BODYCAP e-Celsius ingestible connected device has received medical CE mark from the LNE Gmed certifying organization. Electronic pill allows core temperature monitoring of medical patients and is now commercially available for hospital use. The class IIb medical device enables monitoring of the body’s core temperature, with continuous measurement of the patient’s central temperature by gastrointestinal tract. The disposable electronic capsule is coated in a biocompatible medical grade plastic. When swallowed by the patient it follows the intestinal transit. Every 30 seconds, the pill wirelessly transmits internal temperature measurements to a monitor called e-Viewer. http://www.bodycap-medical.com
