The trials have been performed on 12 male and 12 female pigs, their average weight was 61 kg. Each procedure was preceded by three days of training. The animals were given general anesthesia (sodium phenobarbital, 30 mg \ kg). At the beginning the procedure was carried out through the anus, then through the mouth. Examination of the gastrointestinal tract was carried out at both sides.
Information on Human Trails would be available after their completion.

It took only 25 minutes to enter depth of 9 meters through the mouth, and 35 minutes to insert Endoscope trough the anus.
Each time the endoscope was retracted (15-20 times) so we could better understand the mechanism of promotion and personal injuries.
