Patent 11273081 - Wearable sensor enclosure > Claims

  • 1. A wearable sensor enclosure comprising: a proximal component configured to be attached to an item or a wearer; anda distal component configured to be attached to the proximal component, the distal component having a perimeter in a first plane and an outer lip running along the perimeter, the proximal component having a surface within the perimeter and coupled to the outer lip at a transition section defining a concave curve shape, the surface protruding away from the first plane to form a cavity.
    • 2. The wearable sensor enclosure of claim 1, wherein the surface further comprises one or more of (i) a button area configured to activate an electronic switch disposed within the wearable sensor enclosure or (ii) a light source configured to emit light through the surface.
    • 3. The wearable sensor enclosure of claim 1, wherein the concave curve shape comprises a radius of 1-6 mm.
    • 4. The wearable sensor enclosure of claim 1, wherein the wearable sensor enclosure is at least partially made from a flexible material and the proximal component comprises an adhesive or attachment device for attaching to a diaper.
    • 5. The wearable sensor enclosure of claim 1, wherein the proximal component comprises an opening, the wearable sensor enclosure further comprising an interior sensor enclosure located between the distal component and the proximal component, wherein the interior sensor enclosure comprises one or more of: (i) a light source configured to emit light through the opening, or (ii) a light sensor configured to receive light through the opening.
    • 6. The wearable sensor enclosure of claim 1, further comprising one or more of: (i) an accelerometer, (ii) a gyroscope, (iii) a light source, (iii) a light detector, (iv) a radio, (v) a power source, (vi) a temperature sensor, (vii) a moisture sensor, and (viii) a sound emitting device.
  • 7. A wearable sensor enclosure comprising: a proximal component configured to be attached to an item or a wearer; anda distal component configured to be attached to the proximal component to form the wearable sensor enclosure, the distal component having a perimeter in a first plane and an outer lip running along the perimeter, the proximal component further having a surface within the perimeter and coupled to the outer lip at a transition section defining a concave curve shape, the surface protruding away from the first plane to form a cavity:wherein the perimeter has a first end and a second end, the first end opposite the second end; wherein the first end comprises a first width and wherein the outer lip at the second end defines an alignment feature having a second width that is less than the first width.
