Using Your New SCiO Scanner with DietSensor

The SCiO scanner, developed by Consumer Physics, is an innovative tool that uses infrared spectroscopy to determine the chemical makeup of food and drink.

How does it work?  To explain – each type of molecule in a food vibrates in its own way, and these vibrations interact with light to create a unique, optical signature.  The SCiO scanner analyzes the content of food based on how its molecules interact with light.  Spectrometer technology can now be integrated in small and portable devices.

The steps below will help you use your new SCiO and get it connected the DietSensor App:

  1. Power on the SCiO by pressing and holding the button.
  2. When the SCiO is powered up, a flash will indicate that the devise is ready to be connected.
  3. Turn on the DietSensor application and activate the Bluetooth.
  4. For the first connection, click on the icon at the right of your screen and choose the nearest SCiO.
  5. Start the calibration process by clicking on the SCiO (no new calibration will be required unless you uninstall the app or switch to another SCiO).
  6. You need an Ultimate Plan to be able to use the SCiO. After purchase, you will have to create a Consumer Physics (CP) account (use the sign up blue button on the CP login screen).
  7. In the meal screen, select the SCiO icon and follow the steps.
  8. To scan a food item, point the SCiO about a ½ inch from the food without moving.
  9. Firmly press the button of the SCiO and release it.
  10. Wait for two flashes before moving.

For best results use the scanner in a very bright environment.  This will prevent the SCiO from interacting  with other infrared waves and gives more accurate results.  The food must be homogeneous.
