In this paper, the integration of Internet of Things (IoT) regarding recent technology is discussed in a healthcare perspective. Various healthcare devices have emerged in recent years, allowing individuals to diagnose and manage their health conditions easily at home. However, the diagnostic utilization of IoT healthcare services is not yet fully integrated with the Internet. For this reason, people still have to go, for example, through a hands-on sampling process to self-Analyze their urine, which is the same for inspectors in hospital labs. Therefore, with the exception of people suffering from certain diseases (e.g., diabetes), there are only a few who check their own health status due to the inconvenience. In this paper, sensor-based urine and feces separating toilet proposes a categorizing method for the user's toilet, which applies various scenarios and analyses of the urine components using long-range wireless communication technology to transmit data from the smart toilet to the user.
