[0010] In the following description, the present invention will be explained with reference to embodiments thereof. It shall be noted that these embodiments are not intended to limit the present invention to any specific environment, applications or particular implementations described in these embodiments. Therefore, description of these embodiments is only for purpose of illustration rather than to limit the present invention, and the scope of this application shall be governed by the claims. It should be appreciated that, in the following embodiments and the attached drawings, elements unrelated to the present invention are omitted from depiction; and dimensional relationships among individual elements in the attached drawings are provided only for ease of understanding, but not to limit the actual scale. Except for the particular explanation, identical (or similar) elements may correspond to the identical (or similar) elements. Furthermore, terms "first", "second" and "third" used in the present specification are used to distinguish the order relation between the identical objects.

[0011] FIG. 1 is a schematic view of a wireless physical stimulation system 1 of the first embodiment of the present invention. The content shown in the FIG.1 is merely used to describe the embodiment of the present invention rather than limit the present invention. Please refer to FIG.1, the wireless physical stimulation system 1 basically comprises an electronic device 11, at least one sensor 13, and at least one physical stimulation device 15. The electronic device 11 comprises a transceiver 111, a processor 113 and a storage 115, wherein the processor 113 is electrically connected to the transceiver 111 and the storage 115.

[0012] The at least one sensor 13 and the at least one physical stimulation device 15 are disposed on a human body and are wirelessly connected to the transceiver 111. For example, as shown in FIG. 1, a sensor 13 and a physical stimulation device 15 may be disposed on the back of the person on the left, or multiple sensors 13 and multiple physical stimulation devices 15 may be disposed on the thigh, calf, arm, and waist of the person on the right. It shall be noted that the content of the embodiment is not used to limit the number and positions of the sensors 13 and the physical stimulation devices 15 of the present invention.

[0013] Furthermore, each circle in FIG. 1 comprises the at least one sensor 13 and the at least one physical stimulation device 15. The at least one sensor 13 and the at least one physical stimulation device 15 may be arranged next to each other, be integrated in an element, or be independent elements. Each sensor 13 is configured to sense a sensing signal S1.

[0014] The processor 113 receives the at least one sensing signal S1 from the at least one sensor 13 via transceiver 111. The processor 113 is configured to generate first body condition information B1 on the basis of a body condition identifying model M1 and according to the least one first sensing signal S1. Then, the processor 113 is configured to generate first feedback plan information C1 on the basis of a first feedback model F1 and according to the first body condition information B1. Next, the processor 113 is configured to control the at least one physical stimulation device 15 according to the first feedback plan information C1 to generate the corresponding physical stimulation.

[0015] It shall be noted that the electronic device 11 may be electronic product, such as a mobile device, a smart device, or a tablet. The transceiver 111 may comprise various internal connection interfaces (e.g., flat cables of various functions) so that multiple elements disposed in a same apparatus connect and transmit data with each other. In some embodiments, the transceiver 111 may also comprise various input/output interfaces so that multiple elements disposed in different apparatuses connect and transmit data with each other. The input/output interfaces may comprise various wireless communication interfaces (which are for example but not limited to: a Bluetooth interface, a Wi-Fi interface, a mobile communication network interface or the like).

[0016] Moreover, both of the sensor 13 and the physical stimulation device 15 comprise microcontroller and transceiver to transmit, receive and process relative signals and commands. The sensor 13 and the physical stimulation device 15 are equipped with independent power source for wireless operation.

[0017] In one or some implementations, the physical stimulation device 15 may be one or both of a wireless thermotherapy device and a wireless electrotherapy device. In some implementations, the physical stimulation device 15 may be a low energy laser light emitting diode (LED) radiating device or a magnetic field excitation device. The processor 113 controls one of the wireless thermotherapy device and the wireless electrotherapy device according to the first feedback plan information C1. In addition, in one or some implementations, the first feedback plan information C1 may include a thermal stimulation plan and an electric stimulation plan.

[0018] It shall be noted that, the first feedback plan information C1 includes control parameters which the electronic device 11 transmits to the physical stimulation device 15. For example, if the physical stimulation device 15 is a thermal stimulation device, the control parameters may include duration time, temperature, etc. For another example, if the physical stimulation device 15 is an electric stimulation device, the control parameters may include duration time, intensity, frequency, waveform, etc. However, the present invention is not limited by the aforesaid examples.

[0019] In one or some implementations, the body condition identifying model M1 and the first feedback model F1 are stored in the storage 115 in advance. The processor 113 may access the data stored by the storage 115. The establishment of the body condition identifying model M1 may be based on measurement data, laboratory data, etc. The establishment of the first feedback model F1 may be based on a fatigue position, a fatigue level, a type of physical stimulation, etc. In some implementations, the first feedback model may be established by an electronic apparatus comprising an input unit, an output unit, a memory unit, a logic processing and controlling unit. The input unit may receive sensing signals, and the output unit may generate different physical stimulation modes. The memory unit may memorize the logic processing results which are set by a user and used in the last time. The logic processing and controlling unit calculates, according to the changes of input signals and the data stored by the memory, a new physical stimulation method to control the output unit.

[0020] In one or some implementations, the electronic device 11 further comprises an input unit (not shown), which is electrically connected to the processor 113. The input unit is configured to receive and transmit a user command to the processor 113. Then, the processor 113 adjusts the physical stimulation device 15 according to the user command. In other words, a user may actively adjust the plan and intensity of the physical stimulation via the input unit.

[0021] FIG. 2 is a schematic view of a wireless physical stimulation system 2 of the second embodiment of the present invention. The wireless physical stimulation system 2 of the second embodiment is an extension of the wireless physical stimulation system 1 of the first embodiment. The elements with the identical symbols have similar functions; thus, the identical content is not repeatedly described. The differences are detailed merely in the following.

[0022] In the second embodiment, after the processor 113 transmits the first feedback plan information C1 to the physical stimulation device 15, the at least one sensor 13 further detects at least one second sensing signal S2. The processor 113 is further configured to receive the at least one second sensing signal S2 from the at least one sensor 13. In other words, after the electronic device 21 executes the physical stimulation, the electronic device 21 detects the reaction condition of the body muscle in response to the physical stimulation.

[0023] Afterwards, the processor 113 is further configured to establish a second feedback model F2 according to the at least one second sensing signal S2 and the first feedback model F1. The processor 113 is further configured to generate second body condition information B2 on basis of the body condition identifying model M1 and according to the least one second sensing signal S2. Then, the processor 113 is further configured to generate second feedback plan information C2 on the basis of the second feedback model F2 and according to the second body condition information B2. Then, the processor 113 is further configured to control the at least one physical stimulation device 15 according to the second feedback plan information C2.

[0024] In other words, in the second embodiment, after the wireless physical stimulation system 2 performs the physical stimulation, the wireless physical stimulation system 2 further uses the second sensing S2 to adjust the first feedback model F1 into the second feedback model F2 as the use of physical stimulation plan for a specific user. Therefore, wireless physical stimulation system 2 may generate the second body condition information C2 according to the modified the second feedback model F2 to provide more effective physical stimulation.

[0025] In one or some implementations, the processor 113 may stores the second feedback model F2 in the storage 115 so that the processor 113 further uses or modifies it later. Moreover, in one or some implementations, the second sensing signal S2 includes an electromyogram (EMG) signal.

[0026] FIG. 3 is a schematic view of a wireless physical stimulation system 3 of the third embodiment of the present invention. The wireless physical stimulation system 3 of the second embodiment is an extension of the wireless physical stimulation system 1 of the first embodiment. The elements with the identical symbols have similar functions; thus, the identical content is not repeatedly described. The differences are detailed merely in the following.

[0027] In the third embodiment, the electronic device 31 further comprises an input unit 117, which is electrically connected to the processor 113. The input unit 117 is configured to receive a user command U1 inputted by a user. The processor 113 is further configured to establish a third feedback model F3 according to the user command U1 and the first feedback model F1. In other words, the user can adjust the first feedback model F1 according to the feelings in response to the physical stimulation.

[0028] On the other hand, the at least one sensor 13 is further configured to detect at least one third sensing signal S3 and transmit the at least one third sensing signal S3 to the processor 113 of the electronic device 31. The processor 113 is further configured to generate third body condition information B3 on the basis of the body condition identifying model M1 and according to the at least one third sensing signal S3. Next, the processor 113 is further configured to generate third feedback plan information C3 on the basis of the third feedback model F3 and according to the third body condition information B3. Then, the processor 113 is further configured to control the at least one physical stimulation device 15 according to the third feedback plan information C3.

[0029] In other words, in the third embodiment, after the wireless physical stimulation system 3 controls the physical stimulation device 15 according to the third feedback plan information C3 to perform the physical stimulation to a user, the user may further use the user command U1 and the first feedback model F1 to establish the third feedback model F3 which satisfies personal demand, for example, recording the best physical stimulation control plan used by a user the most often and performing customized adjustments according to the user command. Therefore, the wireless physical stimulation system 3 may generate the third feedback plan information C3 according to the third feedback model F3 to provide the physical stimulation which matches the user's expectation more.

[0030] In one or some implementations, processor 113 may stores the third feedback model F3 in the storage 115 so that the processor 113 further uses or modifies it later. Moreover, in one or some implementations, the third sensing signal S3 includes an electromyogram (EMG) signal.

[0031] FIG. 4 is a schematic view of a wireless physical stimulation system 4 of the fourth embodiment of the present invention. The wireless physical stimulation system 4 of the fourth embodiment is an extension of the wireless physical stimulation system 1 of the first embodiment. The elements with the identical symbols have similar functions; thus, the identical content is not repeatedly described. The differences are detailed merely in the following.

[0032] Specifically, in the fourth embodiment, the processor 113 is further configure to generate to generate a detection period signal PI and a feedback period signal P2, wherein the detection period signal PI and the feedback period signal P2 do not overlap in the operation period with each other. The processor 113 transmits the detection period signal PI via the transceiver 111 to the at least one sensor 13 to control the detection period of the at least one sensor 13. On the other hand, processor 113 transmits the feedback period signal P2 via the transceiver 111 to the at least one physical stimulation device 15 to control the feedback period of the at least one physical stimulation device 15. In other words, the wireless physical stimulation system 4 separates the operation durations of the sensor and the physical stimulation device to avoid measuring the incorrect measurement signals.

[0033] FIG. 5A is a schematic view of a wireless physical stimulation system 5 of the fifth embodiment of the present invention. The wireless physical stimulation system 5 of the fifth embodiment is an extension of the wireless physical stimulation system 1 of the first embodiment. The elements with the identical symbols have similar functions; thus, the identical content is not repeatedly described. The differences are detailed merely in the following.

[0034] Specifically, in the fifth embodiment, the at least one sensor 13 includes an electromyogram (EMG) sensor 13a, and the electromyogram sensor 13a is configured to detect an electromyogram signal S1a. Therefore, the at least one sensing signal S1 includes at least one electromyogram signal S1a.

[0035] The body condition identifying model M1 further comprises a fatigue characteristic curve VI and a characteristic threshold T1. The fatigue characteristic curve VI is established by its characteristic data obtained by time-domain analysis and frequency-domain analysis to the at least one electromyogram signal S1a at a data training stage by the wireless physical stimulation system 5. The wireless physical stimulation system 5 further determines the characteristic threshold T1 according to the characteristic data.

[0036] On the other hand, each of muscle fatigue condition information E1 is recorded in the first body condition information B1. Each set of the fatigue characteristic curves VI and the characteristic threshold T1 corresponds to one the muscle fatigue condition information E1. Therefore, the processor 113 is further configured to generate the muscle fatigue condition information E1 of the first body condition information B1 on the basis of the fatigue characteristic curve VI and the characteristic threshold T1 of the body condition identifying model M1 and according to the at least one EMG signal S1a. In other words, in the fifth embodiment, the body condition identifying model M1 is further configured to record EMG signals of different muscle fatigue conditions, and the muscle fatigue conditions corresponding to the EMG signals are recorded in the first body condition information B1.

[0037] Please refer to FIG. 5B and FIG. 5C for an example. FIG. 5B depicts an electromyogram measurement figure. FIG. 5C depicts a schematic view of electromyogram frequency versus electromyogram intensity. In order to establish body condition identifying model, the electronic device 11 analyzes EMG signals of normal muscle and fatigue muscle (shown in FIG. 5B) of a particular human part at a data training stage. Next, the electronic device 11 analyzes the EMG signals in a time-domain and a frequency-domain to establish the corresponding characteristic curve (shown in FIG. 5C). Since the normal muscle EMG signal and the fatigue muscle signal are different in EMG frequency characteristic and EMG intensity characteristic, the electronic device 11 may determine the characteristic threshold of the corresponding characteristic curve. In other words, different types of muscle fatigue conditions have different characteristic curves, and the electronic device 11 may further record the muscle fatigue condition information in the body condition information.

[0038] It shall be noted that the aforesaid content is merely used for the explanation of establishing body condition identifying model according to the fatigue characteristic curve and the characteristic threshold and the explanation of generating muscle fatigue condition information according to the fatigue characteristic curve and the characteristic threshold, but it is not used to limit the present invention. As to different types of muscle fatigue conditions, different characteristics may be determined according to EMG signals and be set as characteristic thresholds, and people skilled in the art may achieve or change the features according to the aforesaid content; therefore, here is no need of further description.

[0039] FIG. 6 is a schematic view of a wireless physical stimulation system 6 of the sixth embodiment of the present invention. The wireless physical stimulation system 6 of the second embodiment is an extension of the wireless physical stimulation system 1 of the first embodiment. The elements with the identical symbols have similar functions; thus, the identical content is not repeatedly described. The differences are detailed merely in the following.

[0040] Specifically, the sensor 13 comprises a motion sensor 13b, and the motion sensor 13b is configured to detect a motion signal S1b. Therefore, the at least one sensing signal S1 includes at least one motion signal S1b.

[0041] The body condition identifying model M1 further comprises a motion posture template W1 and a characteristic threshold X1. The motion posture template W1 is established by its characteristic data obtained by analyzing the at least one motion signal S1b at a data training stage by the wireless physical stimulation system 6. The wireless physical stimulation system 6 further determines the characteristic threshold X1 according to the characteristic data.

[0042] On the other hand, each muscle fatigue condition information E2 is recorded in the first body condition information B1. Each set of the motion posture template W1 and the characteristic threshold X1 corresponds to the muscle fatigue condition information E2. In other words, in the sixth embodiment, the body condition identifying model M1 is further configured to record different motion signals corresponding to different muscle fatigue conditions, and the muscle fatigue condition information E2 corresponding to the muscle fatigue conditions are recorded in the first body condition information B1.

[0043] For example, at a data training stage, electronic device 11 may record a specific motion according to a motion signal, for example, lifting a stuff, bending, or crouching, to establish the motion posture template. The electronic device 11 may record how many times, duration, frequency, amplitude, etc., to determine the characteristic threshold. Since different muscle fatigues corresponds to different motions, the electronic 11 may establish the relation therebetween. Therefore, the electronic device 11 may determine the muscle fatigue condition information of the first body condition information by analyzing motions and the characteristics of motions.

[0044] It shall be noted that the aforesaid content is merely used for the explanation of establishing body condition identifying model according to the motion posture template and the characteristic threshold and the explanation of generating muscle fatigue condition information according to the motion posture template and the characteristic threshold, but it is not used to limit the present invention. As to different types of muscle fatigue conditions, different characteristics may be determined according to motion signals and be set as characteristic thresholds, and people skilled in the art may achieve or change the features according to the aforesaid content.

[0046] In the seventh embodiment, the transceiver 111 of the electronic device 71 is connected to a cloud computing system 73. More specifically, the functions of processor 113 and the storage 115 are replaced with the cloud computing system 73. The cloud computing system is equipped with a transceiver 731, a processor 733, and a storage 735. The storage 735 is configure to store the body condition identifying model M1 and first feedback model F1.

[0047] More specifically, after the at least one sensor 13 detects and transmits at least one first sensing signal S1, the electronic device 11 transmits the at least one first sensing signal S1 via the transceiver 111 to the cloud computing system 73 so that the cloud computing system 73 generates first body condition information B1 on the basis of the body condition identifying model M1 and according to the at least one first sensing signal S1 and generates first feedback plan information C1 on the basis of a first feedback model F1 and according to the first body condition information B1. Afterwards, the electronic device 71 receives the first feedback plan information C1 from the cloud computing system 73 and transmits the first feedback plan information C1 to the at least one physical stimulation device 15 to control the at least one physical stimulation device 15.

[0048] In other words, in the wireless physical stimulation system 7, the electronic device 11 is merely used to transmit the relevant measurement signals, control signals, etc. The operations of the at least one sensor 13 and the at least one physical stimulation device 15 is controlled by the cloud computing system 73.
