Title
(EN) ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED PILL
(FR) PILULE CONTROLEE ELECTRONIQUEMENT
Abstract
(EN)
An electronically controlled pill (100) or medicament delivery system is provided. The pill (100) includes a housing (102); a medicament reservoir (104) for storing a medicament; an electronically controlled release valve, pump or hatch (106) for dispensing one or more medicaments stored in the medicament reservoir (104) while traversing the gastrointestinal tract; decision and control logic circuitry (108) for opening and closing the valve (106); a battery (109); and at least one sensor (110). The decision and control logic circuitry (108) opens and closes the valve (106) in accordance with sensed conditions by the at least one sensor (110).
