If prevention is better than cure, Kibi could represent a valid tech-fellow for supervising health’s upcoming issues. One of the available features of our device – which has been designed as modular and therefore it allows preferential activations among its different functionalities – is the traceability of back and forth movements through the bathroom.
With combined exchanges of information between the smartwatch and environmental sensors strategically placed, Kibi can detect and notify possible standard deviations from daily behavioural patterns. It can be extremely useful in order to personally monitor ongoing situations or for specialised doctors who might requires some approximate measurements to contextualize the clinical picture.
From 30% to 60% of over 65 male seniors, prostatic issues become incredibly common, generating upsetting consequences: symptoms such as going too often to bathroom, waking up in the middle of the night to urinate or the feeling of partial bladder’s emptying are all early manifestations of prostatic hypertrophy. In certain cases, these manifestations could possibly lead to cancer’s diagnosis, which represents the 20% of cancers diagnosed in men, as AIRC‘s researches claim. Catching them on time could mean to start an observational follow-up, by helping both the patient and the urologist to register how many times the assisted person has been visiting the bathroom and if salient changes have occurred for evaluation.
Helping preventive diagnosis, by using unobtrusive tools and Activities of Daily Living’s detection, realises one of the numerous makings that Kibi is willing to offer as an additional support to medical doctors, caregivers and patients.
