  • Patent number: 10638039
    Abstract: An apparatus for controlling image capturing, includes circuitry to control image capturing operation of each one of a first image capturing device and a second image capturing device, so as to cause the first image capturing device and the second image capturing device to cooperate with each other to perform linked image capturing, the first image capturing device capable of capturing an image with an angle of view wider than that of the second image capturing device. The circuitry controls one of the first image capturing device and the second image capturing device to start image capturing in response to starting of image capturing by other one of the first image capturing device and the second image capturing device.

  • Patent number: 9730594
    Abstract: An arterial-wall stiffness evaluation system of the present invention includes: a cuff to be attached to a part of a living body; a pressure sensor for detecting pressure in the cuff; a cuff-pressure control section for controlling the pressure in the cuff to be increased or decreased up to a predetermined value, based on a value detected by the pressure sensor; and a data processing section for calculating, based on pulse waves detected by the pressure sensor, pulse-wave amplitudes of cuff-pressure pulse waves and blood-pressure pulse waves, and for evaluating arterial-wall stiffness based on the pulse-wave amplitudes. The arterial-wall stiffness is evaluated by a pressure-diameter characteristic curve, which represents a relationship between vascular diameter and transmural pressure applied to a vascular wall, or by estimation from shapes and amplitudes of the detected pulse waves.
