Can Ingestible Sensors Flush Out Stomach Diseases with Greater Efficiency? New trials out of RMIT University in Melbourne say yes, they can. They can also send real time analyses to your mobile device.

New technology has always been a game-changer when it comes to medicine, including an incredible new breakthrough in the world of diagnostic medicine. When it comes to stomach disorders, 20% of the global population suffers through incredible pain, uncomfortable medical procedures, and un-diagnosed conditions.

"The trials by researchers at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia have uncovered mechanisms in the human body that have never been seen before, including a potentially new immune system.... the ingestible capsule (the size of a vitamin pill) detects and measures gut gases - hydrogen, carbon dioxides and oxygen - in real time. This data can be sent to a mobile phone." [ READ MORE ]

The effects of this incredible invention will have a lasting, positive impact for all peoples across the globe. Not only do they reveal new insights into the human immune system, these diagnostic sensors will help us understand more about micro-biome activity and stomach gas interactions. This will lead to newfound solutions for a number of diseases, including potential remedies and detection methods for colon cancer.

For some of us, there might be a gut feeling to avoid swallowing digital technology that sends data to a cell phone or tablet. What exactly will Big Brother do with our gastrointestinal data?

When it comes to finding problems and creating solutions, most people will prefer the non-invasive approach. Using logic, it is a pretty simple decision: taking these two pills, signing into your device, and calling your doctor will trump a colonoscopy any day of the week.

Unless you enjoy collecting and documenting your own stool samples throughout the course of your treatment, ingestible sensors provide a better way for us to stomach the pain of practicing medicine.
