Brief Summary:
The primary aim of this investigation is to assess the safety, feasibility and performance of the VIPUN Balloon Catheter 0.1 in the assessment of gastric motility. The investigation will also assess whether the inflation of the VIPUN Balloon Catheter can stimulate gastric motility and emptying. Furthermore, this investigation will examine whether gastric motility and emptying as measured in this study are correlated.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety: Incidence, frequency, severity, seriousness and relatedness of AEs during the 8 hour visit. [ Time Frame: 8 hours ]
    Incidence, frequency, severity, seriousness and relatedness of AEs

  2. Feasibility: Success rate in completing the procedure (placement and removal VIPUN Balloon Catheter) during the 8 hour visit. [ Time Frame: 8 hours ]
    Success rate in completing the procedure (placement and removal VIPUN Balloon Catheter)

  3. Performance: Motility index (MI) decrease after codeine treatment vs. placebo treatment (inflated balloon) during the 8 hour visit. [ Time Frame: 8 hours ]
    Motility index (MI) decrease after codeine treatment vs. placebo treatment (inflated balloon)


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in gastric emptying: placebo vs. codeine and deflated vs. inflated balloon [ Time Frame: 8 hours ]
    To explore whether the VIPUN Balloon Catheter 0.1 can influence gastric motility and/or emptying.

  2. Correlation motility index change and gastric emptying time change: placebo vs. codeine (inflated balloon) [ Time Frame: 8 hours ]
    To explore whether there is a correlation between gastric motility and emptying.
