Description

La présente invention a pour objet un dispositif de commande d'un organe artificiel implanté dans le corps humain et nécessitant pour son fonctionnement un apport d'énergie électrique. The present invention relates to a control device of an artificial organ implanted in the human body and requiring for its operation a supply of electrical energy.

Pour remédier aux altérations ou aux pertes de contrôle d'un organe, on peut remplacer cet organe déficient, ou lui adjoindre un organe artificiel. To remedy the alterations or organ loss of control, we can replace this defective organ, or add to it an artificial organ.

Actuellement ces organes artificiels fonctionnent, pour la plupart, mécaniquement ou hydrauliquement, notamment pour ce qui est des sphincters artificiels, mais ces dispositifs présentent l'inconvénient de nécessiter des moyens de liaison entre 11 organe concerné et son moyen de commande, ce qui est une cause de gêne et d'inconfort pour le patient. Currently these artificial organs operate, for the most mechanically or hydraulically, in particular in terms of artificial sphincters, but these devices have the disadvantage of requiring connection means 11 between body concerned and its control means, which is a cause discomfort and discomfort for the patient.

D'autre part il est difficile de concevoir un organe artificiel fonctionnant électriquement relié à un générateur extra-corporel par l'intermédiaire de fils électriques traversant la peau. On the other hand it is difficult to design an artificial organ functioning electrically connected to an extracorporeal generator via electrical son through the skin.

La présente invention a pour but de remédier à cet inconvénient en proposant un dispositif de commande d'un organe artificiel nécessitant un apport d'énergie électrique, ledit dispositif présentant l'avantage de ne pas nécessiter de liaison physique entre ledit organe et l'extérieur de ltorganisme. The present invention aims to overcome this drawback by proposing a control device of an artificial organ requiring electrical energy input, the device has the advantage of not requiring a physical connection between said member and outside of ltorganisme.

Le dispositif objet de l'invention permet de transmettre à travers la peau, de l'extérieur vers l'intérieur de l'organisme, une énergie portée par des ondes. The object of the invention device can be transmitted through the skin, from outside to inside the body, an energy carried by waves.

A cet effet le dispositif selon l'invention comporte d'une part un dispositif de commande extra corporel à commande manuelle ou à commande gérée par un microprocesseur, comprenant une source d'énergie électrique, un oscillateur, un amplificateur et une antenne émettrice, et d'autre part un capteur d'énergie intra-corporel comprenant une antenne réceptrice, un dispositif d'accord de l'onde produite par l'émetteur et un ensemble de redressement connecté à l'organe artificiel. To this end the device according to the invention comprises firstly an extra corporeal control device to manual control or control managed by a microprocessor, comprising a source of electrical power, an oscillator, an amplifier and a transmitting antenna, and secondly an intracorporeal energy collector comprising a receiving antenna, a tuner of the wave produced by the transmitter and a straightening assembly connected to the artificial organ.

La source électrique mise en oeuvre dans le dispositif de commande extra-corporel peut être par exemple une pile, une batterie ou un accumulateur. The electrical source used in the extra-corporeal control device may be for example a battery, a battery or an accumulator.

Le dispositif d'accord de l'onde produite mis en oeuvre dans le capteur d'énergie intra-corporel peut être par exemple une condensateur ajustable permettant de sélectionner l'onde émise afin qu'aucune onde parasite n'active intempestivement l'organe artificiel. The wave tuning device produced implemented in the intra-corporeal energy sensor may for example be an adjustable capacitor for selecting the transmitted wave so that no interference wave activates unexpectedly the artificial organ .

Ainsi lorsque l'organe artificiel doit entrer en action il suffit d'approcher le boîtier de commande de la peau à proximité de l'antenne de réception du capteur d'énergie intra-corporel, de l'activer afin d'envoyer des ondes à travers la peau, ondes qui sont captées et transformées en l'énergie électrique nécessaire au fonctionnement dudit organe artificiel. Thus, when the artificial organ must be actuated simply approach the skin control box close to the receiving antenna of the intracorporeal energy sensor to activate it to send wave through the skin, waves that are sensed and converted into electrical energy necessary for the operation of said artificial organ.

Les ondes mises en oeuvre dans le dispositif selon l'invention peuvent être n'importe quelles ondes susceptibles de transporter de l'énergie, comme des ondes magnétiques, ou électromagnétiques (BF, HF, UHF, micro-ondes, radar). Waves implemented in the device of the invention may be any waves capable of transporting energy, such as electromagnetic waves, or electromagnetic (LF, HF, UHF, microwave, radar).

Les avantages et les caractéristiques de la présente invention ressortiront plus clairement de la description qui suit et qui se rapporte au dessin annexé, lequel en représente un mode de réalisation non limitatif. The advantages and features of the present invention will become apparent from the following description which refers to the attached drawing, which shows an embodiment not limiting.

Dans le dessin annexé In the accompanying drawing
- la figure 1 représente une vue schématique de profil d'un boîtier de commande selon l'invention. - Figure 1 represents a schematic view of a control box profile according to the invention.

- la figure 2 représente une vue schématique de dessus du même boîtier de commande. - Figure 2 shows a schematic top view of the same control unit.

- la figure 3 représente une vue schématique de profil d'un capteur d'onde intra-corporel. - Figure 3 shows a schematic profile view of an intracorporeal wave sensor.

- la figure 4 représente une vue de dessus du même capteur d'onde intra-corporel. - Figure 4 shows a top view of the same intracorporeal wave sensor.

- la figure 5 représente le schéma simplifié du circuit électronique du boîtier de commande. - Figure 5 shows the simplified diagram of the electronic circuit of the control unit.

Si on se réfère aux figures 1 ,2 et 5 on peut voir qu' un dispositif extra-corporel de commande comporte un boîtier 1 renfermant à l'une de ses extrémités une antenne 10 d'émission, reliée à un circuit électronique 11 comprenant un oscillateur 12 et un amplificateur 13, lui-même relié à un accumulateur 14, la commande d'émission étant gérée par un bouton-poussoir 15. Referring to Figures 1, 2 and 5 it can be seen that an extra-corporeal control device comprises a housing 1 containing at one of its ends 10 a transmitting antenna, connected to an electronic circuit 11 comprising a oscillator 12 and an amplifier 13, itself connected to an accumulator 14, the transmission control is managed by a push-button 15.

Si on se réfère aux figures 3 et 4 on peut voir qu'un capteur d'énergie 2 comporte une embase corporelle 20 destinée à l'implantation du capteur d'énergie 2 dans l'organisme, une antenne, ou collecteur d'ondes 21, un condensateur ajustable 22 constituant le dispositif d'accord de l'onde produite par l'émetteur, et un pont redresseur 23 relié par des fils 24 à l'organe artificiel, non représenté. Referring to Figures 3 and 4 it can be seen that an energy sensor body 2 comprises a base 20 for implantation of the energy sensor in the body 2, an antenna or collector wave 21 , an adjustable capacitor 22 constituting the wave tuning device produced by the transmitter, and a rectifier bridge 23 connected by son 24 to the artificial organ, not shown.

Pour activer l'organe artificiel, l'utilisateur approche le boîtier 1 de la peau, de manière que l'antenne d'émission 10 soit à proximité de l'antenne de réception 21, puis appuie sur le bouton 15, en maintenant la pression le temps nécessaire à l'activation. To enable the artificial organ, the user approaches the housing 1 of the skin, so that the transmit antenna 10 is close to the receiving antenna 21, and then presses the button 15, maintaining the pressure the time required for activation.

Les ondes émises à travers la peau par l'antenne 10 et réceptionnées par l'antenne 21 sont transformées en énergie électrique dirigée vers l'organe artificiel. The waves emitted through the skin by the antenna 10 and received by the antenna 21 are converted into electric energy directed to the artificial organ.

Il va de soi que la présente invention ne saurait être limitée à la description qui précède d'un de ses modes de réalisation, susceptible de subir un certain nombre de modifications sans pour autant sortir du cadre de l'invention. It goes without saying that this invention is not limited to the above description of one of its embodiments, may undergo a number of modifications without departing from the scope of the invention.
