Title (EN) CAPSULE WITH BLOOD DETECTING SENSOR
(FR) CAPSULE AVEC CAPTEUR DE DÉTECTION DE SANG.
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to a medical capsule being equipped with a sensor device comprising light emitting and light receiving elements. The sensor device is adapted to detect blood especially gastrointestinal bleeding on the basis of light absorption properties of the blood, wherein the capsule is provided with a casing forming a recess or gap at its outer surface. The recess has a pre-selected width which represents a fixed measuring track between the light emitting and light receiving elements being arranged at opposing sides of the recess or gap when seen in its width direction. The medical capsule is provided with a shielding plate/layer/membrane being arranged at least at or near the bottom of the recess or gap and extending along the width direction of the recess or gap preferably to exceed the recess at its both sides into its width direction to prohibit emitted light from bypassing the recess via the casing material of the capsule.
(FR) L'invention porte sur une capsule équipée d'un capteur comprenant des éléments émettant et recevant de la lumière. Le dispositif de détection détecte les saignement gastro-intestinaux, grâce à ses propriétés d'absorption de la lumière du sang. La capsule est pourvue d'un boîtier formant un espace sur la surface externe. L'espace a une largeur présélectionnée qui représente une piste de mesure fixe entre les éléments émetteurs, et récepteurs de lumière sur les côtés opposés de l'espace dans le sens de la largeur. La capsule est pourvue d'une plaque/couche/membrane de protection disposée à proximité du fond de l'espace et s'étendant sur la largeur de l'espace de préférence pour le dépasser au niveau de ses deux côtés, et empêcher la lumière émise de contourner l'espace par l'intermédiaire du matériau de l'enveloppe de la capsule.
