(EN) ENDOSCOPIC CAPSULE
(FR) CAPSULE D'ENDOSCOPIE
Abstract:
(DE) Endoskopiekapsel, enthaltend wenigstens ein mit einem externen Magnetfeld wechselwirkendes magnetisches Element zur magnetischen Navigation der Endoskopiekapsel, wobei an ihr ein aus einem flexiblen und nicht schubsteifen Material bestehender Schlauch (13) angeordnet ist, über den der Kapsel (1) flüssige oder gasförmige Betriebs- oder Arbeitsmittel zuführbar sind, und/oder in dem wenigstens eine der Signal- oder Stromleitung dienende Leitung (17a, 17b, 17c) zur Kapsel (1) geführt ist.
(EN) The invention relates to an endoscopic capsule which comprises at least one magnetic element, interacting with an external magnetic field, for magnetically navigating the endoscopic capsule. The invention is characterized in that a tube (13), produced from a flexible and non-rigid material, is arranged on said capsule, and is used to feed liquid or gaseous operating or working media to the capsule (1), and/or accommodates a line (17a, 17b, 17c) for signal or current conduction towards the capsule (1).
(FR) La présente invention concerne une capsule d'endoscopie contenant au moins un élément magnétique qui interagit avec un champ magnétique externe pour permettre une navigation magnétique de la capsule d'endoscopie. Un tuyau (13) constitué d'une matière flexible et non rigide au cisaillement, situé sur la capsule d'endoscopie, permet d'apporter des ressources ou des substances actives liquides ou gazeuses à la capsule (1) et/ou inclut au moins une conduite (17a, 17b, 17c) qui sert à conduire des signaux ou du courant et qui est guidée jusqu'à la capsule (1).
