Wearable medical device predicts poop time

The device gives the user a 10-minute warning that shows up on their smartphone.

A new wearable device, that is linked to a person's smart phone, can help predict when they will have to poop.

The Daily Dot reported, the "D Free attaches to your stomach to monitor the internal movements of your intestines and give you a handy countdown timer."

The device synchs with an app on the user's smartphone and tracks bowel movements. Users get a 10 minute warning before the app thinks they will have to use the bathroom.

Although it may seem funny, the app can really help those with chronic digestive, and other medical, issues.
