    • Develop more smart devices for constant health-tracking in addition to the smart toilet. 

  • Business Model

    Geometry Healthcare's primary source of revenue is from a test chip that it has developed and which is embedded inside the toilet. The company also operates offline clinics. It outsources the toilet production to Ensli, a Chinese sanitary ware manufacturer.

    Smart toilet for health tracking:

    A health report is automatically generated within two to five minutes after a user uses the toilet. One toilet can be used by multiple users. Before one uses the toilet, his/her finger print will be required to activate a user-specific test chip, which has to be replaced every six months. The toilet can also include other smart toilet features, such as, a bidet and seat-heating.

    Potential B2B and B2C markets:

    Although the company has not officially launched its smart toilet in the market, it intends to target individuals as well as businesses, including healthcare and real estate sectors. 

    O2O:

    The company can also provide its users with follow-on healthcare services, such as, health management guidance. This can be done via the app, based on results of the urine test. If a test result is abnormal, its medical team will contact the user to discuss further treatment options. The company also runs its own offline clinics to provide users with premium healthcare services.
