A group of Stanford researchers create a system capable of finding diseases in the urine and faeces

3.0 toilets are ready to reach connected homes. However, they have nothing to do with those who have a small jet of water, a heater or a dryer to avoid uncomfortable humidity.

Sanitary technology reaches the bathroom and is ready to detect possible cancers through faeces and urine. A group of researchers at Stanford University have developed a system capable of detecting disease markers.

The bowl is equipped with several devices that use motion detection to display a series of tests on user health. “At first, when we discussed it, people would laugh because it seemed like an interesting idea, but also a bit strange,” says Sanjiv Gambhir, project leader.

The system is non-invasive, as it has a network of technology that takes urine and faeces samples through video. Thanks to an algorithm, the system allows studying different parameters to discern whether the waste is healthy or not.

“The toilet can measure ten different biomarkers,” says Gambhir. Also, the system developed by researchers at the North American university includes strips or urine test to measure specific molecular characteristics. Through them, this smart toilet can perform white blood cell count, blood contamination, and individual levels of protein to anticipate a spectrum of diseases.

“The advantage is that everyone has to use the toilet, and that increases its value as a toilet device. Disease detection» Indicates a scientist. To recognize who the user is at all times, the system contains a built-in identification system. “The goal is to provide accurate and individualized health information, so we needed to make sure it could be discerned among users. To do this, we made a cistern button that reads the fingerprints, “explains Gambhir.
