From: Gastric transit and small intestinal transit time and motility assessed by a magnet tracking system

Subject ID Fasting Postprandial
  Fast movements (> 15 cm min-1) Slow movements (< 15 cm min-1) Very slow movements (< 1.5 cm min-1) Mean contraction frequency (min-1) Mean progression velocity (cm min-1) Fast movements (> 15 cm min-1) Slow movements (< 15 cm min-1) Very slow movements (< 1.5 cm min-1) Mean contraction frequency (min-1) Mean progression velocity (cm min-1)

  1. Progression (cm) and duration (min) of fast (> 15 cm min-1), slow (between 1.5 and 15 cm min-1), and very slow (< 1.5 cm min-1) movements during fast and after a standard meal. The mean progression velocities during two hours are also given.
