  • Publication number: 20200271578
    Abstract: Provided is a toilet device which includes a toilet body including a toilet bowl part, and an analysis device that includes an optical member in contact with urine introduced into the toilet bowl part and that is capable of analyzing a constituent of the urine by detecting analysis light propagated within the optical member and totally reflecting off a urine contact surface of the optical member. An optical path for the analysis light is set such that the analysis light totally reflects off the urine contact surface of the optical member multiple times through multiple reflection. This can increase the number of times the analysis light reflects off the urine contact surface against urine.

  • Publication number: 20200248439
    Abstract: An operating device includes a device main body, and an operating body operated by a user. The operating body is movable between a first position and a second position and enables activation of a water-related appliance by moving from the first position to the second position. The device main body includes a marker part that is different in outer surface color from a neighboring area of the device main body. When the operating body is placed at the first position, the operating body hides the marker part from the outside, and, when the operating body is placed at the second position, the operating body exposes at least part of the marker part to the outside.
