A Unique Endoscopic Complex Will Be Produced In Russia
July 24, 2015 23:30


A unique endoscopic complex “Landysh” surpassing its foreign analogues, a “smart” capsule for examination of the gastrointestinal tract, will for the first time be produced in Russia.

The unique production will have to satisfy the needs of the Russian medicine it this high-tech product. The complex named “Landysh” was developed by the specialists of the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI. This development includes a small single-use capsule with a power source and a color video camera, a compact transmitter attached to the patient’s belt and the computer software able to receive and interpret the data “collected” by the capsule going through the entire human gastro-intestinal tract during eight hours.

“Once clinical trials of the device are completed, the enterprise in the town of Lesnoy (the one belonging to Rosatom) will start to produce up to 300,000 capsules per year. According to our calculations, this will be enough to satisfy the needs of the country” - the Deputy Head of the engineering centre of MEPhI Konstantin Mezhankov reported. He noted that future modifications of the capsule would expand its functionality and improve the quality of research.

“Let us say, a doctor cannot sit all day long and watch each patient’s videos. We have developed a software automatically detecting damage of the gastrointestinal tract and immediately sending a signal to the doctor who should investigate the problematic area with more attention” – Mezhankov said. He also noted that if we compared the complex with the analogues from Japan and Israel, Russian software can be installed on any computer. Whereas people abroad need to buy a special computer together with the capsule, as the result, the purchase is expensive.
