Title
(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR INDUCING ELECTRIC FIELD PULSES IN A BODY ORGAN
(FR) SYSTÈMES et procédés pour induire des IMPULSIONS DE champ électrique dans un organe CORPOREL
Abstract
(EN)
Systems and methods for providing controllable pulse parameter magnetic stimulation are described. One aspect is directed to a magnetic stimulation system for inducing approximately rectangular electric field pulses in a body organ, comprising an electrical energy storage device, a stimulating coil, and a switching means for electrically coupling said electrical energy storage device to said stimulating coil to produce current pulses in said stimulating coil which generates, in response to the current pulses, magnetic field pulses that can induce approximately rectangular electric field pulses in the body organ.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés pour effectuer une stimulation magnétique dont les paramètres d'impulsions peuvent être contrôlés. Un aspect de l'invention concerne un système de stimulation magnétique qui induit des impulsions de champ électrique approximativement rectangulaires dans un organe corporel, comprenant un dispositif de stockage d'énergie électrique, une bobine de stimulation et un moyen de commutation qui relie électriquement ledit dispositif de stockage d'énergie électrique à ladite bobine de stimulation, afin d'induire des impulsions de courant dans ladite bobine de stimulation qui, en réponse aux impulsions de courant, génère des impulsions de champ magnétique qui peuvent induire des impulsions de champ électrique approximativement rectangulaires dans l'organe corporels.
