Samsung and the University of California San Francisco is launching a smartphone research app, My BP Lab giving users the opportunity to measure their blood pressure and stress levels on the new Samsung Galaxy S9/9 Plus.
The app also gives users personalised insights to help them improve their daily health.
In a post Samsung explains how the My BP app works, “My BP Lab leverages an innovative optical sensor available on the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, announced today, to provide users with richer, more accurate information about their health status. This optical sensor is built into the device, and allows blood pressure to be directly measured by the smartphone without any external hardware.”
Users of the app are invited to join a three-week UCSF research study that will track stress and how emotions experienced throughout the day affect your wellbeing.
It will be available on the Google Play store from March 15.
