Scientists have created a soft device that will stimulate gastrointestinal motility 22:53

Scientists have developed a gentle pump for gastrointestinal cancer patients. Development details are explained in the magazine Advanced Functional Materials (Advanced Function Material).

Digestive tumors can block any part of the gastrointestinal tract. Often, metal tubes are used to expand it, the rigidity of which does not allow the esophagus to contract normally. In this case, food may leak into the lungs instead of the stomach.

The new soft device is equipped with powerful magnets controlled by an external driver. Their activation leads to wave-like movements of the gastrointestinal tract, which are necessary for the passage of food through the esophagus, stomach and small intestine. The device will be useful not only for patients with cancer, but also for patients with disorders of normal peristalsis.

In addition, the development of scientists could form the basis of devices for the treatment of infertility, which occurs due to the deterioration of the muscles in the fallopian tubes, where the egg leaves the ovary.
