Abstract:
The invention relates to openable closure devices for the urethra. These are characterized in particular by a simple handling. For this purpose, a permanent magnet and an electromagnet are arranged such that the urethra is located between the permanent magnet and the electromagnet. Furthermore, the electromagnet, in the form of a pressure magnet, is connected to a power source via a non-contact switch in such a way that, if there no current flowing through the electromagnet, the urethra is closed due to the magnetic field. And, when current is flowing, the resulting magnetic fields of both the permanent magnet and the electromagnet, causes distance to be at least partially increased, thus causing the urethra to open.
Claim 1:
An openable closure device for the urethra, characterized in that a permanent (5) and an electromagnet (4) are arranged such that the urethra (2) is located between the permanent magnet (5) and the electromagnet (4); that the electromagnet (4), in the form of a pressure magnet, is connected to a power source via a switch (7) which can be actuated in a contactless manner; that in the case of no electric current flowing, the continuous (5) and the electromagnet (4), due to the action of the magnetic field of the continuous magnet (5), cause the urethra (2) to close; that in the case of electric current flowing, due to the action of the magnetic field of the continuous magnet (5) as well as the electromagnet (4), the distance is partially increased, thus causing the urethra (2) to open.
