The new app leverages the optical sensor on the new Galaxy S9 and S9+ which can provide feedback on user's blood pressure and stress levels even without an external hardware. It can obtain personalized insights which can be used to improving daily health.

One goal of the My BP Lab is to get a better understanding of blood pressure and stress levels to manage health effectively.

According to Samsung, the My BP Lab app provides users with richer, more accurate information about their health status.

At Samsung, we have a firm commitment to the health and well-being of our users, said Peter Koo, Senior VP and leader of the Health Service Team at Samsung Electronics. That’s why we developed a revolutionary optical sensor in the Galaxy S9 and S9+. We are pleased to be partnering with UCSF to utilize this sensor and contribute to research that will provide our users with crucial and meaningful feedback about their health.

This study could provide the largest dataset yet on stress, daily emotional experiences, and blood pressure, said Wendy Berry Mendes, PhD, a professor of psychiatry at UCSF and the Director of the Emotion, Health, and Psychophysiology Lab. Our partnership with Samsung could help people all over the world improve their health by managing stress.

The My BP Lab app will be available to download from the Google from Google Play Store starting March 15. It is available for users in the United States who are eighteen years of age and older.
