Scanadu Raises $1.6 Million on Indiegogo, Breaks Funding Record

7-21-2013 10-09-30 PM

Scanadu Scout’s Indiegogo campaign officially ended this Saturday, raising a record-breaking $1,665,380 from 8,000 donors.

Scanadu has developed a tricoder-like device that it hopes will become as commonplace as the thermometer. By placing the device against the temple for 10 seconds, the Scout will capture heart rate, body temperature, pulse oximetry, respiration rate, blood pressure, emotional stress, and an ECG waveform.

Scanadu has created the prototype needed to apply for FDA approval and will use the new funding to complete the necessary approval processes, in addition to ramping up manufacturing. The company reports that it will begin shipping units in March 2014.
