The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - NEWS -

There’s good news for peo­ple with chronic con­sti­pa­tion: help is on the way in the form of a vi­brat­ing cap­sule. De­vel­oped by Is­raeli com­pany Vi­brant, the cap­sule sends vi­bra­tions through the large in­tes­tine to stim­u­late di­ges­tion-friendly stom­ach con­trac­tions. A re­cent study by Au­gusta Univer­sity in the US re­vealed that peo­ple who took the cap­sule had twice as many bowel move­ments as those who didn’t. If fu­ture stud­ies are able to repli­cate the find­ings, the high-tech pill could hit the mar­ket in as lit­tle as three years.
