SmartPill is a single-use capsule that you swallow at your physician’s office. The capsule travels through your GI tract and wirelessly transmits data about your GI tract to a recorder worn on a belt clip or lanyard. The data collected by SmartPill allow your physician to thoroughly evaluate the transit time of your entire GI tract without using radiation. Because SmartPill does not require sedation, after swallowing the SmartPill capsule, you are able to resume most of your normal daily activities while test data are collected.
If you experience unexplained gastrointestinal (GI) problems such as nausea, bloating, constipation, abdominal pain or vomiting, SmartPill offers a convenient way to measure important information related to these problems.
After ingesting the SmartPill capsule, you will be able to resume most of your normal daily activities.
- Improves comfort compared to existing diagnostic tests
