What will a User experience when conducting a FaceScan?

After the initial set up, a FaceScan should take roughly 60 seconds to complete.

FaceScan enables a quick and easy way to estimate vital signs and predict risks associated with chronic disease. Using the camera on your smartphone, FaceScan can predict estimated heart rate, respiration rate, and blood pressure in under 30 seconds. Our technology is supported by clinical studies in over 2,000 candidates to validate the accuracy of measurements. The data from the studies were used to create training models in order to predict and provide risk ratings for cardiovascular disease, stroke, and heart attack.

When a User accesses FaceScan for the first time, they will be asked to input their personal details such as;

  • Gender at birth.
  • Height.
  • Weight.
  • Age.  

As well as other information regarding their health such as;  

  • Smoking history.
  • Diabetes.
  • Hypertension.
  • Blood medications.

This information is only required once.  

The User will then follow an on-screen step guide on how to complete a successful scan. Directions will include how to position the face, removing intrusions such as heavy make-up, eyewear, baseball caps/hats, and ensuring the User has even lighting across the face.  

At the bottom of the screen, a 1-to-5-star rating will indicate the quality of the scan being captured. Users are encouraged to reach 5-stars for a highly successful scan, however, the minimum acceptability criteria is 3-stars.

The scan itself takes a total of 30 seconds, and the results will appear on screen in the seconds following a scan’s completion.  If the conditions are correct, then the Scan will typically take less than a minute to complete. A User can experience longer completion times if they are needing to adjust for the minimum star rating.
