Title (EN) ELECTRICAL STIMULATION FOR ORTHOPEDIC DEVICES
(FR) STIMULATION ÉLECTRIQUE POUR DISPOSITIFS ORTHOPÉDIQUES
Abstract:
(EN) An orthopedic device includes a brace support (56) having at least one strap (58, 60) for providing corrective orientation of a joint and unloading of the joint, and an electrical stimulation system (51) for providing an electrical signal to a user's musculature at or proximate to the joint. The electrical stimulation system (51) provides at least one electrical pulse to the musculature in supplement to the corrective orientation of the joint to induce contraction of the musculature. The electrical stimulation system (51) may include at least one electrode (70) for generating the electrical pulse, and a sensor module (76, 78) for determining movement and orientation of a user's limb for selectively activating the at least one electrode according to predefined criteria and feedback from the sensor module (76, 78).
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif orthopédique, qui comprend un support d'appareil orthopédique (56) ayant au moins une sangle (58, 60) pour permettre une orientation corrective d'une articulation et un déchargement de l'articulation, et un système de stimulation électrique (51) pour fournir un signal électrique à la musculature d'un utilisateur au niveau ou à proximité de l'articulation. Le système de stimulation électrique (51) fournit au moins une impulsion électrique à la musculature en plus de l'orientation corrective de l'articulation pour induire une contraction de la musculature. Le système de stimulation électrique (51) peut comprendre au moins une électrode (70) pour générer l'impulsion électrique, et un module de capteur (76, 78) pour déterminer un mouvement et une orientation d'un membre d'un utilisateur pour activer sélectivement la ou les électrodes en fonction de critères prédéfinis et d'une rétroaction provenant du module de capteur (76, 78).
