  • Publication number: 20230031399
    Abstract: A blood-viscosity measurement method uses a collection tube includes a bottomed tube having an opening at one end in a length direction and a bottom at the other end in the length direction. A sealing plug includes a sealing part fitted in the opening of the bottomed tube in a hermetically sealed state, a cap part, and a thin connecting part. The sealing part includes a vertically penetrated insertion hole and fitted in the opening of the bottomed tube. The method includes collecting blood using a negative pressure state of the inner space, applying an external force to the cap portion to break the connecting part and removing the cap part to expose the insertion hole at an upper surface of the sealing part, and obtaining blood viscosity by causing a viscosity-measurement falling body to fall from the insertion hole, and measuring a fall terminal velocity of the falling body.

  • Patent number: 11550323
    Abstract: An autonomous moving apparatus includes a moving unit moving the apparatus, a detector detecting distances from surrounding objects and shapes of the objects, and a controller. When a route of the apparatus is adjusted to a route of a follow target under control of the moving unit, the controller controls the moving unit so that the apparatus continues to move without changing the route of the apparatus if the follow target has changed the route but an obstacle having a possibility of causing a movement abnormality when the apparatus moves over the obstacle is present between the route of the follow target and the route of the apparatus. When the obstacle is no longer present between the route of the follow target and the route of the apparatus, the controller controls the moving unit so that the route of the apparatus is adjusted to the route of the follow target.
