Don’t do this in the bathroom!

During our Coronavirus work schedule,
I’ve found some fun hints and tips about plumbing and health that are worth sharing.
How germs spread

  • on your toothbrush,
  • your toilet seat

Japanese tech gadget prevents elderly toilet accidents

Sydney April 6th 2020

Approaching a milestone birthday, its fair to say that my personal plumbing is in reasonable working condition. I have a skin check annually and a biennial colonoscopy and prostate check. And, I encourage my peers to do the same.

But, when my middle son recently took a trip to Japan it inspired me to research the technology that’s available with Japanese plumbing.
And apart from the wonderful bidet type toilets that do everything, I found this little gadget.

It simply measures what is going on with your personal plumbing.
When you’re out and about and your bowels need to be emptied, it sends you a text message warning that you’d better get to a toilet in the next ten minutes.

Now, I hope my three boys don’t have to help their dad with his toileting, but the benefits of the Japanese Poo app for the aged and disabled seem like a helpful advancement.

I encourage you to follow the link to see it.
