Abstract
(EN)
A system includes a first implantable medical device configured to receive a first far field radiative signal at a first frequency from an external transmitter to charge a first charge storage device. The first implantable medical device includes a first therapy delivery unit powered by the first charge storage device. The first therapy delivery unit delivers a first therapy to a first target tissue of a patient. The system also includes a second implantable medical device configured to receive a second far field radiative signal at a second frequency from the external transmitter to charge a second charge storage device. The second implantable medical device includes a second therapy delivery unit powered by the second charge storage device. The second therapy delivery unit delivers a second therapy to a second target tissue of the patient.

La présente invention concerne un système, qui comprend un premier dispositif médical implantable conçu pour recevoir un premier signal de rayonnement en champ lointain à une première fréquence à partir d'un émetteur externe pour charger un premier dispositif de stockage de charge. Le premier dispositif médical implantable comprend une première unité d'administration de thérapie alimentée par le premier dispositif de stockage de charge. La première unité d'administration de thérapie délivre une première thérapie à un premier tissu cible d'un patient. La présente invention concerne également un second dispositif médical implantable, conçu pour recevoir un second signal de rayonnement en champ lointain à une seconde fréquence, à partir de l'émetteur externe pour charger un second dispositif de stockage de charge. Le second dispositif médical implantable comprend une seconde unité d'administration de thérapie alimentée par le second dispositif de stockage de charge. La seconde unité d'administration de thérapie délivre une seconde thérapie à un second tissu cible du patient.
