Further Testing

The wireless Motilitätskapsel consists of a swallowable device that continuously measures pressure and pH of the intraluminal environment, while the device travels through the gastrointestinal tract. It allows the measurement of passage of time, pressure profile and motility of the entire gastrointestinal tract and of the individual regions (stomach, small intestine, large intestine). This process can help to assess gastric emptying and the small bowel and colonic transit in patients with symptoms that are suspicious for a motility disorder.
