(FR) SYSTÈME DE CARACTÉRISATION OU DE SURVEILLANCE DE DISPOSITIFS IMPLANTÉS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method for determining the condition of a device that has an electrically conductive surface and is implanted in the human or animal body, the method involving measuring impedance of the implanted device using substantially the whole of the device surface as a measurement electrode.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un procédé permettant de déterminer l’état d’un dispositif qui possède une surface électriquement conductrice et qui est implanté dans le corps d’un homme ou d’un animal. Ledit procédé implique la mesure de l’impédance du dispositif implanté en utilisant substantiellement l’ensemble de la surface du dispositif en tant qu’électrode de mesure.
