Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR MOVING AND STRETCHING PLASTIC TISSUE
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE POUR DEPLACER ET ETIRER UN TISSU PLASTIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A system and method of moving and stretching plastic tissue using dynamic force. A preferably non−reactive force applying component is adjustably attachable to one or more tissue attachment structure for securing the force applying component to the plastic tissue, providing a self adjusting system that is capable of exerting relatively constant tension over a certain distance.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système et un procédé pour déplacer et étirer un tissu plastique par la force dynamique. Un composant appliquant une force de préférence non réactive peut être attaché, de façon ajustable, à une ou plusieurs structures d'attache de tissu, de sorte que ce composant d'application de force soit solidement fixé au tissu plastique. On obtient ainsi un système auto-ajustable capable d'exercer une tension relativement constante sur une certaine distance.
