative communications unit 110 such as mobile telephone communications utilize such protocols as GPRS, TDMA, or CDMA.
  • [0044]
    The data is transmitted to the paging network terminal 204, which directs the data to a paging network gateway 206 with an information network, such as the Internet 300 a. The paging network gateway 206 forwards the data to the Internet 300 a, for delivery to the web server 302 a. An analogous process occurs in the reverse when statistical data is transmitted from the web server 302 a to the communications unit 110 of the portable device 101 a.
  • [0045]
    The web server 302 a processes sensor and/or measurement data, or data related thereto (which is still referred to as sensor and/or measurement data) into statistical data. The server 302 a utilizes sensor data or measurements associated with a specific physiological characteristic to calculate statistical data such an average value over time intervals, such as daily, weekly, or monthly intervals, and/or to calculate a variance, standard deviation, least square, or a distribution, for example. The remote computer 302 or web server 302 a may also compute measurements from statistical data, etc. Such statistical data is transmitted from the server 302 a through signal path 200 to the communications unit 110 of the portable device 101 a. The electronic controller 102 directs storage and/or display of the statistical data.
  • [0046]

  • [0047]
    The display device 108 is a liquid crystal device (LCD). However, any suitable display device may be used. FIGS. 6 a, 6 b, and 6 c illustrate statistical data displayed on the display device 108. Measurement data, statistical data, and sensor data can be displayed in any manner that effectuates a communication of the associated information to the monitored person. FIG. 6 d is an example of statistical data displayed graphically. It is contemplated that statistical data, measurement data and sensor data can be graphically displayed alone or in combination and in any manner that effectuates communication of the associated information to the monitored person. Preferred graphical displays specifically include but are not limited to graphs, charts, and tables, such as histograms and other graphical communications of data.
  • [0048]
    Server 302 a (FIG. 5) preferably includes automatic message alert functionality alerting the monitored person and authorized parties when sensor, measurement or statistical data is more than, less than, or equal to or is outside of a given range. The server 302 a is programmed with at least one function, each function being associated with a specific physiological characteristic of a “generic” person, normative in relevant physiological respects. A value or range of values is produced when the function is considered in light of at least one parameter each associated with a specific physical trait of the particular monitored person, such as the person's age or weight. Such parameters are considered in order to tailor and/or personalize the function in a manner so as to yield a custom value or value range representative of medically satisfactory conditions for the associated physiological characteristic of the particular monitored person.
  • [0049]
    Once this value or value range has been ascertained, it is compared against either sensor data or statistical data. The choice of sensor, measured or statistical data more than, less than, equal to or is dependent on whether the particular function is associated with instantaneous thresholds or statistical thresholds. If the sensor measurement or statistical data is outside the value range, then the server transmits an automatic message alert indicative of an emergency medical condition associated with the specific monitored person whose data outside the value range.
  • [0050]
    FIG. 7 depicts a system 350 that includes portable devices 100 a and authorized party devices 400 that communicate with a server 302 a. Automatic message alerts are sent to the communications devices 400 of specified authorized parties, such as health care professionals and family members, as well as to the concerned portable device 100 a. In this embodiment, the authorized party devices 400 may comprise a pager, telephone, mobile telephone, PC, or laptop computer. Both the portable device 100 a and authorized party devices 400 are programmed to receive transmitted automated message alerts. In the preferred embodiments, there is any number and combination of authorized party devices 400. Methods of interconnectivity, signal paths 500, and data and protocol conversions between authorized devices 400 and the Internet 300 are varied and well known in the art, and often particular to the type of authorized party device 400 (i.e. mobile telephone, desktop computer, etc.). In the preferred embodiment, an automated message alert may be also initiated manually by the use of a touch tone telephone 600. Methods of interconnectivity, signal routing, and data and protocol conversion between the telephone 600, the telephone network 700, the Internet 300 a and a communications network 300 are known in the art. Also, in the preferred embodiment, authorized party devices 400 also have access to the server 302 a to view at least one of sensor data and statistical data. Access is subject to security measures such as password protection, and methods of security are well known in the art.
