English translation:Outputs to patient's box, printer, computer.
Explanation:
"Boitier" has many possible translations depending on the context. Here, I can only guess that a generator produces some kind of signal to be sent to a device in a "box" which is applied to the patient.
TERMIUM gives "box" for: DEF – Circuit électrique, le plus souvent enfermé dans un boîtier indépendant, utilisé pour adapter la sortie des instruments de musique électriques (guitare,
clavier, etc.).

I initially translated it as box but thought that was maybe too literal. Thanks for your help!
