Smart toilet seat that detects heart rate, oxygen levels gets FDA clearance

A smart toilet seat that measures people's vital signs has received FDA clearance.

The Heart Seat from Casana got approved to detect heart rate and oxygen levels. The company says it plans to launch its first product by the end of 2023 and pursue systolic and diastolic blood pressure monitoring in future filings.

"As medicine moves from the physician's office into the home, accurate home monitoring of medical parameters is increasingly important," said George Bakris, MD, director of the Comprehensive Hypertension Center at University of Chicago Medicine and a Casana adviser, in a May 1 news release. "FDA approval is a critical validation step for the Heart Seat."
