Title
(EN) MATERIALS AND APPROACHES FOR OPTICAL STIMULATION OF THE PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM
(FR) MATÉRIAUX ET APPROCHES POUR STIMULATION OPTIQUE DU SYSTÈME NERVEUX PÉRIPHÉRIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A variety of methods, devices, systems and arrangements are implemented for stimulation of the peripheral nervous system. Consistent with one embodiment of the present invention, method is implemented in which light-responsive channels or pumps are engineered in a set of motor units that includes motor units of differing physical volumes. Optical stimuli are also provided to the light-responsive channels or pumps at an optical intensity that is a function of the size of motor units to be recruited. In certain implementations, the intensity of the optical stimuli is increased so as to recruit increasingly larger motor units.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur une pluralité de procédés, dispositifs, systèmes et agencements qui sont mis en œuvre pour une stimulation du système nerveux périphérique. De façon cohérente avec un mode de réalisation de la présente invention, on met en œuvre un procédé dans lequel des canaux sensibles à la lumière ou pompes sont réalisés dans un ensemble d'unités motrices qui comprend des unités motrices de différents volumes physiques. On fournit également des stimuli optiques aux canaux ou pompes sensibles à la lumière à une intensité optique qui est fonction de la dimension des unités motrices devant être recrutées. Dans certaines mises en œuvre, on augmente l'intensité des stimuli optiques de façon à recruter des unités motrices de plus en plus grandes.
