Coprata Inc. is pursuing non-invasive physiological monitoring that easily, safely and discreetly tracks health with little or no change to daily routine. Coprata is developing a Smart Sampling Toilet, a breakthrough wastewater technology licensed from Duke and developed at the Center for Water, Sanitation, Hygiene and Infectious Disease.
The Smart Sampling Toilet technology provides an automated way to track daily bowel movements by enabling hands-free analysis of human stool specimens in the privacy of one’s own home. This technology is designed to detect and manage acute and chronic gastrointestinal disease, provide early warning of infectious disease, and monitor personalized wellness. The digital health product combines individual data tracking software technology with enabling hardware.
