Having revolutionized the music industry, Daniel Ek is now poised to bring about significant changes in healthcare technology.

Daniel Ek, founder of Spotify, has entered the healthcare industry with his latest venture, Neko Health. As co-founder of the startup, Ek is bringing to the market a body scan service powered by artificial intelligence. In a LinkedIn post, it was announced that after four years of research and development, Neko Health was officially launching. The company aims to provide a healthcare system that emphasizes preventative measures and early detection.

According to their website, the Swedish company offers non-invasive full-body scans that can detect growth of birthmarks, rashes, and age spots, as well as abnormalities in heart function, blood pressure, and pulse.

The 360-degree body scanner from Neko features more than 70 sensors, capable of collecting over 50 million data points on various aspects of the body such as skin, heart, respiration, microcirculation, etc. The gathered information is then analyzed by a self-learning AI system and presented to both patients and physicians. Patients can access their results during their appointment or even through an app where they can track their progress.

According to Nilsonne, the aim of the company is to establish a proactive healthcare system that prioritizes disease prevention. This is driven by the increasing cost of healthcare in both Sweden and the European Union. The full-body scans, which take just a few minutes, are available to the public in Sweden and cost SEK 2,000 ($190 USD). As of now, the scans are completely sold out.

It's premature to predict the effect that Neko Health may have on the healthcare sector, but it appears promising.
