NUtech Ventures presents the Breakthrough Invention of the Year award to Ben Terry and the Intuitive Sensor Implantation System.
This technology is a capsule–based system for implanting biometric sensors in the gastrointestinal tract. The capsule travels through the intestines until reaching the implantation site, where the sensor-containing portion of the capsule attaches to the intestinal wall and the bulk of the capsule is passed naturally. The sensor may be in communication with a smart phone, tablet, smart watch, or computer for continuous and real-time data monitoring. The embedded sensor will later slough off and pass naturally. The capsule can implant any biosensor for diagnosis or long-term monitoring of physiological conditions. Alternatively, the capsule may be used to implant long-term drug delivery devices.
