Title (EN) TISSUE TEMPERATURE INDICATING ELEMENT FOR ULTRASOUND THERAPY
(FR) ELÉMENT INDIQUANT LA TEMPÉRATURE DE TISSUS POUR UNE THÉRAPIE PAR ULTRASONS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to a hydrogel-containing temperature indicating element for use in ultrasound therapy. The temperature indicating element of the present invention and the therapeutic device and method making use of the same enable in some embodiments an automated adaptation of the power output as a function of the tissue temperature, avoiding therefore overheating or burning of the skin.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un élément indiquant la température contenant un hydrogel destiné à être utilisé dans la thérapie par ultrasons. L'élément indiquant la température selon la présente invention, le dispositif thérapeutique et le procédé de fabrication de ceux-ci permettent, dans certains modes de réalisation, une adaptation automatisée de la puissance de sortie en fonction de la température des tissus, évitant ainsi un échauffement excessif ou une brûlure de la peau.
