Title (EN) STRAIN RELIEF FEATURE FOR AN IMPLANTABLE MEDICAL DEVICE LEAD
(FR) CARACTÉRISTIQUE DE SOULAGEMENT DE CONTRAINTE POUR UNE SONDE DE DISPOSITIF MÉDICAL IMPLANTABLE
Abstract:
(EN) A lead assembly for an implantable medical device includes a lead body having a proximal end, a distal end, and a longitudinal axis that extends between the proximal end and distal end. The lead assembly also includes a strain relief tube that surrounds a portion of the lead body. The strain relief tube includes a flexible material configured to include contours such that the portion of the lead body surrounded by the strain relief tube maintains a formed shape that varies from the longitudinal axis of the lead body. The contours vary in response to forces on the lead body to prevent strain at the distal end of the lead body.
(FR) Un ensemble sonde pour un dispositif médical implantable comprend un corps de sonde ayant une extrémité proximale, une extrémité distale et un axe longitudinal qui s'étend entre l'extrémité proximale et l'extrémité distale. L'ensemble sonde comprend également un tube de soulagement de contrainte qui entoure une partie du corps de sonde. Le tube de soulagement de contrainte comprend une matière flexible configurée pour comprendre des contours de sorte que la partie du corps de sonde entourée par le tube de soulagement de contrainte maintienne une forme façonnée qui varie à partir de l'axe longitudinal du corps de sonde. Les contours varient en réponse à des forces sur le corps de sonde pour empêcher une contrainte à l'extrémité distale du corps de sonde.
