Facial blood flow patterns unlock health data during telemedicine consultations
NuraLogix, a pioneer in contactless health monitoring, unveiled Anura™ Telehealth, a platform that performs continuous health and vital sign measurements while on a video call at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. This is the latest addition to its Anura™ platform that uses conventional video cameras to extract facial blood flow information to accurately calculate a host of medical vitals and health risk assessments using numerous consumer devices in the hands of billions of people. The technology behind Anura can take over 30 medical-grade health vitals using any video-enabled device.
Face The Future
Anura™ is the only video-based contactless health monitoring solution that can measure vital signs and provide health risk assessments. Unlike smartwatches, health trackers, and rings that track blood flow through light sensors, Anura™ can do so with a video selfie. You can see it in action here.
Anura™ is powered by NuraLogix’s patented Transdermal Optical Imaging (TOI™) technology, a novel form of Remote Photoplethysmography (rPPG). It automatically detects a person’s face, identifies key regions of interest, and extracts blood flow information that is combined with powerful AI data models developed from more than 40,000 patients with multiple health conditions.
Results are delivered within its intuitive app, showing information on over 30 health parameters* such as heart rate, breathing rate, and cuff-less blood pressure, and providing health risk assessments for some of the most prevalent chronic conditions. This includes type 2 diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and mental health.
Vertical Meetings with Actual Health Stats
Anura™ Telehealth brings this technology into platforms to enhance remote patient monitoring and telemedicine, making them more valuable to both patients and healthcare professionals. The desktop-based platform performs continuous health and vital sign measurements while on a video call, including heart rate and cuff-less blood pressure. It provides richer interaction and appointments between patients and healthcare practitioners with the ability to provide real-time information and assist physicians in identifying future health risks.
It is designed for use in the telemedicine, remote patient management, and insurance industries. Key features of the platform include:
- Continuous real-time vital sign measurement
- Ability to integrate with video conference software such as Zoom
- Ability to integrate with telehealth software such as Doxy.me
- Customizable interfaces, templates, and reporting to accommodate different use cases
“Post-pandemic telemedicine has increasingly become the norm. While convenient and cost-effective, remote visits have until now lacked the ability for health professionals to carry out the routine health checks they would normally perform in the clinical setting,” said Dr. Keith Thompson, Chief Medical Officer at NuraLogix. “From heart rate to blood pressure, Anura™ allows this to occur in real-time while also helping physicians to leverage the power of AI and its potential to help identify, predict and prevent chronic and acute diseases.”
The ability to carry out risk health assessment is a game changer and a welcome assistance to medical professionals. Uniquely, Anura™ can assess HbA1c, monitor fasting glucose, and assess the risk of Type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and hypertriglyceridemia. Its research models have currently appeared in 10 global peer-reviewed research publications, with three additional publications in progress covering topics of hypertension, multi-year cardiovascular risk, diabetes, and fatty liver disease. The latest models have been proven to predict whether a subject’s HbA1c is greater than 5.7% or their Fasting Blood Glucose is greater than 5.5mmol/L to a clinically accurate level.
