More people in more countries can now participate in My BP Lab, a research study that uses surveys and sensor data from Samsung mobile phones (models: S9, S9+, Note9, S10, S10+) and Galaxy Watch Active. Version 2.0 of the app is now available in Canada, Australia, India, Singapore, Hong Kong, and the United Kingdom – in addition to the United States.
The study, which initially launched in 2018, is led by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, and their in-country research partners. Sage Bionetworks developed the apps for both the mobile and wearable devices, and provided data management. Sage also helped to oversee in-country legal review.
My BP Lab 2.0 includes updates and new features:
- Game-like cognitive tasks/challenges that measure your memory, attention, and cognitive flexibility. This helps to examine how stress and daily experiences influence cognitive capacity from one moment to the next.
- Light-weight stress management interventions that teach you skills to help reduce stress.
- Galaxy Watch Active integration to make it easy to measure blood pressure with just a few touches.
