Improving upon its predecessor, My BP Lab 2.0 provides three major innovations: game-like cognitive tasks, stress management training, and smartwatch integration. The app measures your attention, cognitive flexibility, and memory with game-like tasks. The objective is to examine daily experiences and stress’ influence on cognitive capacity. The stress management component comprises short videos, which teach you skills needed to help blood pressure and stress. The smartwatch integration module lets you connect the app to your Galaxy Active smartwatch so that you could measure your pressure right from your watch using a few steps.
Contribute to Science
The app not just helps you with medical data, but you are also contributing to medical science by using this program. Your participation would lend to scientific knowledge pertaining to blood pressure and stress in routine life. User participation would also help enhance blood pressure measurement through wearables and smartphones. Moreover, during study, you would get insight information into how much and when you experience different levels of stress, well-being, sleeping pattern information, and your body’s response to stress.
