Scanadu Scout is a small, speedy and affordable device that puts vital health information at your fingertips. Simply hold Scanadu Scout to the temple, and in less than ten seconds it will accurately read your temperature, respiratory rate, oximetry, ECG, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, and stress. Scanadu Scout lets users explore the diagnostic abilities of a clinic and conveniently puts them in your smartphone. It’s like having a doctor in your pocket.

With encouraging feedback from the community, partners, and regulators, and a strong push from Scanadu’s engineers and researchers, the company has made three key breakthroughs:

MULTI-PERSON SCOUTING
Just like Spock, you can now scout someone else - an ailing parent or sick child. With this breakthrough, Scanadu made some key changes to the design. It is now circular in shape, with the sensors built into the front of the device.

ONE-STOP-SHOP HEALTHFEED
You’ll be able to collect readings from Scanadu’s suite of products - including ScanaFlo - through a single integrated app. Seeing your comprehensive healthfeed allows for data fusion, and the potential to read more vitals such as cuffless, non-invasive blood pressure.

INCREASED COMPUTATIONAL POWER
Scanadu has added more horsepower to the device, taking it from 8-bit (the power of an Apple II) to 32-bit (the power of a smartphone). The new device is built on Micrium, NASA’s real-time operation system for SAM (Sample Analysis at Mars) on the Rover Curiosity.
