The purpose of this study was to clarify the effect of acute exercise in hypoxia on flow-mediated vasodilation (FMD). Eight males participated in this study. Two maximal exercise tests were performed using arm cycle ergometry to estimate peak oxygen uptake $$ \left( {\dot{V}{\text{O}}_{{ 2 {\text{peak}}}} } \right) $$ while breathing normoxic [inspired O2(More)
—A multi-degree-of-freedom (DOF) ultrasonic motor can rotate in three DOFs and does not generate noise. In addition, with an appropriate preloading mechanism, it can generate high torque for its size. The multi-DOF ultrasonic motor is, therefore, anticipated for use as a servomotor in the next generation of robots. However, for several reasons, there have(More)
We investigated the relationship between histological factors and lymph node metastasis in 77 lesions with submucosally invasive colorectal carcinomas to establish useful criteria for lesions in which endoscopic treatment alone results in cure of malignancy. There were positive correlations between histological factors, including the level of invasion, the(More)
—We have been investigating a speech processing system for ensuring safety and security, namely, acoustic-based security system. Focusing on indoor security, we have been studying for an advanced security system which can discriminate emergency shout from the other acoustic sound events based on automatic understanding of speech events. In this paper, we(More)
