Taiwanese start-up FaceHeart’s video-based measurement software uses AI to remotely measure patients’ vital statistics
TAIPEI, July 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The pandemic has forced most processes and operations to be conducted remotely, and the medical industry is not exempt. Fortunately, innovative new video measurement software from the company FaceHeart now allows patients to be diagnosed remotely using state-of-the-art artificial intelligence. FaceHeart recently exhibited at VivaTech 2022 at Paris, France to other startups and leaders, showing the company’s latest AI technology.
Non-contact measurements by video
The technology, called FH Vitals, enables remote, non-contact measurements by analyzing a patient’s face through remote image processing. The artificial intelligence component then scans the image and provides valuable information about the patient’s health status.
According to FaceHeart, the FH Vitals app can show results in just 60 seconds or less, and will work up to five meters away from the video camera or web camera of your chosen device. And with the FH Vitals SDK, it can be adapted to work in a variety of devices, from smartphones to laptops and other medical devices.
FH Vitals can be used to measure important parameters such as heart rate, heart rate variability, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, respiratory rate, stress index and even atrial fibrillation, which can indicate abnormal heart rhythms.
According to FaceHeart, their AI technology is based on extensive data collected from clinical trials which is then used to calibrate its algorithms and achieve medical-grade accuracy.
Application in different sectors
With such a convenient and efficient means of augmenting early diagnosis, FaceHeart is confident that FH Vitals software will be useful in industries such as telemedicine to help provide critical information for remote treatment protocols. It can also be useful for proactively managing health and wellness in corporate and home environments. And finally, its facial recognition and monitoring can even be used to improve the customer experience of financial services.
All of these services can be customized and enhanced according to a customer’s needs through the FH Vitals SDK or Software Development Kit, now available in the market.
At the moment, FH Vitals can only be used on Android devices, but the company does not rule out expanding to other operating systems in the future. Its FDA/CDE application for its Software Clearance as a Medical Device (SaMD) is also already underway, to further assure its customers and users of its medical-grade accuracy.
According to FaceHeart, he has his sights set on United States, Europeand Japan current markets.
