Abstract
(EN)
Bone disorders may be treated by applying a compressive preload and repetitive impacts. The patient may be maintained in a static position and the preload be provided by gravity or compression. The impact load, impact rate, and a number of impacts determined by a physician prior to treatment are chosen to generate electrical signals in the patient's bone such that the majority of energy of the electrical signals lies between 0.1 Hz and 1 kHz, and the peak amplitude values of the electrical signals lie between 15 and 30 Hz.
(FR)
On peut traiter les maladies osseuses en appliquant au patient une précharge compressive et une série d'impulsions. Le patient peut être maintenu dans une position statique et la précharge peut être induite par gravité ou compression. La charge et la vitesse des impulsions, et un nombre d'impulsions déterminé par un médecin avant le traitement sont sélectionnés en vue de générer des signaux électriques dans l'os du patient de sorte que la plus grande partie de l'énergie des signaux électriques se situe entre 0,1 Hz et 1 Hz, et que les valeurs d'intensité maximale des signaux électriques se situent entre 15 et 30 Hz.
