Title (EN) AURICULAR STIMULATION DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE STIMULATION AURICULAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) An auricular stimulation device having surface electrodes biased towards each other, and offset from one another, is provided. The stimulation device can be positioned about the ear of a patient with each of the electrodes overlaying auricular ear tissue containing innervation supplied by an auricular branch of the vagus nerve. The electrodes transcutaneously stimulate the auricular branch. Also provided is a method of treating a patient using the auricular stimulation device. The stimulation device can be used for treating patients with conditions such as high blood pressure, depression, high blood glucose level, and tinnitus. Also provided is a diagnostic and therapeutic system having the auricular stimulation device, a smart device and a monitoring device. The smart device controls the auricular stimulation device based on biomarker information received from the monitoring device; and on information related to the patient, such as age, musculoskeletal stability, etc.; and/or on user input.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de stimulation auriculaire comprenant des électrodes de surface sollicitées les unes vers les autres, et décalées les unes par rapport aux autres. Le dispositif de stimulation peut être positionné autour de l'oreille d'un patient, chacune des électrodes recouvrant un tissu auriculaire contenant une innervation fournie par une branche auriculaire du nerf vague. Les électrodes stimulent la branche auriculaire par voie transcutanée. L'invention concerne également un procédé de traitement d'un patient à l'aide du dispositif de stimulation auriculaire. Le dispositif de stimulation peut être utilisé pour traiter des patients atteints de maladies telles qu'une pression sanguine élevée, une dépression, un taux de glucose sanguin élevé et un acouphène. L'invention concerne également un système diagnostique et thérapeutique comprenant le dispositif de stimulation auriculaire, un dispositif intelligent et un dispositif de surveillance. Le dispositif intelligent commande le dispositif de stimulation auriculaire sur la base d'informations de biomarqueurs reçues du dispositif de surveillance, d'informations relatives au patient, telles que l'âge, la stabilité musculo-squelettique, etc., et de l'entrée de l'utilisateur.
