  • Accelerations within the thorax

    A colleague of mine is interested in artificial hearts, and would like
    to know the acceleration of tissues in the vicinity of the heart when
    a person walks, jogs or falls. I am familiar with research that has placed
    accelerometers on the legs and on bite bars, but I do not know of efforts
    that would address my colleague's problem.

    I am also familiar with pills that one swallows that allow intra-abdominal
    pressure to be recorded. I was wondering if anyone was familiar with
    an "accelerometer pill" that one could swallow that would record
    accelerations within the stomach during various physical activities.

    If anyone has information that could assist, could you please send it
    to Renee Gerhart at:

    Thanks, Brian
