Title
(EN) LIGHT EMITTING MEANS FOR EXTERNAL MEDICAL TREATMENT WITH LIGHT
(FR) MOYENS D'EMISSION DE LUMIERE POUR TRAITEMENT MEDICAL EXTERNE UTILISANT DE LA LUMIERE
Abstract
(EN)
Apparatus for external medical treatment with the aid of light, said apparatus comprising a light emitting device (1) which is intended to be held against or in the close proximity of a patient's body, and means (8, 9, 10) for driving the light emitting device, wherein said light emitting device includes light emitting diodes or corresponding elements designed to emit monochromatic light, wherein the drive means (8, 9, 10) is designed to control the light emitting device (1) to emit one or more types of monochromatic light over one or more predetermined time periods and to pulsate said emitted light in accordance with a predermined pulse frequency or a series of pulse frequency over said time periods, and wherein said light emitting device (1) includes a casing (15) and a plate (16) that carries said light emitting diodes. The apparatus is characterised by an eccentric arrangement which includes a first part (17) that is fixed relative to said casing (15) and a second part (18) that is connected to said plate (16); and by a spring (21) which functions to prevent rotation of the plate (16); and by an electric motor (22) which functions to drive said eccentric arrangement (17, 18), thereby causing the plate (16) carrying said light emitting diodes (3, 4) to execute an oscillatory movement.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un appareil de traitement médical externe grâce à la lumière, cet appareil comprenant un dispositif d'émission de lumière (1) maintenu contre ou à proximité immédiate du corps du patient et des moyens (8, 9, 10) de commande du dispositif d'émission de lumière. Ce dernier est équipé de diode d'émission de lumière ou d'éléments correspondants adaptés pour émettre une lumière monochrome. Les moyens de commande (8, 9, 10) sont, quant à eux, conçus pour commander le dispositif (1) émettant un ou plusieurs types de lumière monochrome pendant des laps de temps prédéterminés et impulsant cette lumière émise selon la fréquence de pulsion prédéterminée ou une série de fréquences de pulsion sur lesdites périodes. Le dispositif (1) comprend en outre un boîtier (15) et une plaque (16) supportant les diodes. L'appareil faisant l'objet de cette invention est caractérisé par un agencement excentrique comprenant une première partie (17) fixée au boîtier (15) et une seconde partie (18) reliée à ladite plaque (16) ; par un ressort (21) servant à éviter que la plaque ne tourne (16) et par un moteur électrique (22) servant à commander l'agencement excentrique (17, 18), entraînant ainsi la plaque (16) supportant les diodes (3, 4) dans un mouvement oscillatoire.
