  • Publication number: 20160128591
    Abstract: A measurement system of respiration-related signals includes a plurality of electrodes, an ECG processing device, and an analysis device. The ECG processing device acquires a first analog differential signal and a second analog differential signal through the electrodes and generates a Lead-I ECG signal and a Lead-II ECG signal which is orthogonal to the Lead-I ECG signal after processing the two analog differential signals. The analysis device executes a trigonometric function to calculate angle change values of a cardiac axis based on the acquired Lead-I ECG signal and the Lead-II ECG signal, and further generate a cardiac axis angle change waveform according to the continuous angle change values. Accordingly, the cardiac axis angle change waveform is suitable for the prediction of respiratory conditions of the participant because of the high positive correlation between the frequency of the cardiac axis angle change waveform and the human respiratory frequency.

  • Patent number: 9095644
    Abstract: A fluid collector has a container, a T-tube, a first screw unit and a second screw unit. The T-tube is connected to the container and has a main pipe and a branch pipe. The first screw unit is mounted in an outlet end of the main pipe. The second screw unit is mounted in a connecting end of the branch pipe, which is connected to the main pipe. The branch pipe has a detecting opening far from the connecting end and connects to a detecting device. By changing the length of the first and second screw units, different detecting values of the pressure are adjusted according to containers with different capacities. Moreover, with the flowing resistance resulting from the first and second screw units, different pressure variations are performed when liquid or air passes through the T-tube. Therefore, massive hemorrhage is clearly identified to keep the patient safe.

  • Patent number: 8823511
    Abstract: An approach is provided for remote healthy caring and monitoring through data transmission and processing. A biological monitoring device comprises a biological sensor, a motion detector, a warning module, a transmitting module and a controller. The biological sensor acquires a biological data from a person. The motion detector senses a variation of acceleration and a variation of angle to acquire a physical condition data. The transmitting module transmits the biological data and the physical condition data to a terminal device. The controller calculates the biological data and the physical condition data based on a predetermined rule, and sends a control signal to trigger a warning module or the transmitting module according to a calculating result. The warning module is configured to send a noticeable signal to inform the person. Therefore, the monitoring range is dynamically adjusted based on the biological and physical of the person.

  • Publication number: 20130317463
    Abstract: A negative pressure wound therapy system has a buffering unit connected between an actuator and a wound dressing. The buffering unit has similar physical condition with the wound, and consumes its negative pressure to compensate for the negative pressure loss in the wound to resist the pressure rise in the wound during slight leakage. The buffering unit also keeps the actuator from directly operating on the wound to reduce the pain of the patient while lowering the pressure in the wound.
