Smart pill is an ingestible capsule that offers a unique way to assess motility of the gastrointestinal tract by measuring pressure, pH, and temperature throughout the entire gastrointestinal tract. It provides gastric emptying time, small bowel transit time, colonic transit time, combined small and large bowel transit time and whole gut transit time for patients with unexplained GI symptoms. The smart pill capsule is slightly larger than a multi-vitamin and measures 26 mm x 13 mm in size. The system is comprised of capsules, a data receiver, an activation fixture, a docking station and a system computer loaded with software. As the capsule travels through the GI tract, it will collect pressure, pH and temperature data.

Smart pill is used along with various technologies depending on its purpose. It is inserted with a tiny camera that can take pictures of the digestion system to diagnose gastrointestinal abnormalities. It is used with microchips and sensors to monitor the patients. When the smart pill is swallowed, electrolytes in the body activate a signal that is transmitted to a battery-operated, adhesive Band-Aid-like a patch that is worn on the abdomen of the patient. The patch sends a signal to a smartphone or software on a server that transmits in the information to the doctor’s office, who will then download the collected information onto a system computer. The smart pill makes its way through the entire gastrointestinal track while recording up to 16 hours of data.

Scientists are working on a smart pill whose copper-zinc battery will use stomach acid as the electrolyte. MIT tested a similar approach in a pig. It was found to be better than using lithium-ion batteries in Smart Pills.
