Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR INJECTING A SUBSTANCE INTO A HUMAN BODY
Abstract:
A system for injecting a substance into a human body comprises a tubular member (1105) with an outlet opening for injecting the substance, a pump with an inlet connectable to a supply of the substance and to receive the substance from the supply, and an outlet connectable to the tubular member for delivering the substance to the tubular member, means (1106) for sensing a movement and/or a position of the tubular member relative to the body, and control means for controlling the pumpto deliver the substance at a rate related to the sensed movement and/or position of the tubular member relative to the body. The system is particularly useful for injecting a filler substance such as adipose tissue cells or a synthetic filling substance for cosmetic, reconstructive or otherwise therapeutic purposes.
