This paper proposes a simple wireless multi-waveform Urinary Electrical Stimulator (UES) to stimulate electrically patients with urinary incontinence. This system can generate a set of different programmable bipolar and monopolar waveforms, since pulse generator systems most provide different waveforms suitable for each individual patient [1]. This application discloses 6 distinct types of programmable waveforms. The waveform parameters can be modified by physician changing easy instructions with a software interface (SI). The proposed system lets long distance manipulation of the waveform generator by sending codes that change the characteristics of the waveforms even when the stimulator is implanted in the patientpsilas body. The waveforms used in this work can be applied in other electrical-stimulations in body or tissues. We will show that a multi-waveform stimulator can be built with common electronic circuits. The paper discusses the waveforms code generator in UES consisting on a Radio Frequency device connected between a multi-waveform stimulator and the nerves.
