Title (EN) NEUROMODULATION USING LOW CONDUCTIVE ELECTRODE COATINGS
(FR) NEUROMODULATION UTILISANT DES REVÊTEMENTS D'ÉLECTRODE FAIBLEMENT CONDUCTEURS
Abstract:
(EN) Modulation of neuronal activity with electrical signals is used to treat a variety of neurological disorders such as, but not limited to, chronic pain, movement disorders, seizures, refractory depression, cardiac disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, obesity and urinary inconsistence. A method of limiting the current flowing from the electrode to produce the electrostatic field could significantly reduce the power requirements to modulate neuronal activity. In embodiments, systems and methods include coated electrodes with low conductive carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and/or polymeric coatings.
(FR) La modulation de l'activité neuronale par des signaux électriques est utilisée pour traiter une variété de troubles neurologiques tels que, sans limitation, la douleur chronique, les troubles du mouvement, les crises d'épilepsie, la dépression réfractaire, les troubles cardiaques, le trouble obsessionnel compulsif, l'obésité et les troubles urinaires. Un procédé de limitation du courant circulant à partir de l'électrode pour produire le champ électrostatique pourrait réduire de manière significative les exigences de puissance pour moduler l'activité neuronale. Dans des modes de réalisation, des systèmes et des procédés comprennent des électrodes revêtues de nanotubes de carbone à faible conductivité (NTC) et/ou des revêtements polymères.
