MIT Electronic Pill - Pufferfish Modeled

Expands and Monitors Stomach Health MIT E-Pill MIT has developed an ingestible e-pill that is jello-like and expands just like a pufferfish.  It stops in the stomach in place to take readings overtime. This new e-pill overcomes the limits of other e-pills that just past through the system. New, Expanding E-Pill  Monitor This is a medical device at the cutting edge.  Composed of two types of hydrogels, the pill expands to take stomach readings for thirty days.  It's a quickly expanding pill to monitor your stomach health.  It's been tested in animals and its sensors stay in place for 30 days to monitor the stomach. Other Potential Use The MIT team believes several e-pills expanding in the stomach could serve as a weight loss system.  The jello like substance would make the stomach feel full and reduce appetite.  This cutting edge innovation is under development and testing for commercial applications.

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 on 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 monitors 24/7.  It sends the data real-time to a monitor that displays on a cell phone. Every 5 minutes it also displa
