Title
(EN) Electro-stimulation device
Abstract
(EN)

An electro-stimulation device where the supplementary motor area, premotor area and/or subthalamic nucleus is stimulated extracranially via intrinsic auricular muscles and the stimulation intensity of the supplementary motor area, premotor area and/or subthalamic nucleus is changed with the intensity of the tremors. The electro-stimulation device comprises; at least two primary electrodes which enables sending and receiving electric signals, at least one control unit which produces stimulating signals for reducing involuntary resting activities such as tremors and enables these signals to be sent to/received from primary electrodes.
