Application: Fatigue detection device, support system, and fatigue detection method (Patent ID: US20240081774A1)

The patent filed by Seiko Epson Corp describes a fatigue detection device that utilizes an ultrasonic device to transmit waves into a living body and detect the reflected waves from tissues to determine the fatigue state of the tissue when a load is applied. The device includes a processor that analyzes the received signals to detect changes in the tissue, specifically focusing on the thickness ratio of the tissue when under load. Additionally, the device can utilize machine learning models to process multiple received signals over different times to accurately determine the fatigue state of the tissue.

Furthermore, the patent also describes a support system incorporating the fatigue detection device, a fatigue information processor, and an annunciator to inform users about their health state based on the fatigue information obtained. The system allows for real-time monitoring and feedback to users regarding their fatigue levels and overall health status. Additionally, a fatigue detection method is outlined, detailing the process of detecting tissue fatigue using the ultrasonic device and analyzing the received signals to determine the tissue's fatigue state when subjected to a load. Overall, the patent presents an innovative approach to fatigue detection and monitoring using ultrasonic technology and machine learning algorithms.
