Digital footprints are being used to identify health risks in homes and businesses and could eventually help doctors diagnose diseases and predict deaths, according to a startup in the technology industry.
Yamaha Digital Thermalometer, founded in May, uses digital thermometers to track how hot and cold a room is and measure how hot or cold the air is.
When the temperature rises above a certain threshold, the temperature is turned on or off.
A digital footprint of the home can help doctors predict the risks of illness and death, according a pitch.
The technology is currently being used in medical settings for tracking and monitoring temperature.
Digital footprints can also be used to help predict how long people have been living in a home or if a house has been in foreclosure, according the pitch.
A personal digital footprint could also help people make informed decisions about what to buy and buy, it says.
The pitch says digital footprints could also be put to use to identify a potential health risk, like if a person is at high risk for heart disease or diabetes.
The pitch also includes a video that explains how the company will use the digital footprints to provide healthcare services, which include treating people with illnesses like diabetes.
The video describes how the technology will use a series of temperature sensors that monitor the air temperature inside the home to determine how hot it is, the company says.
The company, which was founded by three Japanese women and a Canadian, has raised $2.5 million in funding from the New York Stock Exchange’s venture capital arm, Accel Partners.
YDET is one of a growing number of digital footprints startups, and Yamaha Digital Thermometer is one example of a startup trying to use digital footprints as a way to help people manage their health, said CEO Yosuke Okumura.
Okumura said the company is working on ways to use the technology to track health and health conditions, like cancer.
He said the startup will use sensors inside the thermostat to measure temperature and to track when the thermo-sensor is on and off.
He says the technology can be used for everything from monitoring your home’s health to detecting illness.
“Digital footprints could help us understand the effects of illness, like obesity and diabetes,” Okumuri said.
“A lot of the research on these issues is in people’s homes.”
A digital footprint has to be registered with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) database to be used.
In order to use it, a health insurance company has to give the user a digital footprint.
However, Okumori said the technology is not yet ready to use for tracking diseases.
“The digital footprint is not currently used for tracking disease, but it’s very useful for tracking illness, especially the risk of developing chronic diseases,” he said.
