Title (EN) CURRENT STEERING FOR AN IMPLANTABLE STIMULATOR DEVICE INVOLVING FRACTIONALIZED STIMULATION PULSES
(FR) COMMANDE DE COURANT POUR STIMULATEUR IMPLANTABLE IMPLIQUANT DES IMPULSIONS DE STIMULATION FRACTIONNÉES
Abstract: front page image
A method for configuring stimulation pulses in an implantable stimulator device having a plurality of electrodes is disclosed, which method is particularly useful in adjusting the electrodes by current steering during initialization of the device. In one aspect, a set of ideal pulses for patient therapy is determined, in which at least two of the ideal pulses are of the same polarity and are intended to be simultaneous applied to corresponding electrodes on the implantable stimulator device during an initial duration. These pulses are reconstructed into fractionalized pulses, each comprised of pulse portions. The fractionalized pulses are applied to the corresponding electrodes on the device during a final duration, but the pulse portions of the fractionalized pulses are not simultaneously applied during the final duration.
