Blood Pressure App, Hardware Rivals Arm Cuff Accuracy

Blood pressure app rivals arm cuff's accuracy

Researchers Develop Smartphone App to Measure Blood Pressure Through Smartphone

"We targeted a different artery, the transverse palmer arch artery at the fingertip, to give us better control of the measurement", said Anand Chandrasekhar, doctoral student at MSU.

It is a good time for the smartphones to become more useful than communication. He further added, "We were excited when we validated this location". Stanard measurement devices use the brachial artery as the conventional measurement point, but the team discovered that measuring BP on fingertip arteries was very easy and exact.

According to World Health Organization report, around 7.5 million deaths worldwide are caused by raised blood pressure.

The new app technology has been developed by integrating two sensors in it, as an optical sensor located on a top of the force sensor. The optical sensor lies on top of the force sensor in a compact unit housed in a one centimeter-thick case attached to the back of the phone. Clients turn on the application and press at the tip of their finger against the sensor unit. With their finger on the unit, they hold their phone at heart level and watch their smartphone screen to ensure they're applying the correct amount of finger pressure. "We were pleased to see that 90 percent of the people trying it were able to do it easily after just one or two practice tries". Raised blood pressure is a major risk factor for coronary heart disease and ischemic as well as hemorrhagic stroke. Apart from this, raised blood pressure is also the reason behind heart failure, renal impairment, visual impairment and retinal hemorrhage.
