In October 2023, we presented at American College of Gastroenterology (ACG2023), the first collaboration of Coprata with the Center of GI Physiology & Motility at Mount Sinai with co-author Yuying Luo, MD. Other collaborators on the study were Duke University and gastroenterology specialist Jose Ruiz, MD.
A study of users of the Coprata Smart Toilet recorded data from the bowel movements of 6 healthy subjects over 8 months. This study achieved hassle-free and objective monitoring of bowel movement over a prolonged period. We demonstrated feasibility of stool image data collection and analysis. Our system was able to detect when bowel movements were of abnormal consistency, either loose or constipated.
