Abstract:
(EN) A device and method for illuminating, viewing and monitoring internal body surfaces without an external attachment is disclosed. The present device includes a housing that is suitable for swallowing by the patient or by placement with an endoscope, either through the working lumen or attached to the endoscope. The device has an optical or sensor element coupled to the housing that can be used for illuminating, visualizing or monitoring a body surface. A power source may be located in the housing to provide power to the optical or sensor element. The device may be secured to the body using securement elements.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif et un procédé pour éclairer, visualiser et surveiller des surfaces corporelles internes sans fixation externe. Le présent dispositif comprend un boîtier qui est adapté pour être avalé par le patient ou pour être placé avec un endoscope, soit à travers la lumière de travail, soit fixé à l'endoscope. Le dispositif comporte un élément optique ou de détection couplé au boîtier qui peut être utilisé pour éclairer, visualiser ou surveiller une surface corporelle. Une source d'énergie peut être située dans le boîtier afin de fournir de l'énergie à l'élément optique ou de détection. Le dispositif peut être fixé au corps en utilisant des éléments de fixation.
