Title
(EN) RELIABLE MINIATURE IMPLANTABLE CONNECTOR WITH HIGH CHANNEL DENSITY AND METHODS OF USING THE SAME
(FR) CONNECTEUR MINIATURE FIABLE IMPLANTABLE À HAUTE DENSITÉ DE CANAUX ET SES PROCÉDÉS D'UTILISATION
Abstract
(EN)
Embodiments are provided that enable an implantable connector, along with related apparatuses, devices, systems, methods, computing devices, computing entities, and/or the like to serve patients with neural interfaces requiring connectors with higher channel densities (>0.05 ch/mm3) or higher channel counts (>32) than is practical with conventional implant-connector technology.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des modes de réalisation qui permettent à un connecteur implantable, conjointement avec des appareils, des dispositifs, des systèmes, des procédés, des dispositifs informatiques et des entités informatiques associés, et/ou analogues de desservir des patients ayant des interfaces neurales nécessitant des connecteurs ayant des densités de canaux plus élevées (> 0,05 ch/mm3) ou des nombre de canaux plus élevés (> 32) qu'en pratique avec la technologie de connecteur d'implant classique.
