Abstract

Users of laser photo-therapy helmets are brought online into a larger community of other users and hair-loss professionals. Together, they assist and contribute to coaching one another in the best automated treatment regimens and use of the devices. Statistical and analytical data is centrally collected by network servers and web portals from the laser photo-therapy helmets through mobile app's installed on users' mobile devices. Data mining then makes it possible for a central operator to isolate which users are struggling and that could benefit from professional assistance. A statistical analysis also allows a variety of treatment regimens to be tested, and for the best ones that produce optimal results, to be identified and then widely promoted to the whole community.

Description

COACHING, DOCUMENTING, REPORTING, AND MANAGING SCALP HAIR RECOVERY WITH LASER PHOTO-THERAPY DEVICES

FIELD OF INVENTION

The present invention relates to a method of coaching users of laser photo-therapy devices to success by

documenting, reporting, and managing their scalp hair

recovery. And more particularly, to bringing together laser photo-therapy device users at home with hair-loss

professionals in a community to work together more efficiently to improve the long-term results and user satisfaction with the laser photo-therapy.

BACKGROUND

Hair-loss happens to all of us as we age, some more than others. Products to prevent and restore hair-loss offer hope, but disappointment looms if users expect too much or are too impatient for the lotions, shampoos, ointments, creams, and devices to have effect. Some therapeutic courses require as much as one hundred weeks to play out. However, the slow but steady progress and results can be very difficult for users to discern or recognize.

So, what is needed is a tool for users to receive coaching on the proper and regular use of devices and

medicines, and to be reassured by self-documenting their progress in a series of time-lapse videos. Reassurances are vital in keeping users satisfied throughout their hair recovery journeys. And reassurances based on hard evidence help win the hearts and minds of professionals and therapists to continue to recommend the devices, methods, and medicines.

Traditionally, a wide variety of medicines and devices that regenerate and promote hair growth for the user-clients are sold by selected supplier-professionals that then provide follow up consulting and care. The number of user-clients worldwide can run into the millions .

Theradome Inc. markets a FDA-cleared laser photo-therapy device to treat hair-loss, e.g., their helmet model LH80 PRO. The Theradome LH80 PRO is a helmet-styled photo-therapy device that includes a microcomputer and control program, a low- level, coherent laser light diode array, and wireless

transceiver access to connect with the Internet. Each device includes a unique serial number used to register the device through a mobile app with a central server. Hair-loss

professionals that sell these devices also register with a web portal central server and are assigned oversight

responsibilities organized by the device serial numbers they provided to retail users .

Users at home place the helmet on their heads

periodically in scheduled sittings to receive a series of controlled scheduled doses of low-level coherent laser light at therapeutic wavelengths delivered to their scalps . Such helmet styled photo-therapy devices are fully described by me in United States Patent Application 14/753,000, filed

06/28/2015, and my continuation-in-part (CIP) United States Patent Application 15/669,928, filed 08/05/2017.

SUMMARY

Briefly, embodiments of the present invention tie users of laser photo-therapy helmets into a larger community of other users and hair-loss professionals. Together, they assist and contribute to coaching one another in the best treatment regimens and use of the devices . Statistical and analytical data is centrally collected by network servers and web portals from the laser photo-therapy helmets through mobile app 106 installed on users ' mobile devices . Data mining then makes it possible to isolate which users are struggling and that could benefit from professional assistance. A statistical analysis also allows a variety of treatment regimens to be tested, and for the best ones that produce optimal results, to be

identified and then widely promoted to the whole community.

Fig. 1 represents a single-user site 100 in a much wider SCALPCOACH community 200 (Fig. 2) of thousands of users. The use of a laser light therapy hair restoration device begins with a treatment regimen. A balding single user 101

periodically wears a laser helmet (LH) 102 that emits therapeutic doses of 678-nm monochromatic laser light. Such doses are delivered in order to restore hairloss due to balding in prescribed amounts in up to one hundred weeks of daily-weekly treatment sessions. Voice commands can be spoken to LH 102 by user 101 with the assistance of a mobile device 104 and SCALPCOACH mobile app 106 and an online SCALPCOACH community 200 that provides artificial intelligence.

Similarly, voice synthesized words and phrases can be spoken to user 101 by LH 102, also with the assistance of mobile device 104, SCALPCOACH mobile app 106, and the online

SCALPCOACH community 200. Commands to LH 102 can be directly entered into mobile device 104 and SCALPCOACH mobile app 106. Status, logs, messages, and instructions from LH 102 can also be obtained directly from mobile device 104 with the

coordination of functions provided by SCALPCOACH mobile app 106.

Each laser photo-therapy devices has an embedded microcomputer wirelessly connects to the Internet, such as through a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) transceiver. Each laser photo-therapy device is marked with a serial number the user- clients may use to register their particular laser phototherapy device. Each laser photo-therapy device is thereafter able to report its usage statistics when it's online, and these statistics are collected and analyzed to provide and improve business management. For example, the collected usage statistics for user-client may indicate that their particular laser photo-therapy device isn't being used correctly, and so a push notification can be sent from the business manager to supplier-professional to follow up on that. Or, supplier- professional may discover the problem themselves on a routine survey of the several user-clients they're responsible for.

Should any registered user-client require customer support, they be directed to contact the customer help center and log in with their serial number. A complete record of the contact and the resolution are kept and used in statistical analyses to spot various operational difficulties the user- clients may be having with their individual laser photo¬ therapy devices . Such statistical analyses and the full context and content of the customer service contact are available to the administrator and selected bits to supplier- professionals who have a need-to-know.

A very similar, helmet-styled photo-therapy hairloss restoration device like LH 102 is more fully described by me in United States Patent Application 14/753,000, filed

06/28/2015, and my continuation-in-part (CIP) United States Patent Application 15/669,928, filed 08/05/2017. The online SCALPCOACH community 200 is more fully described herein, and also in my United States Provisional Patent Application 62/474,074, filed 03/21/2017, and is one the present

application claims benefit of. I am presently marketing my earlier versions of LH 102 commercially in the United States as the Theradome brand LH80 PRO, among other devices.

SCALPCOACH mobile app 106 is implemented for both iPhone and Android operating systems with CRM integration (account creation, helmet registration, chat function, store and customer login) . Mobile app 106 includes functions for:

Diagnosing hair-loss level; Tracking of progress through photos; Scheduling Theradome treatments and generating a schedule; Sharing of updates with hair-loss experts, family and friends through web portal, e-mail, social media and SCALPCOACH accounts; Getting feedback and guidance from hair- loss professionals; Inviting hair-loss professionals to join the SCALPCOACH community 200; Compiling reports and records for hair-loss professionals; Obtaining notifications and reminders for treatment sessions, updates on badges and rewards, blog updates, new products and other news; Earning gamification rewards; Entering monthly contests to win prizes; Accessing SCALPCOACH web portal 242 services through tight integration; Organizing photo galleries and time-lapse images.

Users are asked to input the start dates of their various hair and scalp regimens with frequency of use. A schedule is generated to reduce dosage for minoxidil and finasteride, and other medications likely to induce shedding. Theradome model LH80 PRO is set to ON as the default option. Users cannot proceed to a next section until a start date for treatments has been confirmed.

A "Photo Tutorial" is delivered to explain various camera template functions, set-ups and tips to for obtaining optimum photos results . Users are encouraged to enlist the help of another as photographer or to use the Theradome " ScalpSelfie" . The directions emphasize the importance of taking consistent, high-quality photos . Users take their first photo ScalpSelfies using one of four templates that each represent four head shots: 1) upper frontal, 2) upper rear, 3) right side, and 4) left side. Users can always return back to the Tutorial. Based on previous selections, a modal window introduces either a Savin or Norwood scale for female or male patients,

respectively. Users are instructed to hold a "Compare" button on a subsequent screen to toggle between illustrations and their first photo. Closing the modal reveals the appropriate scale. Tapping a "Continue" button confirms a hair-loss scale selection .

Users can select 1:9 options for the Savin hair-loss scale. Users can hold the "Compare" button to toggle between the selected illustration and their first photo. Users then confirm their final selection by tapping a "Continue" button. Users can select 1:12 options for the Norwood hair-loss scale. Users can hold the "Compare" button to toggle between the selected illustration and their first photo. Users then confirm their final selection by tapping "Continue" . Users can select 1:6 options to determine their skin type. Skin type data does not affect a user's treatment and is only collected for internal reference. A treatment modal appears after all user data has been collected. Users are informed that a treatment schedule is about to be generated. Users proceed to set the first date and time of their treatment. Treatment schedule for a full year is generated based on a user's frequency settings . Treatment calendar has a "monthly" view as default, and a "weekly" view as an alternative. Users can thereafter share their treatment schedule, launch the camera for additional photos, and access all primary and secondary menu items . A first treatment can be scheduled by tapping dates on a treatment calendar that launches 1:4 modal screens. Users can either mark a treatment as completed or missed, or launch their calendar to modify or schedule other treatments.

Users can share dashboard reports, launch the camera to take additional photos, and access all primary and secondary menu items . Additional functions and choices include viewing data charts and infographics with widgets such as : "Optimal Energy Dosage Levels': data chart that displays energy data for completed treatments; "Your Hair Loss Phase": infographic to be updated based on number of completed treatments;

"Discontinue Treatment" : counter that tabulates number of days to stop usage of other hair-loss treatments based on

Proprietary usage; "Badge Counter Bar" : visual tracker for total number of badges earned; "Photo Counter Bar" : visual tracker for total number of photos taken; and "Next Scheduled Treatment": digital timer to count down scheduled treatment. Users can share with a physician: SCALPCOACH account,

Facebook, Twitter, e-mail or their own SCALPCOACH account by tapping the corresponding icons . One modal can be used for a treatment calendar, photo gallery, profile and rewards areas.

When taking photos after an initial photo, an updated photo template modal appears . Users are given five template choices instead of four, e.g., an additional overlay template option. The additional overlay template option allows users to superimpose live photos with previous photos to aid in consistent photo alignment and create comparison photos and time-lapse movies . Selecting a template launches the camera API . Users take their second photo using one of : upper frontal, upper rear, right side, left side and overlay templates . Users can opt at anytime to return to the

dashboard. Users can share photo gallery reports, launch the camera to take additional photos, and access all primary and secondary menu items. Users can create comparison photos, time-lapse movies or access the photo tutorial. Photos are sorted by month with additional viewing options, e.g., initial and comparison photos or time-lapse movies .

Launching a "Compare Photo" widget asks the user to select two photos from a gallery. Photos are sorted by month, with additional options for viewing tagged photos, e.g., "upper frontal" and "upper rear". Once confirmed, a composite comparison photo is added to the gallery area. Launching a "Time-lapse Movie" widget asks the user to select multiple photos from the gallery. Photos prior to display are sorted by month, with options for viewing tagged photos, e.g., "front top" and "back top" . Once confirmed, a time-lapse movie is then added to a main gallery area.

In summary, the SCALPCOACH mobile app 106: Allow users with mobile devices to communicate directly with their hair- loss experts; Provide extended functions to users; Provide private device level storage as well as access to SCALPCOACH web portal 242 250 and 260 (Fig. 2) for cloud storage; Allow users to access hair-loss treatment communities to confirm their results and progress; Facilitate the sharing of success results through the building of a dominant hair-loss

community; Strengthen overall confidence in the technology; Become a dominant app for all patients involved in hair-loss treatment and/or experiencing hair-loss; Increase and maintain sales; Commercialize data collection; Commercialize a

proprietary app; Further secure partners and customers;

Improve product performance via usage models; Stay mainstream with the modern inclination to embrace technology.

Fig. 2 represents a SCALPCOACH community 200, and the communications, smartphone, computing, and networking

equipment that interconnects them and that enables a

coordinated and organized hair-loss treatment regimen for each individual helmet-styled photo-therapy hairloss restoration device like LH 102 (Fig. 1) . Hair loss experts, salon owners, and other professionals 210, 220, and 230 sell or otherwise provide, manage, and coach users and their respective user clients 211-213, 221-223, and 231-233 in the proper use of devices like the LH 102.

The professionals 210, 220, and 230 receive assistance in their promotion of additional treatments and products to use in conjunction with the LH 102. This assistance helps with guarantees of future appointments, access to a client success dashboard, client retention after sale of the LH 102, sharing of practice success through data collection, and promotion of a local hair-loss practice through a clinic directory. Such assistance includes artificial intelligence automation and methods .

The user clients 211-213, 221-223, and 231-233 are individually assisted in their custom treatment regimens with: storing and tracking of progress photos they themselves take as selfies, connecting users with professionals for private consultations, accessing a help desk and support center, sharing treatments progress with physicians, friends and family, tracking past and future sessions, registering a LH 102 unit, scheduling of treatment reminders, chats with technical staff, purchases of complementary products, in earning points and rewards, and help in locating nearby hair- loss clinics .

Many of these client and professional functions are wholly provided or assisted by an Internet network server 240 with a SCALPCOACH Professional Web Portal 250, and a

SCALPCOACH User Web Portal 260.

A systems administrator 270, such as a company business that has commercialized the LH 102, engages itself in data mining, business rules setting, and analytics for increasing revenue generation, retrieving marketing testimonials and progress photos, reading post-sales customer satisfaction and support statistics, opening user information dashboard, data mining usage models, customer behavior defined with Google analytics, gaining user insights to improve future products and product migration, and ways of increasing consumer confidence in hair-loss products. Hair loss clients 211-213, 221-223, and 231-233 most likely wish to be discreet regarding their product use. They set up a treatment regimen schedule on SCALPCOACH web portal 242 260 to be reminded of individual treatment sessions.

Clients generally use SCALPCOACH web portal 242 260 for:

tracking overall LH 102 usage, taking photos and unlocking badges, creating a full hair-loss regimen profile, chatting with hair-loss experts if in need of troubleshooting or other type of help, ordering subscription-based complementary products, accessing treatment algorithms for the weening off of certain medications, such as minoxidil and finasteride, altering their treatment schedule, sharing photos with hair- loss experts, and through social media and hair-loss

communities, managing the privacy of their SCALPCOACH web portal 242 posts, and participating in monthly giveaways with rewards based on usage criteria.

Clients usually buy the LH 102 independently and then can contact a hair-loss professional for support. Hair loss professionals 210, 220, and 230 can learn about LH 102 and incorporate the SCALPCOACH methods into their practice. Hair loss experts use the SCALPCOACH web portal 242 250 for:

promoting their practice through a clinic directory and in generating new business from LH 102 users, viewing

comprehensive patient histories, scalp photos and LH 102 schedules, viewing client experience postings, reviewing progress or lack thereof with the LH 102, viewing client progress photos and regimen of supplementary products with frequency of use, recommending additional products and treatments through the SCALPCOACH web portal 242, helping clients of other hair-loss medications withdraw which may no longer be necessary, adjusting the LH 102 treatment schedule of clients, increasing the visibility of client progress and the ability to schedule future appointments .

Clients connect with their respective hair-loss expert through the SCALPCOACH web portal 242 250 and 260 to keep them apprised of their progress through progress photos, treatment schedule, and their dashboard. Clients generally use

SCALPCOACH for: Obtaining advice from hair-loss experts regarding progress, hair and scalp analysis, therapy level adjustment, addition (or weaning off) of medications; Sharing their progress through photos; Connecting with medical practitioners to schedule follow-up appointments; Contacting hair-loss experts with questions and concerns regarding their overall treatment; and Adjusting other medications with hair- loss experts taken for issues other than hair-loss.

Hair Restoration Clinic Clients planning on having a hair transplant and have usually established a relationship with a hair restoration clinic. The clinic may recommended using the LH 102 prior to and post-surgery to maximize success. Clients generally use SCALPCOACH for: Setting up their profile and registering their LH 102; Building their schedules based on the recommendations of their clinic; Taking and sharing progress photos with their clinic; Submitting progress photo updates and LH 102 usage; Sending weekly dashboards in adherence to the recommended regimen; Submitting progress dashboards in between appointments in order to set up future follow-ups and receive suggestions regarding their scalp regimen .

Salon Owner Clients are those that have purchased a LH 102 unit from their salon and are assisted by their stylist in their goals of hair restoration. These Clients generally use SCALPCOACH for: Obtaining guidance from their stylist and boosting their self-confidence; Taking frequent progress photos at home and in the salon; Sharing photos with their stylist; Obtaining tips from their stylist on how to maximize their success with Theradome; Getting new ideas for hair styling and suggestions for new products; and, Communicating directly with their stylist through the SCALPCOACH web portal 242.

Social Media Expert Clients that have suffered alopecia for a while and may have tried numerous products, such as topicals, shampoos, medications and vitamins, as well have adjusted their diet in an attempt to minimize hair-loss. These Clients generally use SCALPCOACH for: Linking up their profile and badge to all social media channels and setting up feeds to receive most up to date Theradome news; Alerting their followers of new progress photos and completed sessions;

Following blog articles and reposting them through their own social media outlets; Sharing their earned badges and contest entries; and, Sending their dashboard and progress photos to their hair-loss experts to show their progress.

Technologically-Challenged Clients are overall very uncomfortable with technology. They have yet to register their LH 102 online, and are skeptical about using the SCALPCOACH regimen. These Clients generally use SCALPCOACH for: Ensuring they follow the default hair restoration regimen (FDA- cleared) ; Using calendar functions to remind them of scheduled treatment sessions; Reading blog articles and learning about updates; Staying informed regarding new products; and,

Purchasing products .

System administrator 270 overseas a customer help center 271; all registrations 272 and system access control of all users, visitors, professionals, and clients; a statistical and analytics processor 273, and a business management automation 274. Fig. 3 represents the dataflow interplay between a mobile app 106 (in clients 211-213, 221-223, and 231-233), server 240, and SCALPCOACH web portal 242 250 and 260. Various left pointing, right pointing, and two-way arrows show which direction data flows between particular matched sub-functions .

Fig. 3 is actually a table that shows how several sub- functions in the programming and firmware must be distributed as front ends and back ends amongst the ScalpCoach mobile app 106, server, and web portal. The Diagram further represents the direction of dataflow between parts of each sub-function. The sub-functions listed here are not exhaustive, nor will all always be required. In software engineering, the terms front end and back end refer to the separation of concerns between the software's presentation layer (front end), and the data access layer (back end) , or the equipment infrastructure and hardware. In a client-server model, each client is considered to be the front end, and the server is considered here to be the back end, even though some of the presentation work is done on the server.

For example, the following TABLE lists the basic sub- functions included in mobile app 106: Sign-In, Account

Registration, Device Registration, Select Professional, Add A Professional, Current Treatments, Manually Add Treatments, Progress Photos, Select Regimen, Manually Set Regimen, Hair Loss Level, Skin Type, Treatment Schedule, Optimal Energy Tracking, Hair Loss Phase, Progress Videos, Total Energy Dosage, Completed Treatments, Push Notifications, and Find Hair Loss Expert.

In general, embodiments of the present invention provide users an automated way to track their hair-loss treatment progress, and to connect hair-loss professionals with their clients and patients in a hair-loss community hosted online. The individual users are guided to collect progress photos with their mobile devices with voice synthesized instructions. These instructions help the users frame a series of consistent images into a smooth time-lapse series . Sharing these and other user-specific field data with hair-loss professionals enables optimized treatment plans to be dispensed and tracked. The laser photo-therapy helmets include a low-level coherent laser light diode array, a microcomputer and control program, and associated wireless access to connect with the Internet and the hair-loss community. Each laser photo-therapy helmet includes a unique serial number useful to register the device through a mobile app 106 with a SCALPCOACH web portal 242 central server. Hair-loss professionals that sell these devices also register with the SCALPCOACH web portal 242 central server. They are assigned oversight responsibilities according to the serial numbers of the laser photo-therapy helmets they sold to their retail users .

Method embodiments of the present invention collect and organize data from the devices, the mobile app 106, the central server, the users themselves, and the hair-loss professionals .

Mobile app 106 (Fig. 1) includes a sub-function that assists users in documenting their hair loss and their progress toward hair recovery with a series of "selfie" photos taken by mobile device 104. Each such selfie photo is

confidentially retained, uploaded, and available to the professional community for analysis.

Referring now to Figs. 4A-4E, a "Select Photo Template" screen 400 can be navigated to and displayed on mobile device 104 (Fig. 1) . It allows the user to touch-select the camera for use with one of four templates, e.g., an upper frontal 410, an upper rear 420, a right side 430, and a left side 440. The digital images the built-in camera of mobile device 104 gets live are then automatically displayed behind the selected template. The purpose of the selected template is to help the user to properly frame the photo that will be "snapped" when a shutter-button 450 is touched.

This photo selfie sub-function advances the photo just taken most of the way to the state it ultimately needs to be in as a constituent frame in a time-lapse movie. A form of anti-jitter processing is employed to make small adjustments in each photo taken to remove any jump or jitter that would disrupt a smooth presentation. Anti-jitter camera photo frame processing for videos is conventional, and need not be described in further detail here.

It is obvious that a user would have some difficulty in taking such photos themselves . A selfie stick of my invention can help a user who has no one available to assist. I am commercializing such selfie stick under my brand name

SCALPSHOT .

The SCALPSHOT selfie stick "pairs' with BLE wireless and the mobile app 106. It improves before and after photo taking which allows more comfort and consistent progress photos, and increases compliance and customer progress tracking for successful results. The SCALPSHOT selfie stick provides a telescoping 31" extension in a smooth and easy extendable handle. It is wireless; portable; mini-size, lightweight; and travel friendly. A silicone-coated universal-phone holder gripper holds mobile device 104 securely. The whole unit is one-piece with a built-in remote shutter that doesn't require a charger .

In summary, SCALPSHOT is a tool to simply using a mobile device with a camera to take a series of photographs of the users' scalps. It helps ensure each photograph is consistently framed and cropped using manual and electronic means before each is added to a time-lapse movie by a before-and-after auto moviemaker. Each time a user takes a photo of their scalp according to computer synthesized voice directions, the mobile app 106 automatically adds the latest photo. An objective observation of the success of the hair-loss therapy is therefore available during the course of treatments to the user and their responsible hair-loss professional.

A method embodiment of the present invention that improves the results realized by users of hair-loss

restoration therapeutic devices begins by delivering

therapeutic doses of 678-nm monochromatic laser light to the scalp of a single user from an array of laser diodes inside a helmet. The delivery of therapeutic doses is scheduled according to a treatment regimen with a microcontroller disposed inside the helmet and that has wireless communication with a user's mobile device and a mobile app . Any actual deliveries of the therapeutic doses by the microcontroller are logged and reported through the wireless communication to the user's mobile device and the mobile app to a server.

Photographs of the scalp of the single user are periodically taken with the user ' s mobile device according to a template displayed by the user's mobile device. These are reported as a series of personal progress photos to the server through the user's mobile device and the mobile app. The personal progress photos of the scalp of the single user taken at different times are compared to discern and detect the long-term effectiveness of the delivery of therapeutic doses in the restoration of hair to the scalp of the single user.

A series of the personal progress photos of the scalp of the single user taken at different times is arranged into a time-lapse movie with the server. The single user is reassured as to the effectiveness of a treatment regimen including the delivering of therapeutic doses by displaying the time-lapse movie to the single user though the mobile app to the user's mobile device or through a web portal delivered by the server over the Internet. Reassured users will stay with their treatment regimens and encourage others to buy such devices and subscribe to such treatment regimens .

The actual progress of the single user the effectiveness of a treatment regimen is documented to a professional by displaying the time-lapse movie to the hair-loss professional though a mobile device or through a web portal delivered by the server over the Internet. So, hair-loss professionals armed with such photographic evidence of hair-loss restoration progress or lack of progress are thus better informed in coaching and managing the single users .

Statistics, analyses, and insights are calculated from the logs and personal progress photos reported by many of the single users to the server through their respective mobile devices and mobile apps and making such information

selectively available on the Internet with the server.

An important aspect of the Method is connecting together the single user with any of several professionals in a real live voice or texting chat mode. The single user may be rewarded for their commercial loyalty based on usage of the hair-loss restoration therapeutic devices.

Although particular embodiments of the present invention have been described and illustrated, such is not intended to limit the invention. Modifications and changes will no doubt become apparent to those skilled in the art, and it is intended that the invention only be limited by the scope of the appended claims .
