Today we use technology to check the news, the weather, our emails, Facebook, our texts and our Tweets. Yet, with this wealth of information gathering, we don’t check our bodies. Medical providers around the globe are taxed for resources. It’s time individuals start taking charge of their own health. The Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE is making that possible. By virtue of the Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE, Team Aezon is taking on the challenge. Aezon formed in September 2012 to tackle the Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE and is composed of students from Johns Hopkins University in partnership with the developers of Biomeme, Symcat, Spirosmart, and Aegle.
