Title: EXTERNAL ULTRASOUND GENERATING TREATING DEVICE FOR SPINAL CORD AND SPINAL NERVES TREATMENT, APPARATUS COMPRISING SUCH DEVICE AND METHOD IMPLEMENTING SUCH DEVICE
Abstract:
The invention related to an external ultrasound generating treating device (12), to induce spinal cord and/or spinal nerve treatment, comprising at least two sub-arrays of ultrasound generating treatment transducers, a left sub-array (20iL) being located on a left lateral side and a right sub-array (20iR) being located on a right lateral side of the central longitudinal axis (Ai), characterized in that the device comprises a support structure (32) having at least one module (34i) comprising a left lateral section (34iL) and a right lateral section (34iR), and in that the support structure (32) maintains, in use of the device, a constant distance and a constant relative angular orientation around the central longitudinal axis (Ai) between the first left and first right treatment transducers or set of treatment transducers (20iL, 20iR). The invention also provides for an apparatus including such a device and for methods.
