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 tool will be called the medical Tricorder, inspired by Star Trek, where the 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.
