Alimetry, a spin-out of New Zealand's Auckland Bioengineering Institute (ABI) and the Faculty of Medical & Health Sciences (FMHS) has received FDA approval for a non-invasive device for the diagnosis of gut disorders.


Alimetry’s unique technology harnesses the power of stretchable electronics, wearables, digital health, and cloud-based analytics to deliver a completely non-invasive diagnostic tool.


Worn over the stomach, the device consists of a stretchable array containing electrodes that collects data by non-invasively sensing the activity of the stomach from the body surface.
