With the increase in cases of covid 19 cases in India, oximeters have become an essential item in one’s day-to-day life.
However, due to more demand for this, the prices of this device are been hiked by both manufactures and suppliers. A well-ranged oximeter can easily cost around 2000 nowadays. Which can be a bit uncomfortable to purchase for many people.
So as an alternative to an oximeter, Kolkata-based health start-up developed a mobile app called Careplix. CarePlixVitals monitor one’s blood oxygen level, pulse, and respiratory rate.
How can one use Careplix?
All one needs to do is use the mobile app and place a finger on the phone’s rear camera and flashlight and within 40 secs the oxygen rate (SPO2), pulse, and respiratory rates are seen on device.
The CareplixVital’s app is a registration-based application. As the registration is to determine the strength of finger placement, the stronger the placement more accurate will be the result.
