Scanadu Scout: A Medical Tricorder Dr. McCoy Would Want

Scanadu is building products that enable users to monitor their health at any time, any place. The company is focused on wireless devices that sync to a smart phone app to show users health data, which can lead to informed health triage.

The Scanadu Scout, widely proclaimed as a “medical grade Tricorder” can measure heart rate, body temperature, respiratory rate, blood pressure, ECG, emotional stress and more. How does it work? Place the Scout on your forehead for 10 seconds and your stats will be instantly displayed on your phone app. The makers of the Scout want it to be a FDA recognized medical device. They are offering users an exploratory version of the device and asking them to opt-in to initial clinical studies. Scanadu is a participant in the Qualcomm Tricorder X-Prize and I am certainly excited to see what other healthcare forward technologies will be created from the competition.

    Hi there! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask. Does managing a well-established blog such as yours take a large amount of work? I am completely new to operating a blog however I do write in my diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
