  Referring to FIG. 1, a mobile phone call assisting device (hereinafter simply referred to as “call assisting device”) 10 of this embodiment includes a hug 12. The hug 12 means an object that the user can hug (hug) by turning his / her arm. In this embodiment, the hug 12 is made to have an appearance and a shape based on a minimal design of a human as an example. In other words, the hug 12 of the embodiment includes a head 12a that corresponds to a human head and looks like a head, a body portion 12b that corresponds to a human torso and looks like a human body, and a left and right side from the body. And an arm portion 12c that corresponds to a human hand and an arm and that can be seen as a hand and an arm, and a foot portion 12d that is a lower part of the trunk and corresponds to a human foot and that can be seen as a foot. The size of the hug 12 has a height of 70-80 cm as a whole, and the thickness is such that the user can hug the arm by turning his / her arm. For example, the diameter of the body 12b is about 60 cm ± 10 cm. Is set.

  However, the appearance and shape of the hug 12 are not limited to those shown in FIG.

  As can be clearly understood from the cross-sectional view of FIG. 1D in particular, the hug 12 includes a jacket 14 having the above-described appearance, for example, and a built-in object 16 is built in the jacket 14. The outer cover 14 can be made of a cloth made of any material, for example, a cloth-like cloth, a net-like cloth, a film or a sheet-like cloth, etc. In the embodiment, for example, a cloth such as satin is sewn. ing. As the material of the outer jacket 14, other synthetic resins such as silicon and vinyl chloride can be used. And since the hug 12 is what the user holds as the name suggests, the outer cover 14 is preferably a material that is comfortable to touch and has antibacterial and antifouling properties as much as possible.

  The built-in object 16 accommodated in the jacket 14 may be formed by molding foamed urethane, cotton, or the like in the same shape as the jacket 14, for example, a synthetic resin bead (for example, a diameter of 1 mm, such as polystyrene foam). Degree). In the former case, since the built-in object 16 itself forms the external shape of the hug 12, it is only necessary to cover the built-in object 16, but in the latter case, the built-in object 16 itself has a fixed shape. Since it does not have, the hugging body 12 is made by the procedure of stuffing beads into the jacket 14 prepared earlier. In either case, the hug 12, that is, the built-in object 16 may have elasticity or may not have elasticity. However, since it is desirable not to be too heavy, a foamed resin or the like is suitable as a material for the built-in object 16.

  Further, as the built-in object 16, it may be possible to use a balloon or a water balloon in which a gas or liquid is put in a synthetic resin or rubber bag having the same appearance and shape as the hug 12.

  A pocket 18 is formed in a portion corresponding to the human head, that is, the side surface of the head 12a, in the embodiment, the right side surface of the hug 12 as described above. This pocket 18 is for accommodating a mobile phone 20 such as a smartphone when the hug 12 is used as a call assisting device, as shown in FIG.

  A constricted portion 22 is formed between the head portion 12a of the hugging body 12 and the body portion 12b below the head portion 12a, and the constricted portion 22 is for enabling displacement of the head portion 12a. For example, the mobile phone 20 accommodated in the pocket 18 of the head 12a can be brought as close to the user's ear as possible by displacing the head 12a toward the user's head. It is convenient to draw the head 12a toward the user's head so that the head 12a contacts the user's cheek or the like even when the mobile phone is not in the pocket 18.

  On the back of the telephone call assisting device 10 of the embodiment shown in FIG. 1, that is, the hug 12, arm passage portions 24 a and 24 b are provided above and below the outer surface of the outer cover 14, which can be well understood from FIGS. Forming. The arm passage portions 24a and 24b are portions that the user's arms are intended to pass through when the hug 12 is held by the user. In the embodiment, the arm through portions 24a and 24b are provided outside the outer cover 14 formed by sewing a cloth. For example, a belt-like cloth having a constant width is sewn. Each of the arm passage portions 24a and 24b is formed so as to rise to the left on the front view of FIG. 1A so that the user's arm holding the hug 12 is in the optimum position.

  In the embodiment, the upper arm passage portion 24a passes through the back of the body portion 12b from the back base of the right arm portion 12c and joins the left arm portion 12b and the constricted portion 22 (in human terms). It extends to the “shoulder” portion and is formed to rise to the left. The lower arm passage portion 24b is formed to rise to the left through the back of the lower portion of the body portion 12b (or near the boundary between the body portion 12b and the foot portion 12d). Arm entrances 24aa and 24ba shown in FIG. 1B are formed at both ends of the arm passage portions 24a and 24b, respectively.

  As can be understood from FIG. 1D, each of the arm passage portions 24a and 24b forms a certain gap, and the user's arm is passed through the gap. However, the gap is not such a size that the user's arm passes slowly, but rather a size that feels tight, and when the user's arm is passed through the arm passage portions 24a and 24b, the arm passage portion 24a and The inner surface of the belt-shaped cloth forming 24b is formed in such a size that it contacts the skin of the arm.

  When using the call assistance device 10 shown in FIG. 1, the user puts a mobile phone 20 such as a smartphone in a call state into the pocket 18. However, in the case where the mobile phone 20 has a function (voice control function) that allows a user to make a call by voice, the off-state mobile phone 20 is put in the pocket 18 as it is, and then the user's A call state may be made by voice.

  With the mobile phone 20 in a talking state in the pocket 18, the user can see the right arm from the entrance 24aa (see FIG. 1C) of the upper arm passage portion 24a, as shown in FIG. The arm insertion part 24a is inserted into the arm insertion part 24a so that the hand part is exposed from the outlet 24aa. The left arm is inserted into the arm passage portion 24b from the inlet 24ba of the lower arm passage portion 24b, and the arm passage portion 24b is inserted so that the hand portion is exposed from the outlet 24ba. In this state, since the right arm and the left arm are inserted deeply from the forearm to the upper arm into the arm passing portions 24a and 24b, the front side of the hug 12 is in close contact with the front of the user, and both arms are firmly turned to the back of the hug 12 It will be in the state. The user gets a sense of security when the hug is in close contact with his / her body, thereby realizing healing.

  According to the experiments by the inventors, when a call is made on the mobile phone 20 while holding the hug 12 as shown in FIG. 2 using the call assisting device 10 as shown in FIG. 1, the blood (even in saliva) A decrease in cortisol was confirmed. Cortisol is a hormone involved in stress, and a decrease in cortisol means a decrease in stress. Therefore, when a call is made with the mobile phone 20 while hugging the hug 12, a healing effect due to stress relaxation can be expected.

  In addition to the healing effect confirmed in the above-described experiment, in addition to the medical knowledge that when the CT fiber receptive field of the arm is stimulated, it is comfortably felt in this embodiment that the belt-like portions forming the arm passage portions 24a and 24b are formed. The inner surface of the cloth touches the skin on the dorsal side of the forearm (skin on the same side as the back of the hand) to stimulate it. A further healing effect can be expected by stimulating the receptive field of the CT fibers of the arm.

  It should be noted that the healing effect by stimulating the CT fiber receptive field is prominent particularly when the skin on the back side of the forearm is stimulated. It only needs to irritate the skin. However, the skin on the forearm palm side (the same side as the palm) may be simultaneously stimulated. In the embodiment, the jacket 14 can stimulate the skin on the forearm palm side.

  For a call on the mobile phone 20, the user places the head 12a of the hug 12 on the user's head with the right arm hand inserted through the arm passage portion 24a so that the mobile phone 20 and his / her ear are as close as possible. Press toward. Then, since the position of the head 12a, that is, the mobile phone 20, is stably held, the telephone call can be stably performed, and the head 12a of the hug 12 comes into contact with the user's cheek. Healing can be given to the user.

  FIG. 3 shows another embodiment of the call assistance device 10, which is different from the embodiment shown in FIG. 1 in the following points. The same or similar parts are denoted by the same or similar reference numerals, and redundant description is omitted.

In the embodiment of FIG. 1, two separate arm passage portions 24 a and 24 b are formed on the back surface of the hug 12. On the other hand, in the embodiment shown in FIG. 3, the hugging body 12 sews a wide belt-like cloth connected from the body portion 12b to the foot portion 12d on the back surface to the outer cover 14, so that both arms of the user are One arm passage portion 24 to be inserted is formed. Both side ends of the wide belt-like shape are formed as arm doorways 24ca. The clearance between the cloth forming the arm passage portion 24 and the outer jacket 14 is the same as the clearance between the arm passage portions 24a and 24b in FIG. 1 embodiment (effectively stimulates the skin of the forearm). , Not too big.

  When the call assisting device 10 shown in FIG. 3 is used, the user places the left and right arms into the arm passing portion 24 as shown in FIG. 4 with the mobile phone 20 in a call state in the pocket 18. Insert so that the hand part is exposed. Also in the case of FIG. 4, the position of the user's arm is almost the same as in FIG. 2, and the head 12 a of the hug 12 is pushed toward the head with the right hand.

  Even in the case of FIG. 4, the front side of the hug 12 is in close contact with the front of the user, and both arms are turned to the back of the hug 12. The user gets a sense of security when the hug is in close contact with his / her body, thereby realizing healing. At the same time, the skin on the back side of the forearm (the side where the hair grows) of both arms turned to the back of the hug 12 contacts the inner surface of the wide cloth forming the arm passage portion 24 and stimulates from there. By receiving, the user can feel further healing.

  FIG. 5 shows another embodiment of the call assistance device 10, which is different from the embodiment shown in FIG. 1 in the following points. The same or similar parts are denoted by the same or similar reference numerals, and redundant description is omitted.

  In the embodiment of FIG. 1, two separate arm passage portions 24 a and 24 b are formed on the back surface of the hug 12. On the other hand, in the embodiment shown in FIG. 5, one arm passage portion 24 is formed by putting another garment having a shape such as a T-shirt on the outer side of the outer cover 14 of the hug 12. I have to. In this case, the hem and neck of the T-shirt are the arm doorway 24da. Then, the user's arm can be inserted into the gap between the T-shirt and the outer jacket 14 through the entrance / exit 24da to expose the hand. However, the gap between the T-shirt and the jacket 14 is not so large for the same reason (stimulates the skin of the forearm) as the gap between the arm passage portions 24a and 24b in the embodiment of FIG. Also, the hem of the T-shirt is stopped up to the top of the foot 12d. If the hem is too low, it may be difficult for the user to pass the arm through the gap of the arm passage portion 24.

  When the call assisting device 10 shown in FIG. 5 is used, the user forms the left and right arms with T-shirts from the entrance / exit 24da as shown in FIG. 6 with the mobile phone 20 in a call state in the pocket 18. The arm portion is inserted into the arm passage portion 24 and the hand portion is exposed from the entrance / exit 24da. Also in the case of FIG. 6, the position of the user's arm is almost the same as in FIG. 2, and the head 12a of the hug 12 can be pushed toward his / her head with the right hand.

  Even in the case of FIG. 6, the user can feel the healing by stimulation of the skin on the back side of the forearm that is turned to the back of the hugging body 12 in addition to the healing due to the hugging body closely contacting the body.

  FIG. 7 shows another embodiment of the call assistance device 10. In this embodiment, heaters 26a and 26b (for example, silicon rubber heaters) are provided at positions where the user's arm holding the hug 12 passes (corresponding to the positions of the arm passage portions 24a and 24b in the embodiment of FIG. 1). Embed. Specifically, at that position, a silicon rubber heater is attached or sewn to the inner surface of the jacket 14 (FIG. 1D), and the built-in object 16 is built in that state. At that time, if necessary, a battery (not shown) is also incorporated so that the silicon rubber heater can be turned on / off from the outside.

  In this embodiment, since the arms of the user holding the hug 12 can be warmed by the heaters 26a and 26b, a healing effect by heating can be further expected.

  However, as a heater, not only a surface heater is incorporated in a specific part, but a heater wire may be stretched around the entire hug 12.

  FIG. 8 shows another embodiment of the call assistance device 10. In this embodiment, another pocket 28 is provided in the head 12 a of the hug 12, and an odor bag 30 that generates an appropriate odor is stored in the pocket 28.

  In this embodiment, the scent from the odor bag 30 can provide the user with a further healing effect, as in aromatherapy, for example.

  However, the means for generating an odor from the hug 12 is not limited to the odor bag 30 of the embodiment, and any means capable of generating an odor from the hug 12 can be used.

  FIG. 9 shows another embodiment of the call assistance device 10. In this embodiment, light emitters 32a and 32b such as LEDs are embedded in the position where the user's arm holding the hug 12 passes (corresponding to the position of the arm passage portions 24a and 24b in the embodiment of FIG. 1). Specifically, at that position, the light emitters 32a and 32b are pasted or sewn on the inner surface of the jacket 14 (FIG. 1D), and the built-in object 16 is built in that state. At that time, if necessary, a battery (not shown) is also incorporated so that the light emitters 32a and 32b can be turned on / off from the outside.

  In this embodiment, since the light emitters 32a and 32b emit light, the user can be instructed where the arm should be turned in the hug 12, so that the hug 12 can be securely adhered to the user's body. Can do. Therefore, the healing effect by adhesion can be exhibited reliably.

  In the embodiment of FIG. 10, the call assisting device 10 has a hull having a jacket 14 made of cloth or the like and a built-in object 16 such as a foamed resin bead accommodated therein, as in the embodiment of FIG. A pocket 18 for accommodating the mobile phone 20 is formed on the side surface of the head 12 a of the hug 12 including the body 12. Further, in this embodiment, a balloon 38 having an oval cross section is accommodated in the built-in object 16 across the body 12b and the foot 12d of the hug 12. The balloon 38 is appropriately inflated by the air injected therein, and a pressure sensor 40 is provided on the outer surface of the balloon 38. The magnitude of the pressure detected by the pressure sensor 40 is transmitted to the built-in computer 42. The pressure sensor 40 and the power source for the computer 42 are not shown.

  When using the call assistance device 10 of the embodiment of FIG. 10, for example, as shown in FIG. 2, when the user is correctly holding the hug, the magnitude of the pressure detected by the pressure sensor 40 exceeds the threshold. On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 11, for example, when the holding is not correct such as holding only the arm portion 12 c of the hug 12, an appropriate pressure is not applied to the pressure sensor 40. When the detected pressure of the pressure sensor 40 is equal to or lower than the threshold value, the computer 42 estimates that the hugging body 12 is not correctly hugged, and uses an appropriate notification means (not shown) such as sound or light to determine that. Watch out for users. The user who notices the attention can correctly hug the hug 12. Therefore, it is possible to surely exert the healing effect by bringing the hug 12 into close contact with the user, which is difficult to obtain in the state shown in FIG.

  The communication assisting apparatus 10 of the embodiment shown in FIG. 12 uses an air compressor 44 to make the balloon 38 have an appropriate air pressure. That is, the output tube from the air compressor 44 is connected to the balloon 38 via the pressure regulating valve 46. When the hug 12, that is, the balloon 38 is too soft, air is injected into the balloon 38 by the air compressor 44, and when it is too hard, the air inside the balloon 38 is released from the pressure regulating valve 46.

According to this embodiment, attention is paid to the fact that the hardness (softness) of the embedding body 12 that feels healing varies depending on the user, and the air compressor 44 and the pressure regulating valve 46 allow the embedding body to have an optimal hardness for an individual user. (Softness).

  However, in the embodiment of FIG. 12, the air compressor 44 can also be provided in the jacket 14 of the hug 12.

  Further, in the embodiment of FIG. 12, it has been described that the internal pressure of the balloon 38 is automatically controlled using the air compressor 44 and the pressure regulating valve 46. However, in addition to such automatic control, the internal pressure of the balloon 38 can be increased or decreased by the user's intention. In that case, for example, in the embodiment of FIG. 12, when an appropriate operation switch (not shown) is provided outside the hug 12 and the user feels the necessity by operating the operation switch, the balloon 38 can be inflated or deflated.

  In the embodiment shown in FIGS. 10 and 12, when the user can hold the hug 12 with an appropriate pressure, the computer 42 may output a sound effect that informs the user. The sound effect may cause the user to feel as if he is holding a living creature, and the healing effect may be further increased.
