Title
(EN) MAGNETIC ATTACHMENT ARRANGEMENT FOR IMPLANTABLE DEVICE
(FR) CONFIGURATION DE FIXATION MAGNÉTIQUE POUR DISPOSITIF IMPLANTABLE
Abstract
(EN)
A magnet arrangement is described for use in implantable devices. An implantable housing contains a portion of an implantable electronic system. A cylindrical implant magnet arrangement within the housing includes multiple adjacent magnetic sections wherein at least two of the magnetic sections have opposing magnetic orientations in opposite magnetic directions. There may also be a similar external housing having a corresponding magnet arrangement.
(FR)
L'invention concerne une configuration d'aimants destinée à être utilisée dans des dispositifs implantables. Un boîtier implantable contient une partie d'un système électronique implantable. Une configuration cylindrique d'aimants pour implant située à l'intérieur du boîtier comprend des sections magnétiques adjacentes multiples, au moins deux des sections magnétiques présentant des aimantations de sens opposé. L'invention peut également comprendre un boîtier externe similaire doté d'une configuration correspondante d'aimants.
