Title (EN) FLEXIBLE VERTEBRAL LINKING DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE LIAISON VERTEBRALE SOUPLE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention concerns a flexible intervertebral linking device (1) consisting of two sets of means. A first set of means (11) consisting of rigid means (110, 112, 114, 116) preferably made of biocompatible metallic materials providing the device with good mechanical resistance by integral load transmission without deformation. A second set of means (12) consisting of flexible or damping means (121 and 122) made of biocompatible viscoelastic materials, admitting repeated elastic deformations, the combination of said two sets of means providing it with both resistance and mechanical stress damping whereto it is subjected, to compensate for any deficiency of flexible anatomical links of the human body.
(FR) L'invention est un dispositif de liaison intervertébrale souple (1) constitué de deux ensembles de moyens: Un premier ensemble de moyens (11) composé de moyens rigides(110,112,114,116) fabriqués en matériau de préférence métalliques et biocompatibles assurant une bonne tenue mécanique du dispositif en transmettant intégralement les efforts sans se déformer. Un deuxième ensemble de moyens (12) formé de moyens souples ou amortissant (121 et 122) fabriqués en matériaux viscoélastiques biocompatibles, acceptant les déformations élastiques répétées, la combinaison de ces deux ensembles de moyens permettant de résister en même temps que d'amortir les sollicitations mécaniques auquel il sera soumis, pour palier à toute déficience des liaisons souples anatomiques du corps humain.
