  • Patent number: 10602952
    Abstract: An apparatus for guiding a biomedical electrode is provided, which guides a biomedical electrode to be brought into close contact with a living body surface of a voluntary muscle into optimum close contact positions on the basis of positions of the voluntary muscle and a neuromuscular junction of the voluntary muscle inside the living body surface. The relative positions of the voluntary muscle and the neuromuscular junction of the voluntary muscle to the living body surface are detected from muscle action potentials detected by myoelectric detection electrodes put into close contact with a large number of positions on the living body surface. On the basis of the relative position information, a close contact position of the biomedical electrode to be brought into close contact with the living body surface of the voluntary muscle is guided to an optimum position.

  • Patent number: 10426371
    Abstract: An object of the present disclosure is to provide a muscle condition measurement sheet that can quantitatively detect the amplitude and latency of an evoked electromyogram EMG or an evoked mechanomyogram MMG and correctly evaluate the state of activity of a muscle. A pair of stimulating electrodes and all myoelectric detection electrodes come into intimate contact with a body surface of a muscle, appearing on a back surface of an insulating sheet spaced at predetermined intervals; accordingly, the relative position between an electrical stimulation position and the myoelectric detection electrode is fixed and the amplitude and latency of the evoked electromyogram EMG can be quantitatively detected without depending on the stimulation position of an electrical stimulation signal.

  • Patent number: 10390416
    Abstract: The respective proportionality constants of magnetic force by magnetic field producing portion for biasing the plug in the direction of insertion and resilient force by a spring mechanism for biasing the plug in the direction of extraction are adjusted in such a manner that the resilient force is greater than the magnetic force until the plug pin reaches an intermediate insertion position at which the plug pin comes into proximity to or separates from the socket contact, whereas the magnetic force is greater than the resilient force at a position at which the plug pin is inserted into a complete insertion position for a hot-line connection to the socket contact. The plug pin in the vicinity of the intermediate insertion position, at which there is a possibility of occurrence of an arc discharge, is ejected by the resilient force.
