Title
(EN) NOVEL OVULATION PREDICTION DEVICE
(FR) NOUVEAU DISPOSITIF DE PRÉVISION D'OVULATION
Abstract
(EN)
This disclosure provides a stand alone electronic device to predict a likely time of ovulation based on crystal formation in a mucous body fluid sample. Optionally body temperature data may also be measured and saved on the device memory. The device allows user to save the data, download images, and compare results from different times. The disclosure further provides a device that includes software using an algorithm to calculate frequency of crystals on the sample and allowing comparison of the frequencies. The algorithm may use the temperature data also. The device includes an option to transfer data onto a smart phone or similar device. The device is suitable for predicting ovulation of any mammal, including human beings, dogs and livestock including horses.

La présente invention concerne un dispositif électronique autonome pour prédire un moment d'ovulation probable sur la base d'une formation de cristaux dans un échantillon de fluide corporel muqueux. Éventuellement, des données de température corporelle peuvent également être mesurées et sauvegardées dans la mémoire de dispositif. Le dispositif permet à un utilisateur de sauvegarder les données, de télécharger des images et de comparer des résultats de différentes fois. L'invention concerne en outre un dispositif qui comprend un logiciel utilisant un algorithme pour calculer une fréquence de cristaux sur l'échantillon et permettant une comparaison des fréquences. L'algorithme peut également utiliser les données de température. Le dispositif comprend une option pour transférer des données sur un téléphone intelligent ou un dispositif similaire. Le dispositif est approprié pour prédire l'ovulation d'un quelconque mammifère, incluant les êtres humains, les chiens et le bétail, y compris les chevaux.
