Abstract

A Health Tracking Program of the invention is software that can read exercise equipment devices such as pedometers, weight scales, pulse monitors and calorie meters. User data is imported and exported to the software where it is displayed in a useful manner to indicate how a user is progressing. Users can input their own information such as weight, caloric intake, caloric expenditure, body mass index and activities performed. Software can upload selected user data to the internet.

Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO REALTED APPLICATIONS

  • STATEMENT REGARDING FEDERALLY SPONSERED RESEARCH OR DEVELOPMENT
  • Not Applicable
  • REFERENCE TO SEQUENCE LISTEING, A TABLE, OR A COMPUTER PROGRAM LISTING COMPACT DISC APPENDIX
  • Not Applicable
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • In considering what a person would do to monitor their health and the necessary devices they would use to monitor and track their progress, it is difficult to maintain records across several devices used. These devices may include a bathroom scale, pedometer, calorie meter, pulse monitor, or other exercise devices to monitor weight and or body mass index (water hydration levels, bone and muscle mass, body fat percentage, etc.). Individuals may like to keep track of their progress after each exercise, blood pressure reading, weight reading and food intake. Even when health data is recorded on these devices individually, it is usually not displayed or interpreted in as useful a manner as it could be.
  • BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • A Health Tracking Program of the invention is software that can read data off of a variety of exercise devices. Once the device is connected to a computer, mobile or stand alone device, the software automatically recognizes the device and user. Once a device or a plurality of these devices collectively or individually syncs, data is imported and/or exported. The data is stored on both the exercise device and host device. Information stored includes blood pressure, weight, caloric intake, caloric expenditure, body mass index and activities performed. The software extracts the data and displays useful information about the user's progress, both current and historical. Selected user data can be uploaded to the internet for physicians and social networking.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE SEVERAL VIEWS OF THE INVENTION
  • FIG. 1 is a flow diagram illustrating a method of syncing data using a Health Tracking Program of the invention.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • A Health Tracking Program of the invention can be executed manually or automatically when a user connects 1 an exercise device 7 to a host device 2 as seen in FIG. 1. Once these components are connected, the program can perform hardware and user recognition 3. The exercise device also recognizes the host device 8 so data can be imported and exported to the host device from the exercise device 9. User recognition allows multiple users to use the same exercise device while still keeping all users' exercise data separate. Data from the exercise device 7 can be imported and/or exported 4 to the host device and organized by user. Once the data has been imported and/or exported 4 to the host device 2, the data can be manipulated and displayed 5 into useful information. Information may include health information, exercise strategies, and visualizations. Data can include current and historical body mass index, weight, calorie intake, calorie expenditure, pulse monitoring, and pedometer recordings. Users have the option of uploading 6 selected data to the internet. Users may choose to send selected data to their physicians or social networks.

Claims (2)

1. A health tracking program comprising:
a manual or automatic program startup that recognizes at least one or a plurality of users and exercise devices when exercise device(s) connect(s) with host device;
data entry for user to input health data;
capability of importing and exporting data from at least one or a plurality of exercise devices to host device and from host device to at least one or a plurality of exercise devices;
and a historic and current display of data with visualizations.
2. The health tracking program of claim 1, further comprising the capability of uploading selected user data to the internet.
