  • Patent number: 11358027
    Abstract: A non-limiting example training instrument comprises a hollow main body formed of an aluminum alloy. The main body is constituted by two gripping portions opposite to each other with a space therebetween and a coupling portion coupling the two gripping portions. A load sensor is arranged in the coupling portion inside the main body. The load sensor is a load cell, a strain gauge affixed to an interior of the main body, and a part of the main body to which the strain gauge is affixed functions as a strain body. Therefore, if a user applies a force so as to bring the two gripping portions close to each other or a force so as to move the two gripping portions away from each other, a load thereof is detected by the load sensor.

  • Patent number: 11362894
    Abstract: When separate service apparatuses that provide various communication services to users are connected by a wiring with communication functional units interposed, if there is a wiring abnormality, the location of the abnormality is easily identified. When a wiring connection is completed between separated service apparatuses X and Y that provide various communication services to user terminals 31 and 32 with communication functional units A1 and B2 interposed, a wiring management system 10A includes a transmission network management apparatus 14A that identifies a wiring abnormality. The transmission network management apparatus 14A associates endpoint names of the service apparatuses X and Y and of the functional units A1 and B2 with opposite endpoint names on the opposite sides, defines opposite endpoint IDs of the endpoints of the functional units A1 and B2 as expected values, and saves the end points in association with the opposite endpoint IDs in a DB 14b.
