Abstract: front page image
(EN)An inhaler device (20) for administration of a dry powder (66) to a patient includes a package (22) containing a dose of the dry powder and a magnetic field generator (36, 38), which produces a magnetic field in a vicinity of the package. The magnetic field causes motion of particles of the powder so as to deaggregate the powder in the package, whereby the powder is inhaled by the patient. Preferably, the package includes walls (23, 25) made of a flexible material, which vibrate under the influence of the magnetic field so as to impart the motion to the particles.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif (20) d'inhalation servant à administrer une poudre sèche (66) à un patient. Le dispositif comprend un conditionnement (22) contenant une dose de la poudre sèche, et un générateur (36, 38) de champ magnétique qui produit un champ magnétique à proximité du conditionnement. Le champ magnétique provoque un déplacement des particules de poudre qui désagrège la poudre dans le conditionnement ; la poudre est ensuite inhalée par le patient. De préférence, le conditionnement comprend des parois (23, 25) faites d'une matière flexible, qui vibrent sous l'action du champ magnétique de manière à imprimer ce mouvement aux particules.
