The Scanadu Scout is a device that can monitor a number of aspects of the user’s health over time. It is used by simply holding the small gadget against the forehead for 10 seconds, and the data is synched to a smartphone where it is displayed for easy tracking.
The “first medical tricorder” can measure your heart rate, skin/core body temperature, oxymetry, respiratory rate, blood pressure, ECG and emotional stress.
Your body’s information where it belongs: in your hands. Share it with your doctor and others to take health conversations – and discoveries – to a new level. Learn ways that different people, locations, activities, foods, beverages, and medicines affect your body. Sick or well. Discover connections. Watch trends. Spot side effects. Catch problems early. And track them. Get healthier.
Scanadu is a startup based at the NASA Research Park in California. It is releasing Scout as an Indiegogo campaign and has almost tripled it’s $100,000 goal already. Backers can get their own device and the free app before it reaches stores for $199. Check out the video below to learn more:
