Title (EN) COUPLING MODULE OF A MODULAR IMPLANTABLE MEDICAL DEVICE
(FR) MODULE DE COUPLAGE D'UN DISPOSITIF MEDICAL IMPLANTABLE
Abstract:
(EN) In an implantable medical device (101, 201, 401A-F, 501, 601, 701, 801, 901) having individual modules (103-105, 210-212, 410-412, 510-512, 610-611, 711-713, 811-812, 911-912, 1110-1111, 1201-1202), a coupling module (521, 612, 721, 722, 821, 921, 1001, 1101, 1222) couples the modules to one another. The coupling module supports electrical and/or mechanical coupling of the modules. The coupling module may assume a variety of shapes or configurations. The various embodiments of the coupling module may offer the modules varying degrees of freedom of movement relative to one another.
(FR) Selon l'invention, dans un dispositif médical implantable (101, 201, 401A-F, 501, 601, 701, 801, 901) comprenant des modules individuels (103-105, 210-212, 410-412, 510-512, 610-611, 711-713, 811-812, 911-912, 1110-1111, 1201-1202), un module de couplage (521, 612, 721, 722, 821, 921, 1001, 1101, 1222) couple les modules les uns aux autres. Ce module de couplage permet un couplage électrique et/ou mécanique des modules. Il peut présenter une pluralité de formes ou de configurations. Les divers modes de réalisation dudit module de couplage offrent aux modules des degrés variables de liberté de mouvement les uns par rapport aux autres.
