A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11908342B2) discloses a human body simulation device designed to mimic physiological processes. The device includes a heart model, beat pump, blood vessel model, pulsation pump, processor, diaphragm model, and a breathing portion. The processor is programmed to adjust the beat rate of the heart model and the pulsation rate of the blood vessel model based on a prescribed heart rate. Additionally, the device features an input device for setting the heart rate and can operate in two modes - one with constant rates and another with irregular changes based on the heart rate. The inclusion of a pressure measuring sensor and a respiratory organ model further enhances the simulation capabilities, allowing for a more comprehensive physiological representation.

Moreover, the patent also covers a method for controlling the human body simulation device and a computer program stored on a non-transitory medium to execute the simulation process. The method involves simulating heartbeats, pulsated fluid flow in blood vessels, and breathing motions through the diaphragm model. The processor adjusts the beat and pulsation rates according to the prescribed heart rate, with the diaphragm model's motion affecting the heart model. This innovative device offers a sophisticated platform for studying and understanding human physiological responses in a controlled and customizable manner, potentially benefiting medical research, training, and education in the healthcare field. The inclusion of features like pressure measurement, respiratory rate adjustment, and graphical display of heart rate changes further enhances the device's utility and versatility in simulating various physiological scenarios.
