Title
(EN) A METHOD FOR ELECTRICAL STIMULATION OF HUMAN RETINA USING PULSE TRAINS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ PERMETTANT DE STIMULER ÉLECTRIQUEMENT LA RÉTINE HUMAINE À L'AIDE DE TRAINS D'IMPULSIONS
Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus and method for retinal stimulation are shown. The apparatus comprises an implantable and external portion, and the method comprises varied parameters, including frequency, pulse width, and pattern of pulse trains to determine a stimulation pattern and visual perception threshold.
(FR)
Cette invention a pour objet un appareil et un procédé pour une stimulation rétinienne. L'appareil comprend une partie implantable et externe, et le procédé comprend des paramètres amenés à varier, comprenant la fréquence, la largeur d'impulsion et le motif des trains d'impulsion pour déterminer un motif de stimulation et un seuil de perception visuelle.
