Title: DEVICE FOR TACTILE STIMULATION
Abstract:
A device for applying a tactile stimulus, comprising a finger sleeve with one or more raised elements on its outer surface, wherein there is at least one raised element or part thereof in that region of the sleeve defined by the first 15 % of its overall length measured from its distal end, and wherein the raised element(s) are arranged in a loop surrounding a blank region of the sleeve which carries no raised elements. The raised element(s) may define a fluid retaining region on the sleeve surface. A region of the sleeve may have a greater flexibility than that of the rest of the sleeve, so as to provide variability in circumference. The device is of particular use in the treatment of female orgasmic disorders and may be used to apply a fluid substance as well as a tactile stimulus.
