Smart Diapers Track Your Baby’s Health by Checking Their Pee

by Hazel Chua

You can get a lot of information from one sampling of urine. That’s what the folks from Pixie Scientific think, because that’s the concept they’re working on with Smart Diapers.

Smart Diaper

Smart Diapers are exactly what they sound like. The “smart” part is because of the fact that the diaper tests the urine the baby passes on the diaper itself. Parents can then scan the QR code on the diaper to bring up a report about their child’s health. Of course, it shouldn’t substitute urine tests that hospitals run, though.

The Smart Diaper tracks changes in the baby’s urine, which can potentially provide information about┬ásigns of urinary tract infections, prolonged dehydration, or risks for kidney problems.

Pixie Scientific explains: “Smart Diapers alert you to certain conditions that require immediate attention and also track your child’s health for months or years, automatically looking for emerging trends.” They add: “By taking useful data from a wet Smart Diaper, we make use of something that would normally be thrown directly into the trash.”

The Smart Diaper is currently up for funding on Indiegogo.
