Title
(EN) PHOTOTHERAPY DEVICES FOR TREATMENT OF DERMATOLOGICAL DISORDERS OF THE SCALP
(FR) DISPOSITIFS DE PHOTOTHÉRAPIE POUR LE TRAITEMENT DE TROUBLES DERMATOLOGIQUES DU CUIR CHEVELU
Abstract
(EN) Modulated light therapy devices for treatment of dermatological disorders of the scalp are provided. An exemplary device includes a flexible printed circuit board (FPCB) supporting at least one light emitting device having an emitter height. The FPCB includes multiple interconnected panels and bending regions defined in and between at least some of the interconnected panels as to allow the FPCB to be configured in a concave shape to cover at least a portion of a cranial vertex of the patient. At least one light-transmissive layer proximate to the FPCB is configured to transmit (e.g., incoherent) light emissions generated by at least one light emitting device. At least one standoff is configured to be arranged between the FPCB and the scalp of the patient, wherein the at least one standoff includes a standoff height that exceeds the emitter height.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des dispositifs de thérapie par lumière modulée pour le traitement de troubles dermatologiques du cuir chevelu. Un dispositif donné à titre d'exemple comprend une carte de circuit imprimé souple (FPCB) supportant au moins un dispositif émettant de la lumière ayant une hauteur d'émetteur. La FPCB comprend plusieurs panneaux interconnectés et des régions de flexion définies dans et entre au moins certains des panneaux interconnectés pour permettre la conception de la FPCB dans une forme concave pour recouvrir au moins une partie d'un sommet crânien du patient. Au moins une couche transmettant la lumière à proximité de la FPCB est configurée pour transmettre des émissions de lumière (par exemple, incohérente) générées par au moins un dispositif émettant de la lumière. Au moins une douille-entretoise autosertissable est configurée pour être disposée entre la FPCB et le cuir chevelu du patient, la ou les douilles-entretoises autosertissables comprenant une hauteur de douille-entretoise autosertissable qui dépasse la hauteur d'émetteur.
