Pillcam With Legs – Inner Space Next!
Those of you that need this explaining, it’s basically a camera thatÂ is just about swallowable.Â Then as it meanders through your system appearingÂ out the other end it feeds pics back to the doctor.
But now there’sÂ a remote controlled version!
Those scary but tiny legsÂ allow doctors to steer it about the place up to a pointÂ and thus getting a more accurate update of where your bits and pieces might be malfunctioning.
Currently,Â due to the size of these things, they’re limitedÂ to trek around Gastro-Intestinal tubes, these being bigger and stronger than most in your innards.
Given Imaging, the Israeli company behind this tech,Â are looking to shrinkÂ it down to a moreÂ palatableÂ size.
It can’t be that far off until the term ‘micro-surgeon’ means just that 😉
