Spring Probes facilitate Wireless Endoscopy

An innovative company was designing an ingestible camera, in the shape of a pill, that when swallowed, takes images of the patient’s digestive track as it moves through their body. These images are then wirelessly transmitted out to the doctor for diagnosis. This method is easier for most patients than going through a typical endoscopy procedure. However, though the pill must be small enough to be swallowable, it must include the camera, light, batteries, and transmission circuitry, so there is essentially no room for the connections.
