  • Patent number: 11331811
    Abstract: A finger device including a finger segment, a finger base, a first steering control mechanism, a first actuator, a second steering control mechanism, a universal joint and a second actuator is provided. The finger base is connected to one end of the finger segment, and the first steering control mechanism is disposed on the finger base. The first actuator is configured to provide a first moment to the first steering control mechanism, so that the finger segment and the finger base have a degree of freedom in a first moving direction. The second steering control mechanism is disposed on the finger base. The second actuator is configured to provide a second moment to the universal joint. The universal joint is rotatably connected between the second actuator and the second steering control mechanism, so that the finger segment has a degree of freedom in a second moving direction.

  • Patent number: 11065506
    Abstract: A muscle training system configured to train at least one target muscle of a human body includes a muscle training equipment and a controller. The muscle training equipment includes at least one resistance adjustment assembly and at least one vibration detector. The at least one resistance adjustment assembly is configured to provide a resistance force as a training load. The at least one vibration detector is configured to be disposed on the at least one target muscle and produces at least one muscle vibration signal based on an activity of the at least one target muscle training under the resistance force. The controller is configured to control the at least one resistance adjustment assembly to adjust the resistance force according to the at least one muscle vibration signal.

  • Publication number: 20200070005
    Abstract: A muscle training equipment configured to train at least one target muscle of human body and including frame, at least one vibration detector, and at least one resistance adjustment assembly. The at least one vibration detector is configured to be disposed on the at least one target muscle so as to produce at least one muscle vibration signal based on the activity of the at least one target muscle. The at least one resistance adjustment assembly includes motor, handle and linkage assembly. The motor is disposed on the frame and has resistance-adjustable shaft. An end of the linkage assembly is fixed to the resistance-adjustable shaft, and another end of the linkage assembly is pivotally connected to the handle. The at least one resistance adjustment assembly is configured to adjust a resistance force applied on the resistance-adjustable shaft according to the at least one muscle vibration signal.

  • Patent number: 9065288
    Abstract: A current compensation module, a charging apparatus, and a charging apparatus controlling method are disclosed. The current compensation module is used for controlling an outputted charging current in order to charge a battery module. The current compensation module includes a transition unit, a proportional controlling unit, and an integral controlling unit. The transition unit allows an internal signal of the current compensation module increasing from a first voltage. When the internal signal attains to a second voltage, the proportional controlling unit will output a proportional controlling signal to adjust the charging current. When the charging current attains to a rated output current, the integral controlling unit incorporates with the proportional controlling unit to output a proportional-integral controlling signal in order to control and adjust the charging current for the battery module, and to suppress the output overshoot current of the charging apparatus.
