Though selfie is an obsession and many people have lost their lives in order to take a perfect selfie video. However, something bad can be turned to good. Scientists have discovered that one can measure blood pressure via selfie videos. Now you do not need to go to the doctor, instead check your blood pressure via a selfie video, thanks to the imaging technology.
The researchers make the research of the University of Toronto. They released a report, telling that soon you will only need selfie video to measure your body’s blood pressure. This will be carried on by a new technology named as transdermal optical imagine(TOI).
How transdermal optical imagine technology works:
Basically, smartphones are outfitted with optical sensors that can capture light reflected from haemoglobin under our skin. It permits TOI to envision and also measure the changes in our blood flow.
For testing, the researchers’ users TOI to check two minutes selfie videos of 1,328 adults. THe videos were recorded by an iPhone. By measuring blood pressure by selfie video, the team achieved 95% accuracy.
ang Lee, lead author of the study published in the journal Circulation: Cardiovascular Imaging said that:
“From the video captured by the technology, you can see how the blood flows in different parts of the face and through this ebb and flow of blood in the face, you can get a lot of information. If you set up a computer or your phone, you can get a doctor who is, let’s say, in Toronto and then you can talk to each other and diagnose simultaneously,”
