Thankyou to all that responded! In short, no-one seems to know
where one can buy "Pressure Telemetry Pills for IAP
measurement". Although they have been readily available in the
past.

Any further responses/comments would be welcomed!

Thanks again for the help so far!

COPIES OF MESSAGES:
Scott,

Back in the distant past (circa 1970) there was a book RS Mackay,
Biomedical Telemetry, which described how to make "radio pills"
amongst
other telemeters.

No doubt technology has moved on since then, but it may be a
start.

Scott,
While I have not personally used these "radio telemetry pills", I
just
finished reading an artical in "Spine", Vol. 18, Number 14, pp 2097-
2105,
1993 entitled "The Development of Response Strategies in
Preparation for
Sudden Loading to the Torso" by S.A. Lavender, W.S. Marras, and
R.A. Miller
in which they used these pills to measure average peritoneal cavity
pressure. The producer of these pills was given as Remote Control
Systems
Ltd. (London). Lavender can be reached at:
Orthopedic Surgery
Rush-St. Luke's Medical Center
1653 West Congress Parkway
