Title (EN) LOAD-INDUCED HYDRODYNAMIC LUBRICATION OF POROUS SUBSTRATES
(FR) LUBRIFICATION HYDRODYNAMIQUE DE SUBSTRATS POREUX INDUITE PAR UNE CHARGE
Abstract:
(EN) A medical device for cooperating with a body surface of a patient includes an elastically deformable substrate having a first surface, a second surface, and a plurality of pores extending from the first surface towards the second surface to define a plurality of spaced-apart projections. A lubricant is provided in the pores. Applying a compressive force to the substrate with the body surface elastically deforms the projections to displace the lubricant out of the pores and provide hydrodynamic lubrication between the medical device and the body surface.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif médical destiné à coopérer avec une surface du corps d'un patient qui comprend un substrat déformable élastiquement comprenant une première surface, une seconde surface, et une pluralité de pores s'étendant de la première surface vers la seconde surface pour définir une pluralité de saillies espacées les unes des autres. Un lubrifiant est placé dans les pores. L'application d'une force de compression sur le substrat avec la surface corporelle déforme élastiquement les saillies pour déplacer le lubrifiant hors des pores et effectuer une lubrification hydrodynamique entre le dispositif médical et la surface corporelle.
