Title (EN) INTRABODY COMMUNICATION FOR A HEARING AID
(FR) COMMUNICATION INTRACORPORELLE DESTINEE A UNE PROTHESE AUDITIVE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A hearing aid system (20) includes one or more acoustic I/O components (30a, 30b) operable to receive an acoustic input and a processing component (30c). These components (30a, 30b, and 30c) are electrically coupled together by a closed electrical circuit including at least one electrical conduction pathway formed by skin of a user. An electrical signal is transmitted between the components (30a, 30b, 30c) with the closed electrical circuit. Communication between the components (30a, 30b, 30c) can be one-way or two-way.
(FR)Ce système de prothèse auditive (20) comprend au moins un composant acoustique d'entrée/sortie (30a, 30b) fonctionnant pour recevoir une entrée acoustique, ainsi qu'un composant de traitement (30c). Ces composants (30a, 30b et 30c) sont couplés électriquement les uns aux autres au moyen d'un circuit électrique fermé comprenant au moins un trajet de conduction électrique formé par la peau de l'utilisateur. Un signal électrique est transmis entre les composants (30a, 30b, 30c) au moyen du circuit électrique fermé, la communication entre les composants (30a, 30b, 30c) pouvant être uni ou bidirectionnelle.
