The first-ever truly smart toilet -  
designed to help you live better

Multiple sensors discreetly located in the pipes of toilet.

Everything else is indistinguishable from a normal toilet

Algorithms for analysis of various metrics including stool consistency, color and more

Advanced data analytics to determine overall gut health score and identify trends

Real-time reporting and notifications
for deviations from your baseline

What's up next?

More data about stool. Crohn's and Colitis. Microbiome. Colon Cancer.

Morphological stool data is the first step of Coprata’s advanced stool analysis. The development of automatic stool sampling for biochemical analysis is currently underway. The Coprata Smart Toilet will enable hands-free collection of stool specimen, facilitating the measurement of fecal biomarkers. These biomarkers include calprotectin, which predicts flare-ups of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, as well as occult (hidden) blood detected by the Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT), a non-invasive screening for colon cancer. The stool specimen collected by Coprata’s Smart Toilet have been used for gut microbiome analysis and can be used to detect pathogens, such as C. difficile and SARS-CoV-2. With convenient access to stool specimen provided by Coprata, we envision an increase in the number of fecal biomarkers used in health screening and disease management through clinical research.
