Presented in mid-January, the new intelligent toilet Toto Wellness Toilet is the first on the market to directly analyze your droppings to screen for diseases. The brand, which designed the toilet with Stanford University, explains that the device “Scans what comes out of your body along with key metrics to provide you with wellness recommendations from the simple routine of sitting on the toilet”.

Initially, the brand spoke only of “well-being”, but according to Europe 1 Toto has improved its copy, to the point that thewe are really entering the field of health. The integrated sensors of the toilet make it possible to “Detect, for example, the onset of colorectal cancer, urinary tract infection or kidney problems”, relieves Europe 1.

Toto should launch this smart toilet by the end of 2021

The objective is therefore to detect serious ailments well in advance in order to increase the chances of recovery. This WC is connected. It can send the data to a laboratory and / or doctor to establish a medical diagnosis. As an example, Europe 1 explains that a doctor could contact you directly “If the system detects blood in the urine”. They may also advise you to eat more fiber if it detects problems in your diet.

To believe our colleagues from Europe 1, this improved version of the Toto Wellness Toilet is closer to close to a commercial launch than we thought. Initially, the brand hadn’t revealed everything about the product – and everything still exuded the concept. Toto had suddenly announced an availability from here “a few years”. But in its article published Wednesday February 24, 2021 Europe 1 affirms that the arrival of this type of toilet will intervene “In principle by the end of the year. First in clinics and nursing homes ”.

It is thus possible that Toto quickly launches a truly medical version intended for these establishments, before considering a general public release with a product that is no doubt a little less complete. We obviously expect to learn more with official information from Toto in the coming weeks. This type of product could meet with some success among the general public sensitive to health features such as ECG on Samsung watches.

The only real barrier to buying this type of product may nevertheless be its price. As a more sophisticated Japanese toilet than the rest, it is expected to be priced the highest in the Toto range. One of the most expensive current models, the Washlet SG, is offered in France for nearly 4000 euros.
