The values for 2014 and 2015 are only for reference due to the fact that not all patent filings of 2014 and 2015 have been published at the time this report was generated. Two uptrends are observed in the period. During the first uptrend from 1999 to 2006, top 10 applicants includes Seiko, Medtronic, Philips, Omron and Biosense. Nike, along with the above-mentioned companies, ranked among major applicants in the second uptrend during 2010 and 2013. Most of the patents published in the earlier uptrend are healthcare-related. As Nike, Fitbit, Google, Apple and other key vendors launched consumer health wearables since 2010, the number of patents involving health management, detection accuracy and battery management started to rise.
