Scanadu SCOUT Reads Your Vital Signs

Not everyone is able to live in a country where a doctor is easily available as and when required, not to mention having access to decent medical facilities when one’s health starts to take a turn for the worse. Well, medical startup Scanadu intends to change that for the less fortunate around the globe, working to deliver a set of home diagnostic tools which were specially designed in order to allow users to monitor their health over a period of time, so that they will be able to have a better idea on whether they need to make that trip to a doctor.

Walter de Brouwer, founder and CEO of Scanadu, said, “The thermometer, introduced in the 1800s, was the last great tool to revolutionize home healthcare. Consumers don’t have the tools they need to monitor their health and make informed decisions about when they’re actually sick and need to see a doctor. We want to empower consumers to take control of their health and give them direct access to their personal healthfeed.”

The Scanadu SCOUT that you see above is a palm-sized device designed by Yves Behar, where it is capable of reading a range of vital signs when held to the temple, taking less than 10 seconds to do so. All data collected by the SCOUT will be sent to a connected smartphone wirelessly, and the Scanadu app will then show off pulse transit time, pulse rate, electrical heart activity, temperature, heart rate variability and blood oxygenation. The asking price for the Scanadu SCOUT is tipped to fall under the$150 mark.
