Pediatric Size Swallowable Glass Pill for Digestive Motility Analysis

A glass pill for digestive motility tracking with wireless communication is presented. The pill encapsulates three magnetic transmitter coils with a 125 kHz signal, the circuitry required to control the magnetic coil output and the battery. The system provides real time location of the pill inside the digestive tract of the patient using an external detector housed in a wearable jacket. The custom integrated circuit for this application reduces bill-of-materials (BOM) count and significant reduction in power consumption therefore resulting in further size reduction by adapting a smaller battery package. The outcome of the circuit integration enables the glass pill for pediatric use while providing a total pill diameter of 6 mm. The glass pill system operates continuously for 48 hours with a 1.55 V 8 mAh coin cell battery with an average power consumption of 250 microwatts.
