Ingested Flexible Sensors to Detect Digestive Tract Issues
Flexible sensors can now be rolled up and swallowed to monitor digestive tract disease, found a research team at MIT, Brigham and Women''s Hospital. Such sensors could help doctors to diagnose gastrointestinal disorders that slow down the passage of food through the digestive tract. They could also be used to detect food pressing on the stomach, helping doctors to monitor food intake by patients being treated for obesity.
