Market Research Report -- Patient Comfort & High Potential Applications in Healthcare Driving Smart Pill Market

Rockville, MD | Posted on November 16th, 2012

Gastro-Intestinal (GI) disorders are becoming more prevalent in our day to day life owing changing lifestyles, dietary habits and aging population. The effective therapeutics and sources or unknown causes of bleeding for some of the GI disorders are still an enigma to the medical industry due to lack of effective medical devices that reach the contours of the small intestine. Although there are flexible endoscopes, they still cause discomfort to the patients due to insertion of a wired tube into the body. The advancements in the field of medical science and technology and the emergence of micro and nanotechnology have paved the way for miniaturized wireless capsule endoscopes, also called as capsule endoscopes. These micro capsules can also be used for site-specific drug delivery and effective patient monitoring. This novel approach, enabled by Bio-MEMS, is called as Smart Pills. This technology is not only comfortable for patients, but also enables the healthcare providers to take on-time remedical action effectively.

Developments under smart pill technology are in juvenile stage. Currently, Capsule endoscopes are available in the market. This small capsule is incorporated with color camera, battery, light source and transmitter for effective image management. Other new functionalities are integrated inside the capsules for various medical applications.
