Medical Video Pills

from the one-extra-step-for-mankind dept

Researchers in London have announced the construction of the "video" pill. This capsule contains a small video camera and transmitter within it, allowing doctors to view the insides of a patient much less invasively than using an endoscope. We're finally starting to see the fusion of technology with traditional medical practices, expect to see a lot more advanced medical devices in the next few years (a much better bet than genomics companies, which will have about a 5 year span before products start rolling out).

      I am looking for information on the video pill. Any chance you got an answer regarding the company working on this. I read that it's called the 'M2A' but cannot find anything on this either. Thanks
