Title (EN) ORTHODONTIC APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL ORTHODONTIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN) A medical apparatus (1 ) for use in the corrective treatment of malocclusion and other dentofacial defects is provided. The apparatus (1 ) has at least one stimulator (14) which is configured to apply a stimulus to a part of the dento- oral complex and includes at least one actuator (15) controllable by means of electronic signals. A feedback system is also provided and is configured to measure parameters relating to the biomechanical tissue response resulting from the stimulus applied by the at least one stimulator (14), to analyse the parameters by means of a processor (12), and to adjust the stimulus applied by the at least one stimulator (14) by means of the required control signals in order to apply a stimulus representing an optimal orthodontic force.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil médical (1) destiné à être utilisé dans le traitement correctif de malocclusion et autres défauts dentofaciaux. L'appareil (1) a au moins un stimulateur (14) qui est configuré pour appliquer un stimulus à une partie du complexe dento-oral et comprend au moins un actionneur (15) apte à être commandé au moyen de signaux électroniques. Un système de rétroaction est également prévu, lequel est configuré pour mesurer des paramètres concernant une réponse de tissu biomécanique résultant du stimulus appliqué par l'au moins un stimulateur (14), analyser les paramètres au moyen d'un processeur (12) et ajuster le stimulus appliqué par l'au moins un stimulateur (14) au moyen des signaux de commande requis afin d'appliquer un stimulus représentant une force orthodontique optimale.
