In this paper, the pressure monitoring telemetry system has been designed and implemented for an accurate pressure measure-ment inside the gastrointestinal tract with minimizing pain and inconvenience. The system is composed of a miniaturized pres-sure measurement capsule and an external receiver. The per-formance of the telemetry capsule for monitoring pressure in the gastrointestinal tract is demonstrated by the results of animal in-vivo experiments.
