    Measurement of bio-information and prevention of fall from bed are needed for elderly person during sleep. In this paper, the authors propose a novel system for these purposes using game machine. Respiration signal can be detected by fluctuation of load value from body motion. Possibility of fall from bed can be easily discriminated from movement and distribution of load value. From experimental results, proposed system was worked well for the purpose of watching elderly person.

    Force plates and treadmills are commonly used to measure the ground reaction force (GRF) and center of pressure (COP) of walking. However, the location and condition of measurement are confined when using force plates and treadmills. To address this issue, we have developed a wearable insole-type force sensor for estimating GRF. In this study, we conducted COP measurements using the insole-type force sensor. The insoletype force sensor is equipped with an array of thin-film force sensors. The arrangement of thin-film force sensors is determined according to the subjectʼs plantar pressure distribution while in a static and upright position, captured on pressure-sensitive paper. To measure plantar pressure changes in the longitudinal direction, sensors are placed in two-by-two fashion on the heel, metacarpophalangeal joint, and big toe areas. In addition, five sensors are placed for measuring changes in the horizontal direction. The total number of sensors used is smaller than that used in similar insole-type sensor. COP were estimated in five male subjects (age: 22.6 ± 1.5 years). Each subject wore the insole-type force sensor on the left foot. The measurements were made with the subject was standing on one leg or walking on the force plate. The COP trajectory calculated from the thin-film force sensor output was corrected for the inherent trajectory of the force plate using multiple regression analysis. In all subjects, the measured and estimated COP trajectories were within 10 mm of each other after correction. The insole-type sensor allows easy measurement of COP while walking naturally.

    Wearable technology for measuring biomedical signal and momentum has been advanced for the purpose of physiological monitoring system during daily life. In measuring ground reaction force, a method to estimate plantar pressure from output of compact force sensors on the underside of footwear has been used. However, compact sensors used in this method are expensive, it is hard to use these sensors in daily monitoring of sports activity and rehabilitation. In this paper, the authors adopted low-priced film force sensors instead of the compact force sensors, and measured load on plantar and made it possible to estimate vertical ground reaction force in walking. In addition, the authors confirmed that this monitoring system can be used in different pace and footwear.

    In recent years, MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) systems have been actually requested to diagnose the moving parts of a human body such as the heart or the blood in angiography, where images should be taken in milliseconds instead of minutes. The gradient power supplies which are small but vital components for advanced MRI require higher output power capability as well as faster rise/fall dynamic response characteristics under a variety of specified current reference signals. This paper presents a novel switch-mode gradient power amplifier using IGBTs which is connected in parallel with the conventional 4-switch full-bridge power conversion circuits at their inputs/outputs in order to realize further high-power density. To satisfy the design specifications which require minimized the ripple and improved the rise/fall dynamic response characteristics of the current in the gradient coil, a unique digital control scheme on the basis of optimal preview type-1 servo system is proposed and described in detail. The above effectiveness is discussed and evaluated through the computer-aided analysis. It is expected that the proposed techniques will highly enlarge the diagnostic target and improve the image quality of ultrahigh-speed scanning MRI. © 2003, The Institute of Electrical Engineers of Japan.

  • Parallel operation of four-switch full-bridge power amplifiers and a unique digital control scheme for advanced magnetic resonance imaging

    H Fukuda, H Takano, T Hatakeyama, M Nakaoka

    In recent years, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems have been in demand to diagnose moving parts in the human body such as the heart or the blood in angiography, where images should be taken in milliseconds instead of minutes. Gradient power amplifiers, which are small but vital components for advanced MRI, require higher output power capacity as well as faster rise/fall dynamic response characteristics under a variety of specified current reference signals. This paper presents a novel switch-mode gradient power amplifier using IGBTs which are connected in parallel to a conventional four-switch full-bridge power conversion circuit at their inputs/outputs in order to realize a higher power density. To satisfy the design specifications, which require minimized tipple and improved rise/fall dynamic response characteristics of the current in the gradient coil, a unique digital control scheme based on an optimal type 1 servo system is proposed and described in detail. The effectiveness of the above is discussed and evaluated through computer-aided analysis. It is expected that the proposed techniques will greatly expand the diagnostic targets and improve the image quality of MRI. (C) 2000 Scripta Technica, Electr Eng Jpn.

    This paper presents a two-paralleled PWM amplifier using switch-mode power current tracking technique in order to generate a gradient magnetic field in the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) system. This circuit has 8-IGBTs at their inputs/outputs so as to realize further high-power density. A digital control scheme can minimize the current ripple and improve its control response in the Gradient Coils (GCs). It is proved that the proposed technique will highly enlarge the diagnostic target and improve the image quality of MRI.

    Wearable technology for measuring biomedical signal and momentum has been advanced for the purpose of physiological monitoring system during daily life. In measuring ground reaction force with wearable module, compact sensors are used. However, they are expensive. So it's hard to use these sensors daily and easily at the spot of walk rehabilitation. In addition, types of modules attached inside or outside of footwear have problems, the former limits footwear to open one and the later loses footwear original characteristic. In this paper, we adopted durable piezoresistive force sensors and developed wearable Ground Reaction Force Measuring System using wireless communication module.

  • 衣類の着用による触覚情報を利用した日常生活動作向上に繋がる方策について

    立位時に身体を支えられない程度の力で床面に固定された物へ触れると,触覚入力を通して自身の身体位置や向きの認識が高まり,姿勢動揺が低下する.この現象は「ライトタッチ効果」と呼ばれている.本研究の目的は,ライトタッチ効果を活用し,衣類を介した触覚入力により,日常生活動作向上に繋がる方策を検討することである.そして,当該年度は,ライトタッチ効果のメカニズムについて検討するとともに,衣類を介したライトタッチ効果獲得の可能性について言及することであった. 立位時のライトタッチ効果について,二点弁別閾により評価した指先の触覚感度と姿勢動揺低下度との関係について調べた結果,触覚感度と姿勢動揺低下度との関係は認められなかった.すなわち,ライトタッチ効果における触覚の役割は,触覚を通して自身の動きを把握しているのではなく,触覚を参照点として,それに対する身体各部位の相対的な位置変化を捉えている可能性を示した.そのため,ライトタッチ効果を得るために必要な触角は高度な感度が必要なのではなく,大凡何かに触れていることが把握できる程度で十分なことを示唆している. この結果をふまえ,腰周りに下腿部まで覆われる布を巻き,布に下肢が接触することに対する歩行能力への影響を調べた.その結果,通常歩行に対して,視覚入力を遮断した(目隠し)歩行では,歩幅が大幅に低下するが,布を巻くことによって,歩幅の低下を抑制することが出来た.すなわち,歩行時に下肢への布の接触があることは,脚を運ぶ方向など歩幅感覚の把握に繋がることを示唆している.この結果は,自身の動きが反映されるような布を身に纏うことにより,布との接触から自身の身体位置や向きの知覚が向上し,歩行時の姿勢制御向上に繋がることを示し,着用する衣類の形状によっては,動作の向上・改善に繋がる可能性を示している.

    In order to measure in real time the ground reaction force, the center of plantar pressure and the arch of sole, we have developed an inexpensive and simple gait measurement insole system by combining two or more commercially available inexpensive thin-film force sensors. Several mechanical properties, such as compressive load, shear force and bending stress, were made to evaluate the performance of commercially available inexpensive thin-film force sensors and a new designed triaxial shear force sensor. In addition, the estimating results of ground reaction force waveform and trajectory of the center of plantar pressure were verified experimentally over different footwear and walking pace on a group of subjects. It will be expected that the research results have been contributed to sports instruction and walking rehabilitation in the field.

    In order to make mechanical indexes for evaluating the quality and strength of human bones, sectional modulus of cortical bones against bending moment and muscle at forearm were analyzed through CT (computed tomography) images. The aging characteristics of women aged 50 to 82 were investigated. The ratio of cross section of muscle to bone and the strength index by using natural frequency of forearm bones corresponding to Young’s modulus were calculated. These indexes showed the tendency to decrease with aging similarly to the bone mineral density. Effective arrangement of sensors and bending properties of thin piezoelectric films were investigated and then the usage as an equipment for measuring and revealing the load relationship between bones and muscle was ascertained.

    In order to easily and quantitatively evaluate the gait in walking rehabilitation, we have developed a reaction force measuring insole and inexpensive wireless measurement system for gait analysis. Several mechanical properties, such as compressive load, shear force and bending stress, were made to evaluate the performance of commercially available inexpensive thin-film force sensors and a new designed uniaxial shear force sensor. As a result, the accuracy for estimating and considerations upon implementation in force measurement for various daily body activities were revealed. In addition, the estimating results of ground reaction force waveform were verified experimentally over different footwear and walking pace on a group of subjects. It will be expected that a simple and inexpensive system to evaluate daily gait has been developed.

    In order to evaluate the quality and strength of human bones, cross sectional areas of bones and muscles of forearm were calculated from computed tomography (CT) image analysis. Then mechanical indexes involving the effect of muscle forces were proposed and the aging porperty was investigated. For comparison the bone mineral density and the strength index by using natural frequency of forearm bones corresponding to Young's modulus were calculated. The proposed indexes with respect to bending and compression showed the tendency to decrease with aging similarly to the bone mineral density and the strength index. Bending and compression properties of thin films of sensors were investigated for revealing the loading relationship between bones and muscle force and measuring those forces, and then the usage as a force sensor was ascertained.

  • Research on evaluation of bone strength using a natural frequency and biomechanical characteristics of forearm

    Concerning evaluating the strength and quality of human bones, we proposed some indexes by the measurement of natural frequencies of forearms and bone mineral densities and then investigated these aging characteristics for female over age 50. Bone mineral densities were measured by pQCT method at both 4% and 20% distal sites of radii and the CT images were analyzed. Results of the present research were as follows: 1. Aging characteristics of total bone density and cortical density at the 20% distal site were compared with those of bone densities at the 4% distal site. It was found that the ratio of total bone density at the 20% site to that at the 4% site was about twice for any age group and the decrease rate of cortical density at the 20% site was smaller than that of total bone densities. 2. Concerning the influence of muscles on bones, the sectional areas of muscles and bones were analyzed from CT images at the 20% site. A method for obtaining the muscle area without fat regions was proposed and the ratio of bone areas to muscle areas (B/M ratio) was used as an index for this purpose. 3. For subjects with the measurement of natural frequencies bone strength indexes of three kinds corresponding to the Young's modulus were calculated and these aging characteristics were investigated. The bone strength index using the total bone density at the 4% site is considered to be most available. The decrease rate of the bone strength index for aging is more remarkable than that of bone mineral densities and B/M ratio. It is found that bone mineral densities and the bone area decrease earlier than bone strength indexes and the muscle area.
