  • Patent number: 11330995
    Abstract: The present invention images a heartbeat strength representing the strength of pulsations (beats) on a map as a new dynamics index different from the conventional waveform numerical value. A computation section according to the present invention obtains, from time-course changes of the blood flow map obtained as a result of computation of blood flow speed, a signal intensity at a fundamental frequency determined from time-series blood flow data within a predetermined region, and calculates a heartbeat strength which represents the strength of heartbeats on the basis of the signal intensity. A display section images and displays the heartbeat strength calculated by the heartbeat strength computation section. Also, the display section displays the heartbeat strength calculated by the heartbeat strength computation section by superimposing the heartbeat strength on a combined map created by averaging a plurality of blood flow maps arranged in a chronological order.

  • Patent number: 10344455
    Abstract: Operating information (a pilot pressure, a pump pressure, a hydraulic oil temperature, an engine rotational speed, an hour meter and the like) of a hydraulic excavator and use environment information (operator information) of the hydraulic excavator are transmitted to a center server together with body information (for example, a model, a type, a type number, an identification number and the like) from the hydraulic excavator. For example, when a hydraulic hose as a replaceable component of the hydraulic excavator is replaced, the replaceable component information (a replaceable component name and a replacement date) is transmitted to the center server from a computer for maintenance. The center server predicts a replacement time of the replaceable component (hydraulic hose) using the use environment information of the hydraulic excavator in addition to the operating information and the replaceable component information of the hydraulic excavator.
