Title (EN) STIMULATION ELECTRODE ARRAY
(FR) RESEAU D'ELECTRODES DE STIMULATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A stimulation electrode array is described. The electrode array can include multiple electrode sets, and can be connected by a single lead to an implantable pulse generator. The implantable pulse generator can drive one set of electrodes to one potential, and another set to a different potential. When implanted in target tissue, the electrodes can stimulate the target tissue while avoiding stimulation of neighboring muscles, organs or nerves.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un réseau d'électrodes de stimulation qui peut comprendre plusieurs ensembles d'électrodes et qui peut être couplé par un unique fil à un générateur d'impulsions implantable. Le générateur d'impulsions implantable peut exciter un ensemble d'électrodes à un potentiel et un autre ensemble d'électrodes à un potentiel différent. Une fois implantées dans le tissu cible, les électrodes peuvent stimuler le tissu cible sans pour autant stimuler les muscles, les organes ou les nerfs situés au voisinage du tissu cible.
