Bloo reveals 'health check' loo on World Toilet Day

 

It commissioned research which has resulted in a 30-page future report which revealed by 2050, toilets will offer health check MOTs.

According to James Wallmann, WCs will help people improve life longevity by anticipating harmful diseases and deficiencies from human waste.

The results will be cleverly projected via a hologram in front of people’s eyes, with suggested lifestyle changes.

The toilet will support people’s immune systems by analysing the contents of the toilet bowl, to check vitamin and sugar levels, anticipate potential diseases and flag any deficiencies.

Results will also be shared with people’s insurance companies to help lower (or increase) their rates, based on their lifestyle choices.

The MOT ‘Health Checker’ system will feature voice recognition, so people will effectively be able to talk with their toilet about their results.

In addition, the toilet seat will be able to check heart pulse rates and blood pressure from the electrical and mechanical of the heart taken from the seat itself.

In regards to checking sugar and vitamin levels; diseases and viruses etc, smart sensors in the toilet bowl will be able to check faeces and urine, and even urine flow.

James Wallman commented: “The 2050 reseach and report reveals the toilet will offer the ultimate tech-enabled personalised experienced.

“With the average consumer currently spending on average three years in a lifetime on the toilet, by 2050, this will feel like time even better spent as the toilet becomes a key tool to improve life longevity.”

“With GPs being pressed for time, the ‘MOT Health Check Toilet’ will help give a whole new meaning to people ‘paying a visit’.

“Although people will still need to visit their doctors, it will save hours of time, as toilets will soon give health updates from checking people’s temperature to their sugar levels.

“This is all from the comfort of their toilet making it the best seat in the house”.

The research has also coincided with the launch of ProNature, Bloo’s first toilet cleaning rim block, made with a 100% recycled plastic basket.

The brand that’s owned by parent company, Henkel, has pledged to make all consumer packaging reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2030.

Senior marketing manager for Bloo Edeje Onwude said: “To celebrate World Toilet Day and the launch of ProNature, Bloo commissioned Futurist James Wallman as part of the company leading the way for innovation.

“We are thrilled to reveal that the toilet will continue to be the best seat in the house, with the ‘MOT Health Check Toilet’ supporting good health and sustainability”.
