Title (EN) SENSING BODY FUNCTIONS
(FR) DÉTECTION DE FONCTIONS CORPORELLES
Abstract:
(EN) A body function sensor (1, 2, 3) for detecting breathing or heart beat or the like has an RF source (5) driving a transmit antenna (20) to create a low frequency (LF) electromagnetic detection field at a location to be occupied by an animal body. A receive antenna (21) is arranged to drive an analyser means (23, 13, 15,) to produce a signal representing the difference between the transmitted and detected signals detect a change in the field caused by the breathing or heart beat of an animal body in the location. A control means (16) controls the frequency of the RF source (5) to ensure resonance, and also controls the analyser means (23, 13), a display monitor (17) and an alarm. A memory (18) records movements of the subject, breathing patterns, pulse rate and posture of the body.
(FR) L'invention concerne un détecteur de fonctions corporelles (1, 2, 3) qui permet de détecter la respiration, les pulsations cardiaques ou des fonctions analogues et qui comprend une source HF (5) pilotant une antenne d'émission (20) afin de créer un champ de détection électromagnétique des basses fréquences (LF) à un emplacement destiné à être occupé par un corps d'animal. Une antenne de réception (21) est conçue pour piloter un moyen d'analyse (23, 13, 15,) afin de produire un signal représentant la différence entre les signaux transmis et détectés et de détecter un changement du champ causé par la respiration ou les pulsations cardiaques d'un corps d'animal dans l'emplacement. Un moyen de commande (16) commande la fréquence de la source HF (5) afin d'assurer la résonance et de commander le moyen d'analyse (23, 13), un moniteur de visualisation (17) et une alarme. Une mémoire (18) enregistre les mouvements du sujet, les modes de respiration, le pouls et la posture du corps.
