Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR MONITORING OF A MECHANICAL FORCE
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE SURVEILLANCE DE FORCE MÉCANIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
Systems and methods for monitoring a mechanical force applied to a wound site repairing structure are disclosed. In an embodiment, the systems include a wound site repairing structure, a magnetoelastic sensor coupled to the wound site repairing structure, and a detection system. The detection system includes an excitation coil configured to transmit a signal to the magnetoelastic sensor and a detection coil configured to detect a signal indicative of a mechanical force applied to the wound site repairing structure. The detection system also includes a detection unit configured to detect the signal indicative of the mechanical force applied to the wound repairing structure.

L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés pour surveiller une force mécanique appliquée à une structure de réparation de site de plaie. Dans un mode de réalisation, les systèmes comprennent une structure de réparation de site de plaie, un capteur magnéto-élastique couplé à la structure de réparation de site de plaie, et un système de détection. Le système de détection comprend une bobine d'excitation configurée pour émettre un signal au capteur magnéto-élastique, et une bobine de détection configurée pour détecter un signal indiquant une force mécanique appliquée à la structure de réparation de site de plaie. Le système de détection comprend également une unité de détection configurée pour détecter le signal indiquant la force mécanique appliquée à la structure de réparation de plaie.
