Moxie has built the world’s first AI-powered poop scanner. Yay.
What does that mean?
We’ve built an app that can take snaps of your poop to help you learn more about whether your digestive health is on track.
How does it work?
In short, it’s a poop scanner that allows you to take a snap of your poop. It then analyses the poop and gives you a score between one and seven as to how healthy your poop is. 1 is dehydrated, and 7 is the wet, watery stuff that tends to come straight out of you without much warning (but we’ll get into that later).
From a technical standpoint, it’s a fully functional artificial intelligent (AI) device, that has been trained to understand different consistencies in poop and what they mean. We fed the AI thousands of photos of poop to help develop this type of knowledge.
What are the benefits of the app?
We’ve further customized this revolutionary app so that the AI gives you a detailed response as to what it thinks your poop is rated and why and it also provides some recommendations you can follow if your poop is looking unhealthy.
Eventually, we’ll implement a ‘poop diary’ where you can store images of your poop over an extended period of time so that you can review your digestive health and take further action with a medical practitioner, if necessary. Stay tuned for updates! Shit is gonna get real.
How do we know what a decent poop looks like?
We’ve adopted a lot of our knowledge from studying the ‘Bristol Stool Scale’ which is a chart that explores all shapes and types of poop. It’s also known as the Meyers Scale. The chart is designed to help doctors measure the time it takes for food to pass through your body, and whether there’s something internally wrong with your digestive system. There are seven different types of poop.
The seven types of poop are:
- Type 1: Separate hard lumps, like nuts (hard to pass)
- Type 2: Sausage-shaped, but lumpy (hard to pass)
- Type 3: Like a sausage but with cracks on its surface (the best)
- Type 4: Like a sausage or snake, smooth and soft (the best)
- Type 5: Soft blobs with clear cut edges (a little wet)
- Type 6: Fluffy pieces with ragged edges, a mushy stool (very wet)
- Type 7: Watery, no solid pieces, entirely liquid (extremely wet)
Although types can vary quite often, it’s important to remember that over an extended period of time, your poop should be sitting within the numbers of 3-4. If not, then you may have butt issues.
Why aren’t people talking about this?
The reason why many people don’t know about this scale is because of the ‘crappy’ stigmas poop has. We literally are too shit scared to speak about our poops. Why? Because quite frankly they’re smelly and gross, but we don’t care because we need this vital information to determine whether there’s something wrong. Power to the poop!
How can you join the moxie movement?
Get into the bathroom, get those bowels moving and start taking snaps!
Our poop scanner still has its training wheels on, however, and with your help, it can move from training mode into a fully functional app that will guide you on your journey to better health.
