Science fiction becomes reality with Scanadu Scout’s Star Trek style Tricorder. Scanadu Scout is designed to be a medical grade Tricorder using your smartphone and Bluetooth LE to emulate an Emergency Room in your pocket.
The device can measure your:
- Heart Rate
- Skin/Core Body Temperature
- SpO2 (Oxymetry)
- Respiratory Rate
- Blood Pressure
- Emotional Stress
The device works by touching your forehead for 10 seconds. It then connects wirelessly to an app on your smartphone to provide you with analysis of the data it collected.
“Down the road we see consumers collecting all of their health data and even sharing it with each other to learn what works and what doesn’t. This all happens through our smartphones.”
“Right now we use our smartphone as a hub for our personal data – our emails, our photos, our entertainment, our fingerprints even. Why not use it for your health?”
The firm’s founder Walter De Brouwer, told the BBC at CES 2014
