When we talk about liver diseases, what immediately spring to mind are viral hepatitis, cirrhosis or even cancer. But there is another disease still largely unknown, called NASH, which has taken on frightening proportions in Western countries. DietSensor explains it all for you. What is NASH? Non-alcoholic fatty liver diseases (NAFLD) represent a spectrum of … Continue reading NASH: A silent killer disease!

The DietSensor app and Scio scanner can analyze the foods you're eating, and if they're healthy for you.

Calorie tracking apps seem like a good idea in theory, until you get to know just how prone they are to human error. After all, how are you supposed to know how many cups of pasta you have on your plate, or how many cashews are in an ounce ? 

While some dietitians have begun asking their clients to send them pictures of their aliments to provide a more accurate picture of how much they’re eating (and how it converts into nutrients), now, there’s a better and easier way. Meet the DietSensor’s app, pairs via Bluetooth with the Scio sensor, which has a small infrared sensor on one end. When placed against your food, it analyzes the signal reflected by the food, and then compares it to DietSensor's database to determine what's on your plate. We will also release a pocket-size scale with a partner, so that you can know the weigh of your food on the go, too. Within the app, it shows how much carbohydrates, fats, and proteins are in what you’ve scanned and weighted, and counts it against your recommended daily intake. As both the app and the sensor are still in final production — they won't be available until september-2016 — the beta test seems to be all set for July and all pre-orders can be taken from our website. DietSensor is still tweaking its algorithm to be able to have a large variety of homogeneous food you may wish to eat. 


14 key trends from HealthMine's recent digital health report that examines how consumers are using digital health tools and how it impacts their lives.

With a miniaturized scanning sensor technology, Israel-based Consumer Physics earned this year’s top corporate honor in The Optical Society’s (OSA) Enabled by Optics Contest. This contest raises public awareness of the importance of optics and photonics technologies in furthering innovation and positively impacting society. It offers both a corporate and student competition, bringing pioneering optical technologies to light.

Personal sensors could also have an impact on the user's health and safety and beyond. The Scio sensor from Consumer Physics -- already on the market -- provides a nutritional breakdown for food and drugs. The Atmotube is one of several new personal sensors in a fast-moving and diverse field. The Airbot from Carnegie Mellon's CREATE Lab will go on sale next year, together with the Waterbot for testing water quality. Avimanyu Basu, senior research analyst at Frost & Sullivan, believes the personal sensor market has great potential, estimating it could be worth $300 million by 2017.

Smart sensors are everywhere, and will soon inform nearly every aspect of our lives. With the capability to scan the molecular makeup of any object nearby, especially with a device that fits in the palm of the hand and can be taken anywhere, people will have a window into what exactly makes up their surroundings to an unprecedented level of specificity.

SCiO is based on the proven near-IR spectroscopy method. The physical basis for this material analysis method is that each type of molecule vibrates in its own unique way, and these vibrations interact with light to create a unique optical signature.

The World Economic Forum's Technology Pioneers programme recognizes early-stage companies from around the world that are involved in the design, development and deployment of new technologies, and are poised to have a significant impact on business and society.

Listen Dror Sharon, explaining SCiO when his company was awarded as one of the World Economic Forum's "technology pioneers". The company joins 48 of the world's most innovative companies for their work in creating the world's first molecular sensor that fits in the palm of your hand. We are delighted to be part of the adventure, creating DietSensor, the first instant nutrition coach with SCiO!

Consumer Physics, the Israel-based startup behind the SCiO pocket molecular sensor, was awarded today as one of the World Economic Forum's "technology pioneers." The company joins 48 of the world's most innovative companies for their work in creating the world's first molecular sensor that fits in the palm of your hand. SCiO provides endless opportunities to explore the molecular makeup of the world around us, including cosmetics, clothes, flora, soil, jewels, leather, rubber, plastics, and even human tissue or bodily fluids.
