Low-cost device uses temperature sensors to detect skin cancer

The team behind a low cost and non-invasive melanoma detection device named sKan have been chosen as the international James Dyson Award 2017 winners by The James Dyson Foundation. The group of medical and bioengineering undergraduates from McMaster University, Canada, are behind sKan, about which James Dyson said, “By using widely available and inexpensive components, the sKan allows for melanoma skin cancer detection to be readily accessible to the many. It’s a very clever device with the potential to save lives around the world.” The team plans to use the USD 40,000 prize money to reiterate and refine their design to ensure it passes the US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) standards.
