The Vibrant capsule provides chemical-free and safe treatment for patients suffering from constipation. The capsule’s vibration inside the GI tract mechanically induces peristalsis, thus aiding in treating constipated patients without side effects.
During Vibrant’s phase II study, the capsule was administered to 28 chronically constipated patients (suffering from both Chronic Idiopathic Constipation and Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Constipation) for 7 weeks, without any side effect or safety concern. The mean increase in the number of spontaneous bowel movements (SBM) per week was 1.6 SBM/week (the average number of SBM/week went from 2.19 at baseline to 3.79), showing effective relief of constipation in 88.5% of patients.
Constipation relief is achieved by the capsule’s vibrations 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. The capsule is activated by a base unit that transfers the data 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.
