The telephone’s vibration shakes the cup, and its digital camera detects when the particle’s motion stops, indicating formation of a blood clot. The method is showcased in a brand new research Friday led by UW professor of laptop science and engineering Shyamnath Gollakota.

Gollakota and his colleagues will subsequent check the $35 blood clotting system with sufferers of their residence and are exploring commercialization. Gollakota additionally co-founded Wavely Diagnostics to detect ear an infection with an app and Sound Life Sciences, to observe respiratory.
