Scanadu Hopes It Has Its Finger on the Pulse of Something Big

Dr. Alan Greene holds a small device to his head and in just a few seconds his iPhone shows his heart rate, breathing rate, temperature and other medical data.

Collecting such data over time allows people to track changes in their health and notice when things are abnormal for them as an individual, rather than as compared to the medical averages that have historically determined what are considered normal vital signs.
That’s the idea behind the first device from Scanadu, a Silicon Valley-based start-up, which will show off a prototype of the product later on Tuesday at the Wired Health Conference in New York.
