Scanadu Scout revolutionising medicine

Scanadu ScoutYou’ve started a new business, you have a prototype product and a secure business plan and all you need now is the funding. For most startup’s walking into a Dragon’s Den styled scenario is past unrealistic and the odd meeting may come up now and then, but these are a rarity. With this all taken into account, there is no wonder why online platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo are flooded with new proposals everyday, however now businesses need to create something unique enough to stand out from all that noise.

Well the latest creation from Scanadu has not only beaten the competition, but has had VC’s climbing over each other to become a part of it. The product Scanadu Scout has become the highest funded campaign on the site in its five-year history. After initially only looking for a $100,000 investment, they company have managed to secure funding of up to $1,664,176 smashing the previous highest from Goddamn Tesla Museum.

So what makes this product so desirable? The Scanadu Scout is a small, round scanner that monitors a persons vital signs and transmits these figures directly to a smartphone. Were not talking about your usual fitness statistics like calories lost or miles run, but something much more sophisticated and important to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. By scanning the device on your temple, you are able to monitor:

  • Heart rate
  • Skin/Core body temperature
  • Respiratory rate
  • Blood pressure
  • Oxygen levels

 

These are the fundamental statistics your doctor will take when you visit, so that they understand the level of health you are currently at. The creators call this the ultimate consumer device, and claim it is like having a doctor in your hands.

The product is currently in production after running its course on the Indiegogo website, its now a matter of waiting to see how big a bang it can make.
