Title (EN) VIBRATORY INTRA-ORAL BIOFEEDBACK APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL INTRA-BUCCAL VIBRATOIRE POUR BIO-RÉTROACTION
(PT) APARELHO INTRA ORAL VIBRATÓRIO DE BIOFEEDBACK
Abstract:
(EN) A vibratory intra-oral biofeedback apparatus for the treatment of oral-facial pain and temporomandibular disorder by providing a stimulus, in response to the involuntary or parafunctional contraction of the mastication muscles beyond a pre-established limit, comprises at least one active device formed by a set of functional components comprising a vibrator (18), at least one sensor (15), batteries (17) and a processor. The device is sealed inside a plate made of synthetic resin which, in the preferred embodiments, is shaped to match the profile of the dental arcades into which it is fitted. The stimulus in the form of a vibration is triggered when the force of the involuntary contraction of the mastication muscles reaches a limit generally comprised between 20 n and 70 n. The apparatus can include two active devices located on the left and right sides of the arcade or a single device located either on the left or on the right side of the arcade.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil intra-oral vibratoire pour bio-rétroaction, destiné au traitement d’une douleur oro-faciale et d'une dysfonction temporo-mandibulaire par application d'un stimulus en réponse à une contraction involontaire ou parafonctionnelle des muscles de la mastication, au-dessus d'une limite pré-établie, comprenant au moins un dispositif actif constitué par un ensemble d'éléments fonctionnels, lesquels comportent un vibreur (18), au moins un capteur (15), des batteries (17) et un processeur. Ledit dispositif est inséré de manière étanche dans une plaque fabriquée en résine synthétique qui, dans les modes de réalisation préférés, est configurée de manière à suivre le contour des arcades dentaires dans lesquelles il vient s'emboîter. Le stimulus, sous la forme d'une vibration, est appliqué lorsque la force de contraction involontaire des muscles de mastication atteint un seuil généralement compris entre 20n et 70n. L'appareil peut comprendre deux dispositifs actifs situés sur les côtés gauche et droit de l'arcade, ou un seul dispositif actif situé sur l'un des côtés, gauche ou droit, de l'arcade.
(PT) Aparelho intra oral vibratório de biofeedback, para tratamento da dor orofacial e disfunção temporo-mandibular mediante o provimento de um estímulo em resposta à contração involuntária ou parafuncional dos músculos da mastigação acima de um limite pré-estabelecido, compreendendo pelo menos um dispositivo ativo formado por um conjunto de elementos funcionais, compreendendo estes um vibrador (18), pelo menos um sensor (15), baterias (17), e processador. Dito dispositivo está inserido de forma estanque numa placa confeccionada em resina sintética que nas concretizações preferidas está configurada de acordo com o contorno das arcadas dentárias nas quais se encaixa. O estímulo, sob a forma de vibração, é disparado quando a força de contração involuntária dos músculos de mastigação atinge um limiar que geralmente está compreendido entre 20n e 70n. O aparelho pode compreender dois dispositivos ativos localizados do lado esquerdo e direito da arcada ou apenas um dispositivo ativo, localizado de um dos lados, esquerdo ou direito, da arcada.
