  • Patent number: 11504626
    Abstract: A seat system includes a seat including a sensor configured to acquire information for detection of a motion of an occupant seated on a seat body, a terminal device configured to acquire the information from the sensor, and a server capable of communicating with the terminal device. The terminal device executes a game using the sensor based on the information, and acquires an execution result corresponding to the occupant for a game played by the occupant. The server generates integrated data by integrating execution results of the game acquired from another terminal device, and computes a reference value for execution results of the game based on the integrated data. The terminal device or the server assigns a difficulty level of the game for the terminal device based on the execution result corresponding to the occupant and the reference value. The terminal device reflects the difficulty level on the game.

  • Publication number: 20220285031
    Abstract: A medical information processing apparatus comprises processing circuitry. The processing circuitry calculates a functional rate quantitively indicating a degree as to whether or not a body site related to a symptom of a target patient is properly functioning. The processing circuitry calculates a current state of the target patient as a first state. The processing circuitry estimates, with reference to time-series second medical information having a tendency similar to the first medical information and being related to a similar patient, a likelihood that the state of the target patient may be exacerbated at a future time as a second state, on a basis of a functional rate of the similar patient calculated from a selected part of the second medical information corresponding to time since the similarity to the first medical information was recognized. The processing circuitry causes the first state and the second state to be displayed.
