Brief Summary:
Constipated patients in the participating center from February 2017 to June 2018 (anticipated) were prospectively enrolled. Number of defecation per week,Bristol score,and Colon transmission experiment were compared with the constipated patients before treatment.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chronic Constipation Device: Vibrating Capsule Device: Sham Capsule Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Constipation affects the quality of life of patients, some patients abuse laxatives or repeated medical treatment, increased medical costs. At present, the main treatment of constipation is to adjust life style, medicine, psychotherapy, biofeedback and surgical treatment. However, the above methods are associated with adverse reactions, and the patient's satisfaction is still low. A new approach is needed to solve this clinical problem.

Investigators have developed a vibration capsule that can be adjusted in different modes.

Preliminary animal experiments showed that the capsule was safe and increased the number of defecation.

This study is a clinical research for patients with constipation, to explore the effect in different vibrating modes in patients with constipation and tract emptying transmission and its effectiveness.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Sham Comparator: Sham Capsule
Patients swallowed 1 sham Vibrating capsule with water every three days,recorded his defecation time, defecation frequency and bristol score.The total capsule need to take 12.
Device: Sham Capsule
Capsules can't vibrate but look the same as Vibrating Capsule

Experimental: Vibration Capsule of low level
Patients swallowed 1 low level vibration Capsule Vibrating capsule with water every three days,recorded his defecation time, defecation frequency and bristol score.The total capsule need to take 12.
Device: Vibrating Capsule
Patients in this group would be treated with Vibrating Capsule

Experimental: Vibration Capsule of high level
Patients swallowed 1 high level vibration Capsule Vibrating capsule with water every three days,recorded his defecation time, defecation frequency and bristol score.The total capsule need to take 12.
Device: Vibrating Capsule
Patients in this group would be treated with Vibrating Capsule




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. defecation frequency [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    the average weekly defecation frequency


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Bristol Stool Chart [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    Record the BSC of each defecation.

  2. first defecation [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    The time of complete defecation after taking the capsule for the first time
