American scientists have received a grant for the creation of the tricorder from

The Contest is the Qualcomm Tricorder XPrize lasted quite a long time and over time it has involved many different teams. Scientists and engineers had one goal in mind — they had to submit a draft apparatus capable of non-invasive way to measure various biological indicators, and then to use them to diagnose diseases without the help of doctors.

The Winner of the contest was the team physician Basil Harris, who with the support of his brother, programmer and group of engineers received for their achievements $ 2.5 million to further the development of portable diagnostic apparatus.

A prototype has already shown a good side. Scientists believe that after working on the appliance is completed, it will be able to diagnose at least 13 diseases. The device is capable of delivering similar results now, but its creators are so far demonstrated only a raw prototype, is very far from perfect.

In order to effectively collect various indicators of the patient is necessary to cover up printed on a 3D printer sensors for measuring pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation and temperature. In its current form, the development of Americans are a little like a pocket and the tiny machine from Star Trek, shifts, however, are definitely — now the device is able to diagnose anaemia, pneumonia, otitis, leukocytosis and several other diseases.
