Someone may have posted about this already, but in any case -- The vibrating capsule (an experimental treatment for chronic constipation) is now being tested in clinical trials in the US.  So, if anyone is interested, they seem to be recruiting at a number of sites across the country:

thanks, kc99.

 

 it's good to know that there are clinical trials for this going on here in the usa.  i have several conditions that would exclude me from participating.


these are just my own thoughts. for expert medical advice please contact a health care professional.

Yep, that seems to be the catch with so many of these trials...They're looking for "pure" idiopathic constipation.  I understand the rationale, from a scientific standpoint.  Maybe if something is successful then one day they'll try it in people with more complicated conditions, also.
