What does the body scanner do?

Forward's body scanner helps us do two major things:

  • Automate gathering common diagnostics - instead of sitting on a cold exam chair while a medical assistant takes your temperature and vital signs, the body scanner takes care of it in 45 seconds.

  • Structure the data from the scanner and make it available to you in your Forward app as well as to your doctor on the screen inside the room. This helps us build a data-driven picture of your health, track changes and trends over time, and bring the data in contextually when it relates to health issues.
