Title (EN) SENSORS IMPLANTABLE INTO A PATIENT'S BODY, SYSTEMS, AND METHODS OF USING THE SAME
(FR) CAPTEURS IMPLANTABLES DANS LE CORPS D'UN PATIENT, SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS D'UTILISATION DE CEUX-CI
Abstract:
(EN) In one example, a sensor is configured to be implanted into a patient's body. The sensor has at least one sensing element, a measurement device in communication with the at least one sensing element, and an internal wireless communicator in communication with the measurement device. The at least one sensing element includes a resistor, and the measurement device includes a capacitor. The measurement device measures a discharge time of the capacitor through the resistor so as to generate a measurement value that is proportional to a value of an anatomical property of the anatomical body, such as strain, that is observed by the sensor. The internal wireless communicator wirelessly communicates the measurement value through skin of the patient to an external wireless communicator situated outside of the patient's body.
(FR) Dans un exemple selon l'invention, un capteur est configuré pour être implanté dans le corps d'un patient. Le capteur comprend au moins un élément de détection, un dispositif de mesure en communication avec le ou les éléments de détection, et un dispositif de communication sans fil interne en communication avec le dispositif de mesure. Le ou les éléments de détection comprennent une résistance, et le dispositif de mesure comprend un condensateur. Le dispositif de mesure mesure un temps de décharge du condensateur à travers la résistance de façon à générer une valeur de mesure qui est proportionnelle à une valeur d'une propriété anatomique du corps anatomique, telle qu'une contrainte, qui est observée par le capteur. Le dispositif de communication sans fil interne communique sans fil la valeur de mesure à travers la peau du patient à un dispositif de communication sans fil externe situé à l'extérieur du corps du patient.
