Smart Toilet – Smart Data
Clever toilets will soon track sickness, sleeping habits and substance use above and above cardiac rhythm and exercise. The career path to becoming a stool analyst is not well-used, but human waste research will produce pioneering health outcomes. The trend is that people would be health administrators on their own. In the 1980s, manufacturer Toto created the "intelligent toilet" with equipment which can warm and clean you in toilet by pressing one key. Entrepreneurs like BrookPad claim that smart toilets will revolutionize personal health by making precision medicine more available and affordable to consumers.
“The use of nearly real-time data analysis and machine learning algorithms integrated into BrookPad Smart Toilet in the near future will provide more accurate data on health. That can help speed up detecting many diseases so that early treatment can be initiated.”, BrookPad Lab says.
BrookPad Labs is developing SplashLet 2.0, a smart toilet seat that can be mounted in minutes, just like the regular version of SplashLet – electronic toilet. SplashLet 2.0 uses sensor technology to study and control the continuum of urinary and digestive conditions. By taking optical waste measurements and evaluating data for symptoms of disease and disorder, the company says that SplashLet 2.0 has the potential to diagnose dehydration, viral infection, and urinary tract infections, one of the most common infections faced by seniors.
It is possible to obtain a much clearer understanding of the microbiome and the changing nature of time with stool study. Machine Learning is undoubtedly the word you've used. This word may sound confusing, but it is a general method of converting data into insightful information. It is possible to construct mathematical models to make predictions using training data and machine learning algorithms. For example, intestinal microbiota consists of between 500 and 1000 organisms, which is a lot. The gastrointestinal microbiome, which is controlled by the composition of the diet and the nutritional status, affects the maintenance of the proper functioning of the body. Data can be used to research and discover patterns. Toilet can be a broad source of data that can be used to improve your health screening and alert you when something goes wrong. Research Lab is researching SplashLet's next generation and plans to market it to general customers as early as 2022.
More Data Better Results
It is possible to examine urine to see what it could say about various lifestyle variables. Urinary analysis can provide information about intake of coffee, and even indicate how much we were exercising. These powerful tools can track glucose levels, differentiate between viral and bacterial infections, and recognize signs of inflammation and metabolic disorders and signs of kidney disease and cancer
Due to the costs, only a few private people, including medical institutions such as hospitals and high-level living facilities, use second-generation smart toilets. A smart toilet that checks biometrics is a future for the health industry. There is no next generation smart toilet that can collect and process biometric data available for wide consumer market. Market wearables like Smart Watch are powerful and so many people use them, but for example, they don't tell you how much we use caffeine, alcohol or drugs.
It is not the most economically or technically practical idea to incorporate a laboratory into the house. The second generation of smart toilets will, however, rely on sensor technology. It is possible to provide enough information to track what is happening in a human digestive system using a less costly sensor and a sophisticated data processing system. Further research on the potential benefits of using this technology will soon provide people with more information to inform their decisions on personal health. BrookPad Lab is able to move smart toilets to the near-function consumer market. We're moving to a world where technology gives us more information about wellbeing.
