Title (EN) DISPOSABLE GASTROINTESTINAL IMPLANTABLE STIMULATOR
(FR) STIMULATEUR IMPLANTABLE GASTRO-INTESTINAL JETABLE
Abstract:
(EN) A disposable implant that may be positioned inside the gastrointestinal (GI) tract through laparotomy or laparoscopic surgery. The implant may be secured in place using a biodegradable glue or biodegradable suture and is naturally expelled from the body with bowel movement after a certain period of time. In one embodiment, GI implant comprises a coil that receives power from, and sends the recorded physiological information to, an external device through wireless inductive coupling.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un implant jetable qui peut être positionné à l'intérieur du tractus gastro-Intestinal (GI) par laparotomie ou chirurgie laparoscopique. L'implant peut être fixé en place au moyen d'une colle biodégradable ou d’une suture biodégradable et est naturellement expulsé du corps avec la défécation après un certain temps. Dans un mode de réalisation, un implant GI comprend une bobine qui reçoit de l'énergie depuis, et envoie des informations physiologiques enregistrées à, un dispositif externe par couplage inductif sans fil.
