Drones for Endoscopy –
Full Interactive 3D Navigation of Capsule Drones through the Gastrointestinal Tract
About the project
The entire gastrointestinal (GE) tract has many, frequent and severe diseases. Stomach cancer is one of the most threatening cancers in China, and colon cancer is one of the most dangerous cancer types worldwide. As the acceptance and clinical effort in traditional endoscopy is quite high, the project aims to reduce costs, to open the method making it available for all patients and to increase the acceptance for screening exams. As shown in clinical studies, the gastroenterologist can guide capsule drones through the GE tract replacing conventional endoscopy. The next step will be the development of a serial product for mass production of capsule drone endoscopy.
PROJECT UPDATE: In the meantime, the project has found an investor who will accompany the further development of the project on the condition of exclusivity. Together with the tandem, we are pleased about this successful turnaround. Consequently, the project is no longer available for further networking events.
