FDA Clears Smart Toilet Seat for Heart Health Monitoring

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared Casana’s Heart Seat™ toilet seat for use in a home environment to measure heart rate and oxygen saturation (SpO2) in adults at least 22 years of age weighing 90 to 350 pounds.

Using sensors embedded in the toilet seat, the device is able to measure these vital signs and send the data automatically to the Casana Cloud. From there, a designated health care provider is able to view the data generated from the 3 sensors: a ballistocardiogram (which measures the mechanical activity of the heart), an electrocardiogram (which measures the electrical activity of the heart), and a photoplethysmogram (which detects blood volume changes).
