Title (EN) TRANSCRANIAL STIMULATION
(FR) STIMULATION CRÂNIENNE
Abstract:
(EN) A method includes coupling electrodes to a patient's head and identifying whether any of the electrodes form a functional set, such that a desired therapeutic effect is achieved when the two or more electrodes deliver a total amount of current to the patient regardless of what portion of the total amount of current each respective electrode carries. One or more constant current sources are provided, each having a supply and return terminal, which supply and return equal amounts of current at any given time. The constant current source(s) are coupled to the electrodes in such a manner that each supply terminal and each return terminal is coupled to no more than the electrodes of a single one of the functional sets, if any, or to a single one of the electrodes not included in one of the functional sets.
(FR) L'invention concerne une méthode consistant à coupler des électrodes sur le crâne d'un patient et à déterminer si certaines électrodes forment un ensemble fonctionnel, de sorte à obtenir un effet thérapeutique désiré lorsqu'au moins deux électrodes distribuent une quantité totale de courant au patient, quelle que soit la quantité de courant respective que chaque électrode transporte. Au moins une source de courant constant est présente, chaque source de courant comprenant une borne de distribution et une borne de retour destinées à distribuer et à renvoyer des quantités égales de courant à n'importe quel moment donné. La/les source(s) de courant constant est/sont couplée(s) aux électrodes de sorte que chaque borne de distribution et chaque borne de retour soit couplée soit seulement aux électrodes d'un ensemble fonctionnel unique soit à une électrode unique qui n'est pas comprise dans un des ensembles fonctionnels.
