The Noisy Guts team is developing an acoustic belt that records gut noises over time so doctors can accurately screen and diagnose gut disorders.

Noisy Guts Project - Using the natural noise of gut for health screening.

The team was initially inspired by acoustic sensing technology designed to pick up the munching sounds of termites.

Our research shows a strong correlation between gut noises and specific gut disorders. Noisy Guts' belt is a safe, non-invasive screening, monitoring and diagnostic tool.

With a current focus on differentiating between Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Inflammatory Bowel Disease and healthy gut sounds, they hope to extend their technology to other gastro-intestinal conditions.
