Scanadu turns smartphones into health monitoring devices.
About Scanadu Stock
Founded in Silicon Valley, Scanadu is bringing a suite of health diagnostics products to market that enable consumers to better diagnose many common ailments with the power to monitor and measure their health. Healthcare is rapidly becoming quantitative, a number's game - see the Quantified Self movement- Patients as well as doctors will be overloaded with "big" data. This will open up a massive market for auto-diagnosis. But this market needs tools, just like the mobile market needed a mobile phone. One of the tools will be the medical Tricorder, inspired by Star Trek. This device is used by doctors to help diagnose diseases and collect bodily information about a patient. Advances in sensors, artificial intelligence, mobile fluidics and cloud computing technology, along with the coming ubiquity of mobile phones, makes this suite of products possible. In 2013, Scanadu had a record breaking crowdfunding campaign of $1.6M on Indiegogo and is currently one of the top 7 finalists in the Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE.
