Soon you won't need any specialized devices or sensors to measure your blood pressure. The new app will take care of everything the only application that you can download for free from Google Play i Apple Store, informs Engadget.
Specifically, we are talking about the application Anurawhose capabilities and capabilities are constantly being expanded by its developers. As we indicated at the beginning of the article, they are working on the implementation of the possibility of measuring blood pressure through a new one TOI technology (transdermal optical imaging) developed Kangom Lee and Paul Zheng from the University of Toronto.
How will the news work?
Optical sensors in your smartphone capture red light reflected from hemoglobin under the skin, which in turn allows the TOI technology to measure changes in blood flow.
Regarding the success and accuracy of these measurements, from 1 328 peopleon which the news was tested, the results were accurate except for 95%which is very decent.
All captured images remain with you. However, this does not apply to the data that is directed to the cloud for analysis, however quite anonymously.
It should also be added that users will probably have to pay for the app (or some of its features) in the future, so that developers have all the resources to make improvements.
We should wait for the possibility of measuring blood pressure in autumn this year.
