Abstract:

The Ingestible Electronically Controlled Drug-delivery System consists of electronically design capsule that navigates the digestive system by assessing human pH levels, which it reads through pH sensors. When the pH sensors identify a specified pH level that indicates arrival at the destination, the e-Capsule begins dispensing medication which it can do all immediately, in a sustained released, extended release or controlled release form. When it is activated, they send messages to a detector located on the patient's body that can send e-mails or text messages to doctors or Pharmacist notifying them the effect of medication that has been taken and they altered the medication accordingly if needed. Researchers are hopeful that this technology will improve medication observance, targeted drug delivery and drug of choice.
