Bottom Line: An automated monitoring system for home health care has been designed for an experimental house in Japan called the Welfare Techno House (WTH).Automated electrocardiogram (ECG) measurements can be taken while in bed, in the bathtub, and on the toilet, without the subject's awareness, and without using body surface electrodes.In order to evaluate this automated health monitoring system, overnight measurements were performed to monitor health status during the daily lives of both young and elderly subjects.

Figure 5: Toilet weight-monitoring system.

Mentions: Body weight and excreta weights were obtained using a weight measuring system that contained four load cells (weight capacity: 200 kgf; resolution: <5 gf [6]). As shown in Fig. (5), the weight-measuring platform was installed in the floor of the toilet, and the seat was supported so that the weight on the seat was transferred to the load cell. Body weight data can be collected automatically many times each day using this system. In addition, the amounts of urine and feces, and the urine flow rate were monitored, along with habits of urination and evacuation.
