The E-Urinal is a concept Urinal designed by Royce Zhang. Zhang visions a future where a simple trip to the bathroom can provide up to date and useful knowledge to individuals about their overall health. The design features a touch screen attached to the top of the Urinal that requires interaction before urination. Once the session has begun, the individual urinates into the E-Urinal where the built in sensors analyze the urine in real time. The E-Urinal takes various measurements that are explained below and uses these measurements to provide an overall health score.
: Is the measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution ranging from 0-14 with 7 as neutral. Lower the number higher the acidity and higher the number higher alkalinity.
SG (Specific Gravity)
: Urine Specific Gravity is a laboratory test that measures the concentration of all chemical particles in the urine of liquids to other solid substances. This test can give early signs of renal diseases.
URO (Urine Urea Nitrogen):
Urine urea nitrogen is a measure of protein breakdown in the body.
: Tests for traces of blood in the urine sample.
(White Blood Cell)
: Measures the amount of white blood cells found in the urinary tract
: Tests the protein levels in the urine. (Used for detecting kidney diseases)
: Tests the levels of Glucose in the urine sample.
: Tests the amount of urine bilirubin found in the system
Used for tracking how hydrated the body is.
Essentially the E-Urinal allows individuals the benefit of getting a Urinalysis test done without the hassle of scheduling and paying for a doctor visit. By tracking the measurements mentioned above individuals will be able to attain knowledge about their bodies and take appropriate action should there be any warnings.
The E-Urinal would also allow individuals to detect evidence of diseases, even those that have not shown significant signs or symptoms(Medicine.Net). By having this technology accessible to the public on a daily basis, individuals will be alerted the moment their urine shows signs of a particular disease (such as kidney failure). This will allow people to get help and treatment immediately and in turn increase their chances of making a full recovery. The E-Urinal will save time and money. Having the E-Urinal in place for early detection will allow doctors to treat the patients before the disease progresses, for example, if the E-Urinal detected the early signs of kidney failure the patient could begin taking medicine before the kidneys had actually failed. This could save a patient from having to get a kidney transplant. Lastly, instead of peeing in a cup at a doctor visit the E-Urinal could enhance this unconformable experience.
: A urinalysis is simply an analysis of the urine. It is a very common test that can be performed in many healthcare settings including doctors' offices, urgent care facilities, laboratories, and hospitals. (Medicine.Net)
