10 Wearable Startups Raised More than $100 Million in 2015
Scanadu raised $35 million in late April to bring to market its medical tricorder, an at-home medical device measuring heart rate, core body temperature, diastolic blood pressure, and other health vitals. Along with bringing the tricorder to market, Scanadu plans to produce a family of medical products to track vitals and share these metrics with users' smartphones.
"Scanadu is right at the heart of the next generation of computing which combines mobility, sensors, cloud, and big data," said investor Jerry Yang, the former chief executive and cofounder of Yahoo, in a statement. "I am bullish on Scanadu and its potential to revolutionize the way we think about our health."
