Interested in testing The Heart Seat from the comfort of your own home?

Now’s your chance.

Casana has launched our in-home research study formally titled “In-home cardiovascular monitoring toilet seat (The Heart Seat™) early user experience study.” The goal of this early in-home observational study is to test and refine the user’s experience of utilizing The Heart Seat health monitoring device, which has been built into a toilet seat, called The Heart Seat. Users’ perception of The Heart Seat in concept will be measured, and their experience physically interacting with The Heart Seat will be evaluated.

Casana’s vision is to create an effortless, home monitoring device available to consumers in order to support proactive health. The Heart Seat is our first solution. By capturing long-term vital trends from sensors such as an electrocardiogram (ECG), ballistocardiogram (BCG), and photoplethysmogram (PPG) through daily monitoring, care providers can receive a holistic picture of their patients’ or loved ones’ health without worrying about what might be missing due to compliance barriers. In volunteering to participate in this study you are supporting our vision to help those who are currently struggling with day-to-day health monitoring.

The study will last for 2 months in duration (with an option to extend) and be performed in two phases:

  • Phase One will evaluate the subject’s perception of The Heart Seat in concept, as well as evaluate the subject’s physical interaction with The Heart Seat through monthly surveys.
  • Phase Two will evaluate the subject’s interaction with The Heart Seat, as well as evaluate the user experience with The Heart Seat’s software application, through monthly surveys. Once the software application is complete, all new users will be directly enrolled in phase two.
