Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0001]
    1. Field of the Invention
  • [0002]
    The present invention relates to a shoe, and more particularly to a shoe having a physical measuring device to measure weight, fat ratio, rate or movement, caloric use information, or other physical information of users.
  • [0003]
    2. Description of the Prior Art
  • [0004]
    Typical shoes are provided for being worn by users, but may not be used to detect or to provide weight, fat ratio, rate or movement, caloric use information, or other physical information of users.
  • [0005]
    Some of typical tools may comprise various detecting devices, to measure or detect forces, torques, etc. For example, U.S. Pat. No. 4,125,016 to Lehoczky et al. discloses a typical battery operated torque wrench having digital display, and comprising one or more variable resistors to detect torques generated by or acted by the torque wrench. However, such detecting devices may not be introduced into shoes to detect or provide physical information of users.
  • [0006]
    U.S. Pat. No. 4,864,903 to Bickford et al. discloses another typical apparatus of determining torque, presenting digital torque readout and automatic cycling and termination of wrench operation with pressure transducers. However, similarly, such detecting devices may not be introduced into shoes to detect or provide physical information of users.
  • [0007]
    U.S. Pat. No. 6,784,799 to Hsien discloses a further typical tension meter and wrench combination. However, similarly, such tension meters also may not be introduced into shoes to detect or provide physical information of users.
  • [0008]
    The present invention has arisen to mitigate and/or obviate the afore-described disadvantages of the conventional shoes.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0009]
    The primary objective of the present invention is to provide a shoe including a physical measuring device to measure weight, fat ratio, rate or movement, caloric use information, or other physical information of users, and to allow users to easily and readily know their physical conditions.
  • [0010]
    In accordance with one aspect of the invention, there is provided a shoe comprising a shoe sole including a heel portion having a chamber formed therein, a detecting device disposed in the chamber of the heel portion of the shoe sole, and arranged to be depressed and actuated by a heel portion of a user, a processor device attached to the shoe and electrically coupled to the detecting device, to receiving information from the detecting device, and to process the information into physical information of the user, and a display device coupled to the processor device, to receive and display the physical information from the processor device, and to allow the user to readily know his physical conditions.
  • [0011]
    An insole may further be provided and engaged into the shoe, and may include a rear portion disposed above the detecting device. The detecting device may be secured onto or contacted with the rear portion of the insole and engaged into the chamber of the heel portion of the shoe sole.
  • [0012]
    A signal receiving device may further be provided and electrically coupled to the display device, and a signal transmitting device may be electrically coupled to the processor device, to transmit the physical information from the processor device to the display device and to have the physical information to be displayed in the display device.
  • [0013]
    The shoe may include a shoe front having a recess formed therein to receive the processor device. A housing may further be provided to receive the signal receiving device and the display device.
  • [0014]
    Further objectives and advantages of the present invention will become apparent from a careful reading of the detailed description provided hereinbelow, with appropriate reference to the accompanying drawings.

  • [0021]
    FIG. 7 is a perspective view illustrating a signal receiving device and a display device of the shoe.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT
  • [0022]
    Referring to the drawings, and initially to FIGS. 1 and 2, a shoe 1 in accordance with the present invention comprises a shoe sole 10 including a heel portion 11 having a chamber 12 provided or formed therein for receiving a detecting device 20 therein, such as a pressure transducer, a strain gage, a strain meter, a variable resistor, a tension meter, or the like, which is arranged to be depressed or actuated by heel portions of users.
  • [0023]
    An insole 13 may further be provided and engaged into the shoe 1, and may include a rear portion 14 engaged onto or disposed above the detecting device 20, and contacted with the detecting device 20. Alternatively, as shown in FIGS. 3 and 4, the detecting device 20 may first be attached or secured onto the rear portion 14 of the insole 13 and then engaged into the chamber 12 of the heel portion 11 of the shoe sole 10.
  • [0024]
    The shoe 1 further includes a shoe front 15 having a recess 16 provided or formed therein for receiving a processor device 30 therein, which is electrically coupled to the detecting device 20, to receiving information from the detecting device 20. For example, the detecting device 20 may be used to detect or measure the weight of the user, the actuation time of the detecting device 20, or other physical information of users, and to send the information to the processor device 30.
  • [0025]
    A display device 40 may be attached to or engaged onto the processor device 30 (FIGS. 2, 4), or received in the recess 16 of the shoe front 15 (FIG. 5), and electrically coupled to the processor device 30, to display information from the processor device 30. For example, the processor device 30 may receive the information from the detecting device 20, and may receive, calculate, treat, process or convert the information into the other physical information of the users.
  • [0026]
    For example, the weight of the user, the actuation time of the detecting device 20 may be directly detected or sensed by the detecting device 20, and may be stored in the processor device 30, and may then be used or calculated by the processor device 30, and calculated into the fat ratio of the user, the rate or movement of the user, the caloric use information of the user, or other physical information of users. The information from the processor device 30 may then be sent and displayed in the display device 40, to allow the users to easily and readily see and know their physical conditions.
  • [0027]
    Alternatively, as shown in FIG. 5, the processor device 30 may also be engaged into the heel portion 11 of the shoe sole 10, or received in the chamber 12 of heel portion 11 of the shoe sole 10, and disposed or located below the detecting device 20, to receive the information from the detecting device 20, and then to calculate or convert the information into the other physical information of the users.
  • [0028]
    Further alternatively, as shown in FIGS. 6 and 7, a signal transmitting device 31 may further be provided and/or disposed on the processor device 30, and electrically coupled to the processor device 30, to transmit the information obtained or calculated by the processor device 30 to a signal receiving device 51 which may be disposed in a housing 50, to which the display device 40 is attached or secured. The display device 40 is electrically coupled to the signal receiving device 51, such that the information obtained or calculated by the processor device 30 may thus be wirelessly sent or transmitted to the signal receiving device 51 and then displayed in the display device 40, to allow the users to easily and readily see and know their physical conditions.
  • [0029]
    For example, the detecting devices 20 and the processor devices 30 may be attached to the shoes of patients or the like, and the housings 50 and the display devices 40 may be disposed in a patient care center, to allow the information of the patients to be obtained or received by the patient care center, and to allow the patient care center to take actions to help the patients when required.
  • [0030]
    Accordingly, the shoe in accordance with the present invention includes a physical measuring device to measure weight, fat ratio, rate or movement, caloric use information, or other physical information of users, and to allow users to easily and readily know their physical conditions.
  • [0031]
    Although this invention has been described with a certain degree of particularity, it is to be understood that the present disclosure has been made by way of example only and that numerous changes in the detailed construction and the combination and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as hereinafter claimed.
