Scanadu: The medical Tricorder from Star Trek is here - CNN.com

Scanadu: The medical Tricorder from Star Trek is here - CNN.com | Latest mHealth News | Scoop.it
A handheld medical device that reads vital signs in seconds: the Tricorder is no longer science fiction.
more...
Richard Platt's curator insight, February 17, 4:56 PM

Through its sensor, and in a matter of seconds, the Scanadu measures heart rate, temperature, blood pressure, oxygen level and provides a complete ECG reading.  The device is the brainchild of Walter De Brouwer, a Belgian entrepreneur who had to learn how hospitals work -- and don't work -- the hard way after his son suffered brain damage as the consequence of a fall.  "Star Trek was more than just a movie, it was a business plan," he told CNN's Nick Glass.

In Star Trek, the Tricorder was handled by a doctor, but De Brouwer thinks the most revolutionary aspect of the Scanadu is that it can be used by anyone: "We've medicalised your smartphone. You can now check your health as easily as your email. People will no longer ask if there's a doctor on the plane, but if there's a Tricorder."

Gary Hayes's curator insight, February 2, 7:19 PM

Quote "Well, wearables are about to explode into an array of novel, single-function devices. They will suit discrete situations rather than peeling off multiple functions from your phone—it’s use-case engineering. Think of activity-specific clothing, like Hexoskin, that monitors workouts. Or medical devices like Vital Connect, a patch that tracks your vital signs and lets doctors access the data. Or earbuds that aren’t quite hearing aids but which you can wear when there’s too much background noise."

The title of the post says it all, real need and delivering value to the user.  "Wearables are about to explode into an array of novel, single-function devices. They will suit discrete situations rather than peeling off multiple functions from your phone—it’s use-case engineering. Think of activity-specific clothing, like Hexoskin, that monitors workouts. Or medical devices like Vital Connect, a patch that tracks your vital signs and lets doctors access the data. Or earbuds that aren’t quite hearing aids but which you can wear when there’s too much background noise."

Vivalist's curator insight, February 5, 4:53 AM

"Intel thinks wearables will be more ubiquitous than computers or phones. And it’s right. You won’t have just one wearable—you’ll have dozens. The biggest mistake everyone makes is assuming we’re going to wear the same one all the time.

That’s because, traditionally, wearables have done bits and pieces of what our phones already do. Aside from tracking movements, what are these bands and glasses besides proxy screens for our phones?

Well, wearables are about to explode into an array of novel, single-function devices. They will suit discrete situations rather than peeling off multiple functions from your phone—it’s use-case engineering."
