Title: IMPROVED STIMULATION APPARATUS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a clitoris (12) stimulation apparatus (1) with improved ergonomics and comprising: a pressure field generating device (2) having a drive unit (6) and a hollow space (10), the drive unit (6) being capable of periodically generating a pressure field with alternating positive and negative pressures in the hollow space (10) when the drive unit varies the volume of the hollow space (10), said hollow space (10) having an opening (42) which can be placed on the clitoris (12); a control device (7) designed to control the drive unit (6); and a sensor device (78) designed to detect when the stimulation apparatus (1) comes close to the clitoris (12) or, alternatively, when the stimulation apparatus (1) comes into contact with the clitoris (12), and designed to output an activation signal to the control device (7) upon detection of any approximation or contact. The control device (7) is designed such that the drive unit (6) is activated in the presence of an activation signal. The pressure field generating device (2), the control device (7) and the sensor device (78) are accommodated in a housing (8) of the stimulation apparatus (1) and the stimulation apparatus (1) is designed as a portable handheld appliance.
