Seminar description

The project aims to collect and analyze acoustic emissions from the digestive system by using wearable sensors and prototypes developed at the Chair.

GI sounds recording is a non-invasive method that allows us to gain insight into the gastro-intestinal functionality.

We propose to create a clinical protocol and collect data from volunteers/patients to build a first database.
