Abstract

PURPOSE: A wrist watch type alarm using pulse wave is provided to minimize the unpleasant feeling when alarming a user to remove the chronic fatigue feeling by operating the alarm when the user is physically prepared to get up. CONSTITUTION: A wrist watch type alarm using pulse wave includes a pulse wave measuring part, a pulse wave processing part, and an alarm operating part, wherein the pulse wave measuring part includes a pulse wave sensing part, a pulse wave amplification part, and an A/D converter part, the pulse wave processing part detects a ram stage of sleep in real time for outputting a trigger signal when the ram sleep stage is finished, and the alarm operating part checks whether the trigger signal is generated in 90 minutes from a set time to generate alarm.

Description

맥파를 이용한 손목 시계형 자명종{A wrist alarm-watch using blood volume pressure} Watch-type alarm using the alarm wrist-watch using a pulse wave {A} blood volume pressure

본 발명은 맥파로 부터 수면이 가장 얕은 단계를 체크하여 사용자가 설정한 시각 전 가장 쾌적하게 기상할 수 있는 시점에서 자명종이 울리도록 하는 시스템이다. The present invention is a system so that the alarm sound at the time that it checks the water level from the shallow step to the user and the pulse wave is most comfortable weather a preset time. 이전 많은 연구자들이 수면시에 주기적인 수면 단계가 반복됨을 발견하였다. Many researchers have previously found that regular sleep stages are repeated during sleep. 그 중 1957년에 Dement와 Kleitman에 의해 제안된 수면 단계 구분법이 십 여년 동안의 수백명의 연구자들에 의한 많은 연구결과에 근거하여 유용함이 증명되었다. Based on many studies by Dement and those of hundreds of researchers from the sleep stage gubunbeop over twenty years proposed by Kleitman in 1957 and proved to be useful. 결국 수면 정신생리학회(Association for the Psychophysiological Study of Sleep:APSS)에서 수면 단계의 표준 점수화 시스템(standard scoring system for stages of sleep)으로 채택하게 되었다. Eventually I sleep Mental Physiology Society was adopted as a standard scoring system for sleep stages at (Association for the Psychophysiological Study of Sleep APSS) (standard scoring system for stages of sleep). 이후 별다른 큰 수정 없이 전세계 임상 의사들 및 연구자들이 수면 검사시에 적용하고 있다. Since clinicians around the world without any major modification, and researchers have applied during sleep tests.

기존의 자명종은 사용자의 수면상태에 대한 배려가 전혀 이뤄지지 않고 있다. Existing alarm has not yet occurred at all care about the user's sleep. 즉, 기존의 자명종은 사용자가 설정한 시각에 무조건 울림으로써, 흔히 깊은 수면 상태에서 각성 상태로 강제 전환시켜 사용자에게 불쾌감, 피로감, 짜증감을 유발한다. In other words, the old alarm clock ringing unconditionally by the time set by the user, often forced to switch from a deep sleep to wakefulness causes the user discomfort, fatigue, feeling annoyed.

본 발명에서는 가장 얕은 수면단계에서 자명종을 울리게 하여 사용자가 상쾌하게 기상할 수 있도록 함으로써 기존 자명종의 문제점을 극복한다. The present invention overcomes the problems of conventional alarm by the alarm clock to ring at the most shallow sleep phase so that the user can refresh the weather. 렘수면 바로 다음 단계가 수면이 가장 얕은 단계이며 보통 이 단계에서 편안하고 자연스럽게 잠에서 깨어난다. REM sleep is just the next step is the most shallow steps usually wake up in the comfortable sleep naturally at this stage. 렘수면 단계는 뇌파로부터 추출이 용이하나 뇌파 검출기를 머리에 부착해야하는 번거로움이 있다. REM stage is extracted from the EEG has a hassle it should facilitate one attached to the brain wave detector head. 본 발명에서는 손목시계형 자명종 내에 맥파 검출기를 부착함으로써 사용자가 보통의 손목 시계를 착용하듯이 편안하게 이용할 수 있도록 한다. In the present invention, so that by attaching the pulse wave detector in the wristwatch type alarm the user can comfortably use the wear as a normal wrist watch. 이상의 맥파 검출기가 부착된 손목 시계형 자명종은 맥파로부터 렘수면 단계의 특징들을 추출하여 이를 손목 시계형 자명종에 활용하는 기술이다. Or more pulse wave detector is attached to the wrist watch-type alarm is a technique to take advantage of this by extracting the features of the REM sleep stage pulse wave from the wristwatch type alarm.

도 1은 본 발명에 따른 시스템 구성의 개략적인 다이아그램. 1 is a schematic dia gram of a system configuration according to the present invention.

도 2는 맥파의 처리절차를 나타내는 플로챠트 Figure 2 is a flow chart showing the process procedure of the pulse wave

본 발명은 도면 1과 같이 손목 시계형으로 크게 맥파 측정부와 맥파 처리부, 자명종 작동부로 나뉜다. The present invention is largely divided into a wristwatch type as shown in figure 1, divided parts of the pulse wave measuring unit with a pulse wave processing, an alarm clock function. 맥파 측정부는 맥파 감지부, 맥파 증폭부, A/D 변환부로 구성된다. Pulse wave measurement portion is composed of a pulse wave sensor, a pulse wave amplification unit, A / D conversion. 맥파 감지부는 손목 시계형 타입으로 사용자가 착용하기 편한 형태이다. Pulse wave detection unit is an easy form for users to wear a wristwatch type. 맥파 처리부는 수면 단계 중 렘 수면단계를 실시간 검출하여 렘 수면이 끝난 후 트리거 신호를 출력한다. Pulse wave processor to real-time detect the REM sleep stage during sleep stage and outputs a trigger signal after the end of the REM sleep. 자명종 작동부는 설정된 시각 전 90분 이내에 트리거 신호가 발생했는지를 체크하여 손목시계형 자명종이 울리도록 한다. Alarm operation unit checks whether the set time before the trigger signal is generated within 90 minutes and to this wristwatch alarm sound.

본 발명은 자명종 시계에 설정된 시각이 되기 전 90분 이내에 발생한 렘 수면을 체크하여, 렘 수면이 끝난 후인 가장 얕은 수면단계에서 자명종이 울리도록 함으로써 상쾌하게 잠에서 깨어나도록 유도한다. The present invention is to check the REM sleep occurred within 90 minutes before the time set for the alarm clock, leading to a refreshing wake up from sleep by the alarm to ring at the most shallow sleep phase after the end of REM sleep.

일반적인 자명종은 흔히 깊은 수면 상태에서 각성 상태로 강제 전환시킴으로써 사용자에게 불쾌감, 피로감, 짜증감을 유발하곤 한다. Common alarm is often used to cause the user discomfort, fatigue, feeling annoyed by forced transition to wakefulness from deep sleep. 본 발명은 신체적으로 각성할 준비가 된 상태에서 사용자가 설정한 시간 내에 기상할 수 있도록 한다. The invention makes it possible to gas phase within the time set by the user in a ready to awaken the physical condition. 이는 신체에 부담을 최소화하고 정신적으로는 쾌적한 상태를 유발함으로써 만성적인 피로감을 없애고 생활에 활기를 부여할 수 있다. This eliminates chronic fatigue by reducing the strain on the physical and mental induces a pleasant state can give vitality to life.
