Scientists from the University of Southern California reported that a smartphone camera can replace a tonometer. As the leading researcher Niem Pakhlevan says, the new method will be more convenient and cheaper. The results of the research were published in the scientific online journal Scientific Reports.
To date, the pressure is measured with a tonometer. Sometimes, for a more accurate indication, the results of an electrocardiogram are necessary. The method, which was developed by scientists from the University of Southern California, is designed to facilitate this task. Its principle of operation is the "internal frequency algorithm".
To test the efficiency of this method, the team of experts checked the blood pressure level in 5012 patients. The results showed that the data obtained with the help of the smartphone camera turned out to be more accurate than the indicators of the tonometer.
