What is the accuracy level of the measurements?
The measurements are taken according to rigorous standards and are constantly tested with medical equipment.
Is it better than a smart watch?
Smart watches provide great added value when it comes to continuous monitoring. The BVue app delivers an on demand monitoring tool available from a device that most people already have, like a smarthphone or a tablet. No purchase of extra equipment needed.

Each feature developed for the BVUE app has been tested with the equivalent FDA approved devices, such as MASIMO, OMRON, GE and others.

Does it work for any age?
The app has been tested on subjects between the ages of 4 and 96, and it is consistently accurate.
Does it work in the dark?
The app applies illumination normalization and can therefore function well even in low light environments, though not completely in the dark. Some light is necessary for the camera to detect there is a human face in the video.
How far should I keep the camera from my face?
For best results, we recommend keeping the camera no farther than 60 cm / ~ 20 inches.
Do I have to stand still during the measurements or can I move?
The app compensates for movements and you will notice that four blue corners around your head move together with your face as you move. Nevertheless, your face needs to show within the frame of the camera itself. For best results though – we recommend standing still or sitting.
Does it work while I walk, run, or drive?
The app should work while you walk or drive, but it’s not recommended for use while running.
How can I see my history and trends?
To be able to see the history and trends of your vital sign measurements, from the app’s menu, press “History” and you will be able to see all your recorded scans as well as 7, 14 or 21 days measurements trends. You may delete your measurements data at any time.
Does it recognize who I am?
No, the app does human face detection, not facial recognition. No video or image of the person is being saved.
Does Binah.ai record my measurements?
Do I need to consult my doctor if my measurements are not within normal range?

Does it work on photos too?
No, the app works on video only.
