Study of Frictional Properties of the Small Intestine for Design of Active Capsule Endoscope

Abstract

The necessity of a self-actuation mechanism for the capsule endoscope makes it important to gain an understanding of the frictional force, which will be encountered by the capsule when it is guided through the gastrointestinal tract. We have carried out in-vitro experiments in the porcine small intestine to investigate the effect of the capsule dimension… (More)
