Title (EN) MICRONEEDLE ARRAY APPLICATOR DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF APPLICATEUR DE MATRICE DE MICRO-AIGUILLES ET PROCEDE D'APPLICATION D'UNE TELLE MATRICE
Abstract:
(EN) An applicator device (20) including a housing (22), an impactor (62) for impacting a microneedle array and accelerating the microneedle array toward the target site, wherein the impactor is capable of moving along an arcuate path to move the microneedle array toward the target site. Also, an applicator device including a housing, a patch applicator pivotally supported by the housing, and a torsion spring. The patch applicator has a retaining portion (40) and a patch contacting portion (70), and the patch contacting portion is capable of moving along a substantially arcuate path between a first position and a second position. The torsion spring is capable of biasing the patch applicator relative to the housing.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif applicateur qui comprend un boîtier, ainsi qu'un impacteur servant à frapper une matrice de micro-aiguilles et à l'accélérer en direction du site cible, l'impacteur pouvant se déplacer le long d'une trajectoire courbe pour déplacer la matrice de micro-aiguilles vers le site cible. L'invention concerne également un dispositif applicateur qui comprend un boîtier, un applicateur de timbre à micro-aiguilles monté dans le boîtier de manière à pouvoir pivoter, ainsi qu'un ressort de torsion. L'applicateur de timbre présente une partie de retenue et une partie de mise en contact du timbre qui peut se déplacer le long d'une trajectoire pratiquement courbe entre une première position et une deuxième position. Le ressort de torsion peut exercer une force de rappel sur l'applicateur de timbre par rapport au boîtier.
