Current Wireless Capsule Endoscopic systems (WCE) provide only diagnostic tools, but in the future, advanced functionalities such as controllable drug delivery could be available for clinicians. This work introduces a Magnetic Drug Delivery Capsule (MDDC). The MDCC is based on a coil actuation mechanism that enables the deployment of a drug chamber from the device body. In this work, we present the prototype design and the results of bench trials that demonstrated the device ability to triggerdoi:10.1016/j.proeng.2015.08.564 fatcat:h2yn5y5we5bmjig4gauy66jz7a
