CLAIMS

1. A modular device for wireless communication between a transmitter and a receiver, the latter being mounted on a fastener to be worn by an animal/a human being or to be in contact therewith, the device comprising an electronic receiver (200, 300) having an electronic circuit and a plurality of electrical contact points extending at a distance from the electronic circuit, the contact points being used to deliver an electrical output in a number of distinct levels into the animal's or human being's body in response to a command signal communicated wirelessly by the transmitter, the electronic receiver (200, 300) comprising a PCB (213, 313) for receiving and handling the command signal, a battery (214, 314) for feeding the receiver (200, 300), one or more contact points with the animal/human being's body (220, 320) connected by insulated wires to the PCB (213, 313) in such a manner to have a positive polarity, respectively a negative polarity, wherein the modular device is structurally made of a string of individual and distinct separate elements or modules (210, 310), containing each a functional part selected from the group consisting of a PCB (213, 313), a battery (214, 314) and a part containing one or more contact points (220, 320) of the same polarity respectively, at least part of said individual and distinct separate elements (210, 310) being attached to one another only thanks to at least two substantially parallel flexible tubes (31 , 32 ; 331 , 332) of a given length and containing said insulated wires, so that the specific location of the modules (210, 310) containing the contact points (220, 320) and the order or sequence thereof in the string define an extension length for the contact points.

2. The modular device according to claim 1 , wherein the individual distinct and separate elements (210, 310), attached so as to make a string, substantially have the shape of a box, the tubes of a given length being connected to the side edges of the latter.

3. The modular device according to claim 1 , wherein it contains means for attaching some of the modules directly together with proper mechanical and electrical contact, without the intermediate flexible tubes between two modules, so that said modules can be flexibly added, removed or interchanged in the device.

4. The modular device according to claim 1 , wherein the individual distinct and separate element (210, 310) are made of synthetic material molded with said tubes (31 , 32 ; 331 , 332) in a single string.

5. The modular device according to claim 3, wherein the PCB (213, 313) and the battery (214, 314) are each encapsulated in a single-molded element while the individual distinct and separate elements containing contact points (21 1 , 212, 215 ; 31 1 , 312) have each one or more pins (220, 320) protruding out of the molded material.

6. The modular device according to claim 1 , wherein the flexible tubes of a given length (31 , 32 ; 331 , 332) are made of synthetic twistable and stretchable material, so that the whole string can be stretched and/or twisted in use.

7. The modular device according to claim 1 , wherein the receiver substantially conforms to a contour of a body part of an animal or of a human being, ensuring improved contact between the extended contact points with the animal's or human being's body.

8. The modular device of claim 1 , further including an electronic transmitter possessed and operated by an animal's handler that generates the command signal.

9. The modular device of claim 1 , wherein the electrical output into the animal's body is configured to be varied continually to customize to a requirement.

10. The modular device of claim 1 , wherein the string of individual separate and distinct elements (210, 310) being attached using at least two substantially parallel flexible tubes (31 , 32 ; 331 , 332) of a given length is incorporated in a fastener suitable to attach the receiver to the animal or human being.

11. The modular device of claim 1 , wherein the individual separate and distinct elements (210, 310) are connected through the substantially parallel flexible tubes of a given length (31 , 32 ; 331 , 332) in series, in parallel or in tree form.

12. The modular device of claim 1 , wherein a remotely controllable lighting system is incorporated within the string of individual separate elements being attached using at least two substantially parallel flexible tubes of a given length, individual lighting components being incorporated in said individual separate and distinct elements.

13. The modular device of claim 1 , wherein a device having a function of measuring local temperature or of detecting noxious gases is incorporated within at least one element of the string of individual separate and distinct elements being attached to one another tanks to at least two substantially parallel flexible tubes of a given length.

14. The modular device of claim 1 , wherein it is part of a system selected from the group of an animal training or stimulation collar, an anti-barking collar, a GPS-containing tracking collar, an electronic fence, a baby monitoring device and a stimulation system for horses made of man-worn leggings comprising spikes for providing electric stimulus.
