Title
(EN) IMPLANTABLE MEDICAL DEVICES HAVING A LIQUID CRYSTAL POLYMER HOUSING
(FR) dispositifs médicaux implantables comportant un boîtier en polymère à cristaux liquides
Abstract
(EN)
An implantable medical device (50) having a liquid crystal polymer (LCP) housing (52). Circuitry (66) is positioned within the housing (52) to perform a predefined function, such as generate a stimulation waveform, or pump a fluid, or turn on a motor, for example. The circuitry (66) may include a power source (68), and the power source may be a rechargeable power source.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un dispositif médical implantable comportant un boîtier en polymère à cristaux liquides (PCL). Des circuits sont positionnés à l'intérieur du boîtier afin d'effectuer une fonction prédéterminée, telle que la génération d'une forme d'onde de stimulation, ou le pompage d'un fluide, ou l'allumage d'un moteur, par exemple. Les circuits peuvent comprendre une source d'alimentation qui peut être une source rechargeable.
