Title: (DE) VERFAHREN SOWIE KAPSEL ZUR FERNMESSUNG.
(EN) TELEMETRY CAPSULE AND PROCESS.
(FR) PROCEDE ET CAPSULE DE TELEMESURE.
Abstract:
(EN) An ingestible capsule and process for delivery, particularly repeatable delivery, of a medicament to the alimentary canal is disclosed wherein an essentially nondigestible capsule (1) contains an electric energy emitting means (2), a radio signal transmitting means (3), a medicament storage means (6) and a remote actuatable medicament releasing means (4). The capsule signals a remote receiver (8) as it progresses through the alimentary tract in a previously mapped route and upon reaching a specified site is remotely triggered to release a dosage of medicament.
(FR) Capsule administrable par voie orale et procédé d'administration, notamment d'administration à plusieurs reprises, d'un médicament au tube digestif. Une capsule essentiellement non digestible (1) contient un émetteur (2) électrique d'énergie, un émetteur (3) de signaux radio, un dispositif (6) de stockage d'une médicament, et un dispositif (4) télécommandé de libération du médicament. La capsule envoie des signaux à un récepteur à distance (8) à mesure qu'elle passe dans le tube digestif en suivant un trajet défini à l'avance, et lorsqu'elle atteint un site spécifique, on l'actionne par télécommande afin qu'elle libère une dose du médicament.
