Digital Sensors for Digestive Tract monitoring

Rhythmic Contractions of the Digestive Tract Can Now Be Measured with Flexible Sensors

Researchers at MIT and Brigham and Women’s Hospital have built a flexible sensor that adheres to the lining of the stomach or intestine and measures the rhythmic contractions of the digestive tract. Such sensors can help doctors to diagnose digestive disorders that impair the motility of the digestive tract. Further, they can be used to measure the food intake in patients treated for obesity. These flexible sensors are based on piezoelectric materials, which generate a current and voltag
