About the company
Scalable Health Labs are focused on mobile bio-behavioral sensing, to develop novel “sensors” that can simultaneously measure both bio- and behavioral-markers for a given healthcare context. The challenge lies in measuring both bio- and behavioral-markers in-situ, away from a clinic or healthcare facility. The new sensors will be the foundation of next-generation healthcare architecture, where both the patient and healthcare providers are empowered by relevant and timely information
