Title (EN) MANDIBULAR ADVANCEMENT DEVICE AND METHOD OF ADJUSTING A DIMENSION OF A COUPLING ASSEMBLY OF A MANDIBULAR ADVANCEMENT DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'AVANCEMENT MANDIBULAIRE ET PROCÉDÉ DE RÉGLAGE D'UNE DIMENSION D'UN ENSEMBLE DE COUPLAGE D'UN DISPOSITIF D'AVANCEMENT MANDIBULAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) A mandibular advancement device (102,302) includes a first brace member (104,304) structured to engage an upper dentition of a user, a second brace member (106,306) structured to engage a lower dentition of a user, and a number of coupling assemblies (108,308) each coupling the first brace member to the second brace member. Each of the number of coupling assemblies includes an actuating element (114,314) structured to automatically adjust a dimension (136,336) of the coupling assembly. The actuating element is selected from the group consisting of a biasing element (114) and a volume responsive material (314).
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif d'avancement mandibulaire (102, 302) comprenant un premier élément de support (104, 304) structuré pour venir en prise avec une dentition supérieure d'un utilisateur, un second élément de support (106, 306) structuré pour venir en prise avec une dentition inférieure d'un utilisateur, et un certain nombre d'ensembles de couplage (108, 308) reliant chacun le premier élément de support au second élément de support. Chaque ensemble du certain nombre d'ensembles de couplage comprend un élément d'actionnement (114, 314) structuré pour régler automatiquement une dimension (136, 336) de l'ensemble de couplage. L'élément d'actionnement est choisi dans le groupe constitué par un élément de sollicitation (114) et un matériau sensible au volume (314).
