So yet again we see some more smart tech in the underwear department only this time its tells you when its time to empty the bladder etc,subconsciously we can already decide for ourselves when we want to go but this device will tell you before you think you want to go so it might be useful for some,so take take note…on a more serious note it is also useful for those who suffer with incontinence too so from that perspective its sounding like a good idea.
This works with an app and your smartphone too,The device, unveiled last week at the Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies (CEATEC) on the outskirts of Tokyo, is not yet on sale but could be on the market by spring next year.
Reuters have reported the following after an interview with its creators
“This device predicts faecal excretion. The device goes on your stomach and uses ultrasonic waves to monitor your internal organs and sends the data to smartphones to be displayed,” said Ryohei Ochiai, of Triple W Japan’s Solution Development.
However, the company is still working on alternative methods to secure the device to underwear, because many people are concerned that it may chafe their skin.
“We are still in the process of looking at whether to use tape or belts to secure the device to the stomach. However, many elderly people are concerned about skin chafing. So we are looking at how to secure the device safely and solidly,” Ochiai said.
