Vibrant Announces Chemical-Free Vibrating Capsule for Patients Suffering from Constipation
PetachTikva, Israel, June 25, 2012. Vibrant Ltd., a medical device company, today announced a chemical-free capsule for patients suffering from constipation.
The capsules, mechanically operated, aid in treating constipated patients without side effects. The mechanical capsule meets the highest safety standards, using biocompatible materials
Constipation relief is achieved by the capsule’s vibrations on the large intestinal wall, consequently inducing peristaltic activity, generating spontaneous additional bowel movement. The easy-to-swallow capsule is controlled through algorithms, predefined by Vibrant’s R&D and gastroenterologist.
The capsule is activated by a base unit that transfers the data of the predefined algorithm into the capsule, before it is swallowed. The capsule operates inside the large intestine and is washed out of the body with the bowel movement.
“The Vibrant capsule represents a revolution in the treatment of constipation and meets the strong demand of those suffering from chronic constipation with a successful and affordable treatment,” said Lior Ben-Tsur, Vibrant’s Chief Executive Officer.
Vibrant has successfully completed an initial stage of the clinical trial with positive results, and is currently conducting additional clinical trials preparing for CE Mark approval.
