Surgical instruments with computerization is demanded to prevent medical error, the burden reduction of the nurse, quality improvement of the operation. In this study, a radio frequency identification tag was made from ceramic was developed. As the results, the sterilization characteristic of repetition was 2% of failure rate. The above-mentioned heating(More)
In order to develop an evaluation system for foot arch type in the elderly using foot pressure distribution data, foot pressure distribution parameters were selected and the data thereby derived were discussed. Results from the study show that the midfoot area and pressure ratios were correlated to foot arch type determined by visual analysis and were not(More)
The kinds of change in facial expression which can be produced by a sender's neural control of facial muscles, and, at the same time, can be visually perceived by a listener are described in discrete symbols. The linguistic information supplemented by the facial expressions in signing is categorized into syllabic, lexical and syntactic components. In order(More)
Background The foot arch serves important functions in regard to shock absorption and the action of walking. Simple and quantitative classification of foot arch types such as flat foot and high arch would be helpful in health support for the elderly. The present authors have developed a classification system for foot arch type showing high reliability using(More)
Resolution of the fundamental frequency of speech sound required for the design of a speech processor of a cochlear implant device is investigated, with special regard to transmitting voice pitch information in Asian languages. Clinical application of the cochlear implant has spread rapidly in recent years to Asian countries where a variety of languages(More)
The foot arch serves important functions related to shock absorption and the action of walking. Simple and quantitative classifications of foot arch types, such as flat feet and high arches, help to provide health support services for the elderly. To develop an evaluation system for foot arch types using foot pressure distribution data, discriminant(More)
A multipurpose symbolic system which can describe all of the mouth shapes conveying various kinds of linguistic information in signing, speech dialogue, and speechreading is developed, taking account of the constraints of anatomical structure and neural control and the possibility of visual discrimination. In order to make the changes in the(More)
