That is why scientists have developed a sensor package for the toilet that can turn it into a smart toilet with the ability to analyse the faeces and urine allowing you to monitor your health without any extra effort. They have developed three fully automated toilet modules that can be mounted onto existing toilets — urinalysis, uroflowmetry, and stool analysis — to acquire basic properties such as temporal parameters of urination and defecation, morphology of stool, flow parameters of urination, biochemical constituents of urine of human excreta. Using this data, the smart toilet has the potential to help diagnose irritable bowel syndrome, benign prostatic hyperplasia and urinary tract infection. Urinalysis: Researchers integrated a ten-parameter urinalysis test strip into the toilet system to provide qualitative and semi-quantitative analysis of ten biomarkers— erythrocytes, urobilinogen, bilirubin, protein, nitrite, ketones, glucose, pH, specific gravity and leukocytes. Uroflowmeter: The computer-vision uroflowmeter uses two high-speed cameras GoPro Hero 7 and GoPro positioned at two fixed locations close to and facing away from the user to record a series of frame of the urine system. It uses the spinning-disk principle to measure the following metrics— voiding time, time to maximum flow, maximum flow rate, average flow rate and total voided volume.

Your personal assistant for puppy potty training! Being a puppy parent is the most wonderful experience, except, housebreaking. The key to housetraining your puppy is a consistent schedule. I like that my daughter and I can both log for the same puppy. I also like that it is fast. One button entries make it very quick and easy to enter and again communicate across a family.
This smart toilet recognizes your butt and analyzes poo for diseases
An experimental toilet out of Stanford University identifies users by their finger and anal prints while gathering data for urine and stool analysis, a new study reports. Basic toilets seem extra boring after learning about an experimental smart toilet that detects health problems. Going to the bathroom could end up relieving your health anxieties as well as your bladder.
