[prMac.com] Buenos Aires, Argentina - Announcing that AppTouch, the developers of HeartScan, has released their latest update. The HeartScan application allows for self heart monitoring by measuring a user's heart rate and determining the beats per second. People wanting to be involved in their own healthcare or those in training for an event, will especially appreciate the convenience and portability. Graphed results can be exported for later review.
HeartScan turns a user's iPhone or iPod touch into a heart rate measuring device. By pressing the bottom of the iPhone to the left pectoral or using the built-in microphone, a user is able to measure yourself of their heart beats per minute. A more accurate reading can be obtained by taking a twenty second scan, which has an accuracy range of or - four beats.
Results of scans can be viewed in graph form. The graph images can then be exported to a user's photo album for later review or showing a physician.
Although anyone will benefit from using this application, one of the developer's intended uses for HeartScan involves athletes. People training for an event can use the app to learn to control their pulse and heart rate.
The HeartScan app may be particularly handy for those with heart problems or people who simply want to be responsible for their own healthcare. Since HeartScan is contained on a mobile platform, it can accompany users wherever they go. It's at hand for checking to see if a heart rate is still in its safe zone.
