SCANurse London-based digital health company, has announced it is one of 10 companies to reach the final stage of the prestigious $10M Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZEa 3.5-year global competition sponsored by the Qualcomm Foundation for teams to develop a consumer-focused, mobile device capable of diagnosing and interpreting a set of 15 medical conditions and capturing five vital health metrics.

We were delighted to hear this news and thrilled that our client has been shortlisted to the final 10! Our client, Anil didn’t hesitate to thank those who had provided support. “I would firstly like to thanks all those that helped us get this far in particular, Triteq, Kingston University, Skin Analytics, UCL and Owlstone. “

The Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE is a $10 million global competition to stimulate innovation and integration of precision diagnostic technologies, helping consumers make their own reliable health diagnoses anywhere, anytime. The brief presented an extensive range of opportunities for a device, so each team can take its own approach to design and functionality.

“Imagine a portable, wireless device in the palm of your hand that monitors and diagnoses your health conditions. That’s the technology envisioned by this competition, and it will allow unprecedented access to personal health metrics. The end result: Radical innovation in healthcare that will give individuals far greater choices in when, where, and how they receive care.”

The origins for the competition began in 2010 with conversations between Dr. Peter H. Diamandis, the Chairman and CEO of the XPRIZE Foundation, met with Don Jones, Vice President of Global Strategy and Market Development for Qualcomm Incorporated’s Wireless Health group. Qualcomm Foundation agreed to sponsor the competition, enabling the Tricorder XPRIZE to become a reality, culminating in the launch of the Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE competition at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January 2012.
