High Tech Campus company Medimetrics is working on the world’s first electronic pill.
Described as "smart pharma" by CEO Yves Decadt, Medimetrics is working on two products: the Intellicap, a so-called "smart-pill" which delivers medication via the gastro-intestinal tract, and the "I-ring", which can stay in the body for up to a month and allows remote administering of medication.
"In terms of comfort and safety it is much better than current drugs, which are often taken orally and come with adverse side-effects", Decadt says.
Medimetrics was a winner at last year’s Accenture Innovation Awards.
