Title
(EN) PAIN MANAGEMENT BASED ON EMOTIONAL EXPRESSION MEASUREMENTS
(FR) PRISE EN CHARGE DE LA DOULEUR SUR LA BASE DE MESURES DE L'EXPRESSION ÉMOTIONNELLE
Abstract
(EN)
This document discusses, among other things, systems and methods for managing pain in a subject. A system may include one or more sensors configured to sense from the subject information corresponding to emotional reaction to pain, such as emotional expression. The emotional expression includes facial or vocal expression. A pain analyzer circuit may generate a pain score using signal metrics of facial or vocal expression extracted from the sensed information. The pain score may be output to a user or a process. The system may additionally include a neurostimulator that can adaptively control the delivery of pain therapy by automatically adjusting stimulation parameters based on the pain score.
(FR)
L'invention concerne, notamment, des systèmes et des méthodes pour la prise en charge de la douleur chez un sujet. Un système peut comprendre un ou plusieurs capteurs conçus pour détecter, chez le sujet, des informations correspondant à une réaction émotionnelle à la douleur, par exemple une expression émotionnelle. L'expression émotionnelle comprend l'expression faciale ou vocale. Un circuit d'analyse de la douleur peut générer un score de douleur à l'aide de mesures de signaux d'expression faciale ou vocale extraites des informations détectées. Le score de douleur peut être fourni à un utilisateur ou à un processus. Le système peut en outre comprendre un neurostimulateur qui peut piloter de manière adaptative la délivrance d'un traitement contre la douleur par ajustement automatique des paramètres de stimulation sur la base du score de douleur.
