The SmartPill Capsule Motility Procedure is an exciting advancement in gastrointestinal healthcare. SmartPill is a wireless, ingestible capsule that measures pressure, pH and temperature data from your GI tract and wirelessly transmits that information to a data receiver worn on a belt or lanyard. This data is then downloaded to a computer, allowing your physician to analyze the information. SmartPill provides physicians with data for Gastric Emptying Time, Combined Small/Large Bowel Transit Time and Whole Gut Transit Time.
With just one capsule, your physician can obtain the information needed to better evaluate your condition.
SmartPill is more comfortable and less invasive than many traditional GI procedures. The SmartPill procedure requires only a short 15-30 minute office visit after which you can return to your daily activities. With SmartPill, there is no exposure to radiation and no hospital visit required as with traditional test methods.
