The Vibrant capsule provides chemical-free and safe treatment for patients suffering from constipation. The capsule mechanically induces peristalsis in the GI tract, thus aiding in treating constipated patients without side effects.
During Vibrant’s phase II study, the capsule was administered to chronically constipated patients (suffering from both Chronic Idiopathic Constipation and Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Constipation) for 8 weeks, without any side effect or safety concern. The mean increase in the number of complete spontaneous bowel movements (CSBM) per week was increased , showing effective relief of constipation for 35% of patients.
Constipation relief is achieved by the capsule’s stimulation on the large intestinal wall, consequently inducing natural peristaltic activity, generating additional spontaneous bowel movements.
The Vibrant capsule is easy to swallow. The capsule is controlled by an algorithm, predefined by Vibrant’s R&D team and gastroenterologists. A base unit is used to transfer the required mode of work to the capsule.
The capsule operates inside the large intestine and is washed out of the body with the bowel movement. It meets the highest safety standards, using biocompatible materials.
