Non-invasive medical ‘tricorder’ for chronic disease management and decentralized clinical trials
Aidar Health developed MouthLab, a non-invasive, hand-held, ‘rapid health assessment’ device for home use. The device can be used as a digital thermometer, yet it can also measure more than 10 vital health parameters in under 30 seconds. The company’s cloud-based data analytics solution reads the data. The software uses AI, including machine learning algorithms, to identify, analyze and predict health status and disease progression.
Data from the “tricorder-style” device can be accessed through a physician triage or surveillance dashboard, which allows for timely intervention and treatment modification for patients with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 infection. With secure APIs, the data and insights can be integrated into other telemedicine platforms to send and receive real-time data, interact with at-home patients and enhance the delivery of care.
Sathya Elumalai and Gene Fridman developed the “tricorder-style” device and founded the company. Elumalai, the founder and CEO, told MDO that “Mouthlab is like a ‘check engine’ light for humans.” –TS
