Abstract

See full text

Fabricating a transducer system (FIGS. 1a-1b) for providing electromagnetic therapeutic stimulation to a target area of a patient's body includes forming a primary winding (71) having a selected number of turns. The primary winding (71) and any other windings (72, 73) are bonded together to form a winding bundle (32). The winding bundle (32) is encapsulated in a malleable shell (34) that is substantially triangular in shape. Control electronics (16, 40, 94) are coupled to the shell-encapsulated winding bundle (30, 70, 90) for selectively generating electromagnetic fields, and thus implementing a prescribed electromagnetic therapy.
