The Noisy Guts Project – Is your rumbling tummy trying to tell us something?

The Noisy Guts Project – Is your rumbling tummy trying to tell us something?

If you live in Perth and have a diagnosis of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) you could be a part of groundbreaking research! 

The Noisy Guts Project is the brainchild of Nobel Laureate, Prof Barry Marshall. Based at the University of Western Australia, the team are developing an acoustic belt that records gut noises over time so doctors can accurately and non-invasively screen, diagnose and monitor gut disorders. They are starting with the diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome. 

They need study volunteers with a diagnosis of IBS to donate their gut noises. 

Volunteers, aged 18-65 years, are asked to visit the Marshall Centre at the QEII Medical Centre in Nedlands for a morning. They get to sit back and relax in one or their comfy armchairs whilst wearing the belt. Recordings are made for around two and a half hours. Weekend slots are available, and participants are reimbursed $30.
