NuraLogix app attains contactless BP measurement
January 4, 2023
LAS VEGAS – Researchers at Toronto-based NuraLogix, a global leader in Health Tech AI, announced that they have achieved the ‘Holy Grail’ of contactless blood pressure (BP) measurement using the company’s Anura app. NuraLogix is the creator of the world’s first contactless blood pressure measurement technology.
The company’s technology can measure 30+ health and wellness parameters using Transdermal Optical Imaging (TOI), a patented technique developed by the company in which a conventional video camera is used to extract facial blood flow information from the human face. The app can be used in popular smartphones, utilizing the phone’s camera and video capabilities.
“What is the Holy Grail of contactless blood pressure measurement? It’s when you can measure your blood pressure with an accuracy corresponding to a standard deviation of error of less than 8mmHg,” said NuraLogix CEO and co-founder Marzio Pozzuoli. “This represents a breakthrough achievement by the research team at NuraLogix and sets a new industry benchmark.”
Even more importantly, this level of accuracy was achieved without physiological calibration of the measuring device (i.e. Anura) to the individual having their blood pressure measured, the company said.
Previously in 2020, NuraLogix was the first to achieve this level of accuracy for contactless video camera-based BP devices with 85 subjects, which is the minimum requirement, according ISO 81060-2:2018 – the standard used by all BP devices to measure accuracy. The current testing was done on 554 subjects, which represents a new benchmark. It shows that the technology is more generalizable to a broader population.
It is the company’s intention to publish results as part of a planned series of clinical trials in the U.S and other countries in 2023.
NuraLogix is demonstrating this capability at the CES tradeshow, held from January 5-8, 2023 at the Las Vegas Convention Centre.
