Title
(EN) METHOD AND DEVICE TO MODIFY THE EXCITABILITY OF THE NEURAL NETWORKS
(FR) PROCEDE ET DISPOSITIF PERMETTANT DE MODIFIER L'EXCITABILITE DES RESEAUX DE NEURONES
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to a method to modify the excitability of the neuronal networks, comprising the application of vibration inducing muscular lengthening-shortening sequences with frequencies within the range of 1 and 300 Hz, with peak to peak motion amplitude included within the range from 1$g(m) and the maximum physiological length of the muscle, with an application time between 1 and 60 minutes. The invention also relates to the apparatus for performing the above mentioned method.
(FR)
L'invention a trait à un procédé permettant de modifier l'excitabilité des réseaux de neurones et consistant à appliquer une vibration sur des fibres musculaires, ce qui provoque des séries d'allongement et de raccourcissement musculaire, la fréquence de ces vibrations étant comprise entre 1 et 300 Hz, l'amplitude de mouvement crête-à-crête, entre 1$g(m) et la longueur physiologique maximale du muscle, et le temps d'application, entre 1 et 60 minutes. Cette invention concerne également l'appareil permettant de mettre en oeuvre le procédé susmentionné.
