Abstract
The Rheological Behavior of the small intestine as required for the design and operation of a robotic endoscope was discussed. With the goal of engineering a safe and reliable machine, a spirally grooved impeller has been made and the hydrodynamic mucus film formed when the impeller rotates has been used to prevent the injury to intestines and the contact between endoscope and intestine.
