A wearable system to monitor the stomach's activity throughout the day

Researchers have developed a wearable, non-invasive system to monitor electrical activity in the stomach over 24 hours -- essentially an electrocardiogram but for the gastro-intestinal (GI) tract. Applications include monitoring GI activity for patients outside of a clinical setting, which cuts down costs. Monitoring for longer periods of time also increases the likelihood of capturing abnormal events.
