In the near future, the approach to the treatment of various diseases may change dramatically due to the emergence of "electronic pills." One of these was recently developed by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). A small gadget needs to be swallowed, after which it will provide medicines for a long time and even diagnose your health condition. Moreover, the tablet without problems can be controlled remotely.
According to the developers, the device can be used to provide patients with medicines for various diseases requiring long-term treatment. In this case, the capsule can also detect any violations of the state of health and release drugs for the treatment of the desired disease. For example, antihistamines with the development of allergies.
The tablet is made using the method of layer-by-layer 3D printing and this allows it to “open up” in the stomach after swallowing, and also, as the layers become thinner, are eliminated from the body 36 days after the start of use. Internal compartments can be filled with any preparations depending on the situation, and sensors via Bluetooth will transmit data to a smartphone, tablet or other user device with a special application. From there you can remotely control the actions of the tablet.
“OUR LOCAL NAME”
The authors also thought about the cybersecurity of the device.
“SELF-ISOLATION OF A WIRELESS SIGNAL CAN PROTECT THE DEVICE AGAINST UNDESIRABLE CONNECTIONS, PROVIDING PHYSICAL INSULATION FOR ADDITIONAL SAFETY AND PRIVACY PROTECTION.”
At the moment, the tablet has not yet been tested in humans. The first series of tests was conducted on a special layout, copying the upper sections of the gastrointestinal tract. But scientists argue that full-fledged experiments can be completed in the next two years. A source
