Scanadu Scout™ clinical trial
Researchers at the Scripps Translational Science Institute (STSI) have partnered with mobile medical device company Scanadu to test the effectiveness and value of the Scanadu Scout™ wireless health sensor.
The Scanadu Scout™ is the size of a makeup compact and can measure an individuals heart rate, blood pressure, blood oxygen level and temperature.
4000 study participants were recruited from more than 5000 people in the United States who invested in the device via a record-breaking Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign. The six-month trial will evaluate how often participants use the device, how they perceive the device’s ease of use, and how it affects various health behaviors such as medication adherence.
This study is no longer accepting new participants.
