Title (EN) EFFICIENTLY DELIVERING ACOUSTIC STIMULATION ENERGY TO TISSUE
(FR) FOURNITURE EFFICACE D'ENERGIE DE STIMULATION ACOUSTIQUE A UN TISSU
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A system for delivering an electrical stimulation pulse to tissue comprises a controller-transmitter and a receiver-stimulator. The controller-transmitter includes circuitry having an energy storage capacitor. The capacitance of the energy storage capacitor is adjusted to improve the efficiency of energy delivered from the receiver-stimulator to tissue by modifying the geometry of an acoustic drive burst from the controller-transmitter.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système pour fournir une impulsion de stimulation électrique à un tissu, ce système comprenant un contrôleur-émetteur et un récepteur-stimulateur. Le contrôleur-émetteur comporte des circuits dotés d'un condensateur de stockage d'énergie à capacitance est adaptée pour améliorer l'efficacité de l'énergie fournie par le récepteur-stimulateur au tissu par modification de la géométrie d'une salve d'attaque acoustique émise par le contrôleur-émetteur.
