The device, called the Scout from startup Scanadu, measures key respiratory and cardiac vital signs, including an electrocardiogram, by simply holding the sensor to a person's forehead for 10 seconds and data are tracked and analyzed via a smartphone. The startup has also revealed plans to expand the integrated app to be able to perform urine analysis using a disposable paddle that connects to the phone.
