Title
(EN) ADAPTIVE MUSCLE STIMULATION TECHNIQUE
(FR) TECHNIQUE DE STIMULATION MUSCULAIRE ADAPTATIVE
Abstract
(EN)
An embodiment of the invention resides in the apparatus and technique of dynamically measuring and storing a biological condition or disposition during the time that one set of conditions are imposed on a joint or body area and applying closed-loop therapeutic action so as to re-achieve that same biological condition or disposition during a subsequent time that another different set of conditions are imposed. Furthermore, dynamic potentials surrounding said joint or body area may be created, bolstered, and/or modulated through aspects of stimulation applied which are independent of those aspects utilized to counteract force incident on the joint or body area. Other embodiments are described herein.
(FR)
L'invention concerne, selon un mode de réalisation, un appareil et une technique pour la mesure dynamique et le stockage d'un état ou d'une disposition biologique pendant l'imposition d'un ensemble de conditions à une articulation ou une zone du corps, et l'application d'une action thérapeutique en boucle fermée afin d'obtenir de nouveau ce même état ou cette même disposition biologique pendant l'imposition d'un autre ensemble différent de conditions. Par ailleurs, des potentiels dynamiques entourant ladite articulation ou zone du corps peuvent être créés, renforcés et/ou modulés par des aspects de la stimulation appliquée qui sont indépendants des aspects utilisés pour contrer des forces incidentes sur l'articulation ou la zone du corps. D'autres modes de réalisation sont décrits dans le présent document.
