The ambition of eCAP is to facilitate a shift in GI diagnostics from its current unscalable analogue version to a patient centred e-health tool by leveraging the rapidly growing field of connected medical devices for remote patient monitoring. To achieve the project aims, the following objectives have been set:
Objective 1: Create a smart capsule with multiple sensors to detect biochemical and physiologic events associated with GI disorders.
Objective 2: Integrate the capsule with an e-health platform that will facilitate result interpretation.
Objective 3: Validate eCAP technology in patients suffering from gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
Objective 4: Transfer eCAP technology in different settings (France, Ukraine and Kenya) for clinical evaluation and to assess its economic impact via cost-effective analysis.
