■ Jury comments “Knee electrotherapy band HV-710” Maintaining a healthy body is very important in order to continue a vibrant life in an era of super aging. The purpose of this product is to maintain the strength of the knee to continue daily exercise. For generations who still want to feel younger, a “very” health appliance will feel resistance. This product has a clean and simple design and is easy to incorporate into everyday life. In addition, Velcro tape, which will often touch the skin and clothing, is a smooth type with less pain and damage to the touching area, and consideration is given to making it easy for users to continue using. “Upper arm blood pressure monitor HEM-7340T / 7340 / 7150T / 7150 series” Multifunctionality may make the operability complicated. Evaluation was gathered for the result of delicate and bold efforts to deal with such problems. At first glance, it is a product that seems to have inherited the DNA of the same product series that pursued a simple and easy-to-understand UI, but the increase in information display caused by the addition of functions is reviewed and implemented on a zero basis as a UI design is doing. The actual feeling of use is also good, and it can be greatly expected that the created simple operation will increase blood pressure measurement opportunities and frequency. [Image 2
