Title (EN) SEM SCANNER SENSING APPARATUS, SYSTEM AND METHODOLOGY FOR EARLY DETECTION OF ULCERS
(FR) APPAREIL DE DÉTECTION DE SCANNER SEM, SYSTÈME ET MÉTHODOLOGIE POUR LA DÉTECTION PRÉCOCE DES ULCÈRES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A handheld, conforming capacitive sensing apparatus configured to measure Sub-Epidermal Moisture (SEM) as a mean to detect and monitor the formation of pressure ulcers. The device incorporates an array of electrodes which are excited to measure and scan SEM in a programmable and multiplexed manner by a battery-less RF-powered chip. The scanning operation is initiated by an interrogator which excites a coil embedded in the apparatus and provides the needed energy burst to support the scanning/reading operation. Each electrode measures the equivalent sub-epidermal capacitance corresponding and representing the moisture content.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un appareil de détection capacitif portatif conforme configuré pour mesurer l'humidité sous-épidermique (SEM) en tant que moyen pour détecter et surveiller la formation d'ulcères de pression. Le dispositif incorpore un réseau d'électrodes qui sont excitées pour mesurer et balayer la SEM d'une manière programmable et multiplexée par une puce alimentée par RF sans batterie. L'opération de balayage est initiée par un dispositif d'interrogation qui excite un enroulement intégré dans l'appareil et fournit la rafale d'énergie nécessaire pour soutenir l'opération de balayage/lecture. Chaque électrode mesure la capacité sous-épidermique équivalente correspondant à la teneur en humidité et la représentant.
