Tricorder XPRIZE eyed by Toronto-based Biosign

Now a Canadian company and 20 other teams from around the world are vying for a $10-million XPRIZE by trying to replicate Dr. McCoy's "tricorder" and go where no real-world medical device has gone before. The entry by the Cloud DX team from the Toronto-based medical devices company Biosign (TSX-V:BIO) is based on an existing product called Pulsewave, a wrist-worn monitor that measures blood pressure, heart rate and pulse rhythm irregularities, as well as divining the wearer's respiration rate. Readings from the USB-powered wrist monitor appear on a small computer screen.
