  • Publication number: 20170265251
    Abstract: A far infrared electrically and thermally conductive electrode device includes an electrode set and a connection assembly, through which the electrode set is connected to the case of a host in a wireless way. The electrode set is both electrically and thermally conductive. The method for making the electrode of the electrode device includes steps of disposing an electrode protecting layer on a first side of a far infrared heating layer; disposing an electrode insulating layer on a second side of the far infrared heating layer; disposing an electrode layer on the surface of the electrode insulating layer; and covering the electrode layer with a conducting gel layer. Through the above-mentioned structure, the electrode set emits far infrared rays and generates heat when the host supplies power. The electrode set becomes conductive to simulate nerves of different layers of tissue under a person's skin.

  • Patent number: 8038346
    Abstract: An electronic pacifier thermometer is provided. The electronic pacifier thermometer is composed of a pacifier device and a measurement device. The pacifier device has a built-in temperature sensing element (e.g., a temperature sensor) and a connector element. The measurement device contains a display, a circuit board mainly which is controlled by an integrated circuit, and a cable element. The circuit board contains an incomplete temperature measurement circuit that would be made complete through connection to the temperature sensing element. The temperature measurement circuit has a reference resistor (could also be installed inside the pacifier device) whose resistance difference is relative to the temperature sensing element in the pacifier device which is linearly corresponds to the temperature difference between the measured temperature and a pre-determined temperature value.
