Check-Cap's capsule device, also named Check-Cap, is based on a novel imaging approach that enables the 3D virtual reconstruction of the colon, eliminating the need for bowel preparation. The imaging capsule, which resembles a vitamin capsule in its size and shape, is easy to swallow and is designed to wirelessly transmit data to a small receiver that is no bigger than a disposable patch on the patient back. Wireless capsules need to satisfy the requirement of the two key stakeholders in the market the patients and the physicians. From the perspective of the patient, the capsule has to do away with, or at least significantly ease the most bothersome aspect of the current screening procedure, namely, bowel preparation. They also have to be small enough for easy oral administration and unhindered mobility through the gastrointestinal track.
