Title (EN) FITTING AND TUNING CHEST COMPRESSION DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF S'AJUSTANT SUR LA POITRINE POUR LA COMPRIMER
Abstract:
(EN) Persons having respiratory diseases often have treatment programs including a pummeling of the thoracic cavity for the purpose of aiding respiration. A vest (16) as a part of an alternating compression machine (104) is used to eliminate the need for trained physical therapists and rather provide for mechanical thumping. A fitting routine (112) for the vest (16) is provided. A routine (114) for identifying optimal operating frequencies for the machine (104) is also provided, along with an algorithm (156) for selecting appropriate frequencies.
(FR) Les personnes souffrant de maladies respiratoires ont souvent de s programmes de traitement comprenant une compression de la cavité thoracique dans le but de faciliter la respiration. Un gilet (16) faisant partie d'une machine à compression alternée (104) est utilisé pour ne pas être obligé de recourir à des thérapeutes dans le domaine de la kinésithérapie et il effectue un pompage mécanique. Un programme d'ajustement (112) pour le gilet (16) est présenté. Est également prévu un programme (114) pour identifier les fréquences de fonctionnement optimales pour la machine (104), ainsi qu'un algorithme pour choisir les fréquences appropriées.
