"The Simplification of Healthcare Starts with a Single Object"

Reducing the burden on the healthcare system and empowering patients to take control of their health...
Scandadu, is the perfect example of a tool that will drive the next generation of "Patient Directed" care.
Prevention is the cure, and Education is the Vehicle. 
This palm sized device will allow consumers to monitor and track their own health to aid in the early detection of a number of conditions. This Star Trek inspired tool can provide detailed information about your heart rate and rhythm, pulse ox, blood pressure, temp and emotional state by placing it up to your forehead for only 10 seconds.  The results are then delivered to your smartphone via Bluetooth.
The device still needs to pass clinical trials and will receive FDA approval, but you can pre-order on their website  for $199.
