(EN) IMPLANTABLE DEVICE FOR PROSTHESIS MONITORING
(FR) DISPOSITIF IMPLANTABLE DE SURVEILLANCE DE PROTHÈSE
Abstract
(EN) The present invention relates to an implantable device, suitable to detect and to monitor infectious processes, in particular at a prosthesis. The device comprises sensor means, apt to detect an index parameter of an infectious process and a control unit connected thereto, the latter being equipped with a storage area for storing said index parameter. The device further comprises an antenna, connected to the control unit and configured to allow a bidirectional electromagnetic communication with a remote reader of the device. In particular the device is encapsulated by a casing made of elastomeric material.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif implantable, convenant à la détection et à la surveillance de processus infectieux, en particulier au niveau d’une prothèse. Le dispositif comprend un moyen capteur, apte à détecter un paramètre d’indice d’un processus infectieux et une unité de commande connectée à ce dernier, laquelle unité de commande comporte une zone de stockage pour stocker ledit paramètre d’indice. Le dispositif comprend en outre une antenne, connectée à l’unité de commande et configurée pour permettre une communication électromagnétique bidirectionnelle avec un lecteur à distance du dispositif. Plus précisément, le dispositif est encapsulé par un boîtier constitué d’un matériau élastomère.
