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 8: A typical example of a urine monitor. The upper and lower panels show young and elderly subjects, respectively.

Mentions: Body and excreta weights were successfully measured in a non-invasive and automatic matter. Excreta weight was determined by the difference in body weight between the beginning and end of urination. Fig. (8) shows a comparison of body weight changes during urination between young and elderly subjects. The period of urination of among elderly subjects was longer than among young subjects, and in general the urine weight in elderly subjects was lower than in young ones.
