Abstract

We have developed a novel, low-cost and non-invasive medical device called “human gas sensor capsule” which has applications in diagnostics of gastrointestinal disorders and assessing dietary effects on the gut. The product is a capsule size indigestible electronic device that leaves the body after normal bowel transient. The capsule consists of gas sensors, micro-electronic circuits, small-sized harmless batteries and telecommunication components. The capsule allows for the accurate measurement of the concentrations four vital gases of O2, H2, CO2 and CH4 and also temperature. Intestinal gas profiles are then transmitted to an external small handheld device that communicates with a smart-phone that allows a real-time data display and analysis. We have successfully finished the animal and the first phase of human trials. The outcomes of these trials will be presented in detail in the talk. The outcomes show some extraordinary phenomena that can potentially revolutionise the fields of gastroenterology and food sciences
