What is CapsuleX?
CapsuleX is the newest concept of microimaging and technology that will help patients and doctors worldwide. CapsuleX is a small, pill-sized, and easy-to-digest micro wide-angle camera used to produce high-quality pictures of the patients’ esophagus, stomach, and digestive tract (including the small and large intestine). The new development of CapsuleX eliminates the need for long tubes and tedious procedures to examine the patient’s digestive system.
How Does it Work?
CapsuleX comprises multiple components, including LED lighting, a battery, a wide-angle camera, an optical dome, a microcontroller unit, a power management unit, a Flash unit, and a gyroscope component. These complex components all fit in a pill-sized digestible product that allows doctors to take remote pictures once the patient swallows the pill. The capsule is entirely wireless, eliminating the need for uncomfortable prodding of a long tube and providing high-resolution imaging with the wide-angle camera implemented inside the capsule. The LED also provides the lighting of the images due to the digestive system being almost, if not completely, dark.
