FaceHeart Vitals: Facial Recognition AI to Monitor Health Signs

Stressed healthcare systems around the world have shown an unmet need for easy and remote monitoring of key physiological data during a global pandemic. Dr. Bing-Fei Wu, founder of a healthcare solutions provider, FaceHeart Corporation, and chair professor at National Chiao Tung University, understands this need, saying that “a good modern healthcare solution should be able to solve problems in the background, without taking up critical expertise or resources.”

With that, Wu and his company launched its patented AI technology called FaceHeart Vitals during CES 2022. The technology can enable seamless access to vital sign measurement using existing consumer devices, including smartphones.

In order to take advantage of cameras on mobile phones, tablets, and other smart devices, FaceHeart Vitals has been developed to bridge this gap. Using the application, a person’s heart rate, heart rate variability, blood pressure, blood oxygen level, respiratory rate, and stress index value may all be measured within 60 seconds or less. Since its inception,  it has completed clinical trials that have generated 76 million datasets, ensuring that its biometric data is accurate enough for medical use.

Dr. Mau-Chung Chang, former president of NCTU, explains that FaceHeart Vitals would only need to analyze the user’s face. From there, the app can track six critical statuses just by the data it gets from the user: activity, sleep, equilibrium, metabolism, health, and relaxation.

Versatility for all kinds of uses

FaceHeart Vitals is a versatile application with a low entry barrier. Clients can use the app as a way to track vital statistics and improve training methods or exercise programs.

In a medical setting, the app can prove to be useful as a tool to analyze and remotely monitor a patient’s health. Having this kind of access to medical support is especially important during this time as people are still stuck at home due to the ongoing pandemic. This way, FaceHealth Vitals can provide medical experts with reliable data about their patients who are recovering in the comfort and safety of their homes.

The company has already begun expanding the usage of FaceHeart Vitals, such as allowing clinical consultations online for clinicians to retrieve physiological data from remote patients in real-time. The company is also applying to have the application approved by FDA as a Software as a Medical Device (SaMD).
