Are you healthy? If you say “Yes”, what makes you think so?
Most people hope to live a healthy and happy life. However, many don’t know their actual health condition until they experience disease symptoms.
What if an illness affects you suddenly? What if an illness changes your life terribly?
SYMAX has created an innovative and hassle-free product that detects diseases and illnesses early. Designing such a device is not an easy job. To enable a better future, talented people have gathered and are continuously working on the technology development.
We want to encourage early detection and early treatment of diseases. We continue innovation in healthcare to improve quality of life for everyone.
We think it is important to be aware of the situation as early as possible, even before symptoms appear.
SYMAX is developing an easy-to-use product that detects diseases and illnesses early. The health condition of anyone can be easily monitored anytime with the service that we are developing.
Easy to Check, Better health
Symax, Inc. provides a new preventive healthcare service by designing a unique health monitoring device that can easily be set up inside any toilet. Once setup, the service analyzes the human waste automatically and allows people to get personalized health information via their smartphones, leading to early detection of lifestyle diseases such as diabetes.
