The effect of simulated weightlessness on bone metabolism was investigated in skeletal unloading for 4 days. Skeletal unloading was designed using the model of hind-limb hang in rats. In hypokinetic state, rats were fed while the right hind limb was weighed down and the left hind limb was unloaded (a state of weightlessness). Bone metabolism in normal rats(More)
The effect of beta-alanyl-L-histidinato zinc (AHZ) on bone metabolism was investigated in osteoblastic MC3T3-E1 cells. Cells were cultured for 3 days at 37 degrees C in a CO2 incubator in plastic dishes containing alpha-modified minimum essential medium supplemented with 10% fetal bovine serum. After the cultures, the medium was exchanged for that(More)
The Straw-like User Interface is a novel interface system that allows us to virtually experience the sensations of drinking. These sensations are created based on referencing sample data of actual pressure, vibration and sound produced by drinking from an ordinary straw attached to the system. This research of presenting virtual drinking sensations to the(More)
1 Introduction An evolutionary interface system allows users to virtually experience the sensations of drinking. The sensations are created by referencing sample data of actual pressures, vibrations, and sounds produced by drinking from an ordinary straw attached to the system. Our lips and mouths are some of the most sensitive parts of the human body, as(More)
