Electronic Capsule Potentially Big Diagnostic and Dietary Tech
RMIT University's e-Capsule

New e-Pill
In Australia, RMIT University scientists have developed an ingestible electronic capsule.  It provides a potentially powerful diagnostic technique and unique information into the effects of diet and medical supplements. The pill is loaded with highly advanced sensors that monitor and measure.

Individualized, Precision Diets
The e-capsule could help to develop individualized, precision diets.  It precisely monitors what's present in the stomach and intestinal track, including oxygen, CO², hydrogen and microbes.  According to the RMIT scientists, it safely and accurately measures the effects of diet - what's working and what isn't.  The e-pill also has the potential of working as a powerful diagnostic tool.

24/7 Info On Cell Phone
The e-capsule monitor 24/7.  It sends the data real-time to a monitor that displays in a cell phone. Every 5 minutes it also displays the info in a hand-held monitor.  This breakthrough device could have significant value for personalized medicine including individualized drug therapies.
