Israeli start-up develops toilet that detects kidney disease and diabetes

A toilet developed by an Israeli startup turns your bathroom into a laboratory, capable of detecting various diseases and monitoring health through urine. The high-tech seat was created by the company Olive Diagnostics and promises to analyze the user’s urine for early signs of diabetes, chronic kidney disease, bladder cancer, urinary tract infection and dehydration – through a spectrometer that measures electromagnetic radiation waves.

Titled Olive KG, the innovation uses a sensor to “examine” urine during peeing.

According to the startup, the innovation titled Olive KG is “the first device based on artificial intelligence and spectroscopy that offers constant and non-invasive monitoring of urine samples”, as an “effective alternative to chemical analysis and standard microscopic”. . To do this, the sensor present in the toilet sends different frequencies of light through the urine while it is in motion, during peeing.

Due to the frequency of checks, the novelty is presented as safer than the traditional examination

In this way, the technology is able to detect protein, blood, nitrate, pH levels, as well as urine density, volume, pressure, color and frequency. According to the company’s disclosure, Olive KG’s “exams” are better than regular lab tests because they monitor a user’s every trip to the bathroom, not just a single sample.

The company points out that urine is a great indicator of possible health issues, such as excess sodium in the body, which can be measured by body fluids. The Olive KG is particularly suitable for the elderly or those in recovery, as the information can be sent directly to doctors or clinics, allowing more efficient monitoring, in addition to offering an application that connects the toilet to a smartwatch.
