US­ING IPHONE X MO­BILE DE­VICE

The Independent on Saturday - - LIFESTYLE -

Re­searchers have de­vel­oped a novel blood pres­sure (BP) ap­pli­ca­tion that can give ac­cu­rate read­ings us­ing an iPhone, with­out re­quir­ing any spe­cial equip­ment.

De­vel­oped by Michi­gan State Univer­sity re­searchers, the new iPhone X app mea­sures BP via the “os­cil­lo­met­ric fin­ger-press­ing method”.

The ap­pli­ca­tion, fea­tured in the jour­nal Sci­en­tific Re­ports, still needs to be val­i­dated in a stan­dard reg­u­la­tory test. | IANS
