Smart Diapers with Urine Strip Test and Mobile Application
Scientific developed urine-tracking Smart Diapers. The diapers have a code on the bottom that will change colors after the baby pees. From there, parents need to scan the diaper with a companion app to log the information. While Smart Diapers tests for urinary tract infection, prolonged dehydration and developing kidney problems, it will also look for health patterns that will be visible after a few months of tracking. The website emphasizes that the product ”is not to create another quantified self gadget, but to create a product that is unobtrusive in your daily life and only speaks up when there is reason to see a pediatrician or a specialist.”
