  • Patent number: 11554257
    Abstract: A power transmission unit includes a second coil which contactlessly transmits power, a power reception unit includes a first coil that receives the power transmitted from the power transmission unit, and a medical instrument includes the power reception unit and is embedded in a body. The medical instrument includes a notification unit that is composed of a plurality of light emitting units that provides notification that a relative positional relationship between the power transmission unit and the power reception unit has reached a predetermined state by emitting light using the power received at the power reception unit when the predetermined state is reached by the movement of the power transmission unit. A soft unit into which an injection needle is inserted, the plurality of light emitting units being arranged so as to extend along an outer edge of the soft unit.
