It can be really frustrating to deal with aging discomforts. The risk of being alone in disregarding important symptoms is high

The importance of prevention

If prevention is better than cure, Kibi could represent a valid tech-fellow for supervising health’s upcoming issues. One of the available features of our modular device is the traceability of back and forth movements through the bathroom. This may help in anticipating symptoms – and thus preventing – symptoms such as prostatic issues.

With combined exchanges of information between the smartwatch and environmental sensors strategically placed, Kibi can detect and notify possible standard deviations from daily behavioral patterns.

It can be extremely useful in order to personally monitor ongoing situations or for specialized doctors who might require some approximate measurements to contextualize the clinical picture.

Prostatic issues: don’t overlook them

From 30% to 60% of over 65 male seniors, prostatic issues become incredibly common, generating upsetting consequences.

Symptoms such as:

– going too often to bathroom;

– waking up in the middle of the night to urinate

– or the feeling of partial bladder emptying, are all early manifestations of prostatic hypertrophy.

In certain cases, these manifestations could possibly lead to cancer diagnosis; this represents the 20% of cancers diagnosed in men, as AIRC‘s researches claim.

Catching them on time could mean to start an observational follow-up, by helping both the patient and the urologist to register essential data.

For instance, it can be useful to know how many times the assisted person has been visiting the bathroom.

In conclusion, helping preventive diagnosis – as in the specific case of preventing prostatic issues – by using unobtrusive tools and Activities of Daily Living’s detection, realises one of the numerous makings that Kibi is willing to offer, as an additional support to medical doctors, caregivers and patients.
