Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
There are several apps that can check your heart rate by using the camera on your smartphone, but they may not be the most accurate way.  If you're looking for a more reliable, personal EKG check out Kardia Mobile!  Kardia Mobile by AliveCor is a sleek device that allows users to take a medical-grade EKG in just 30 seconds.
The device is easy to use: simply place your fingers on Kardia Mobile's pads and results will be sent directly to your smartphone.  There are two plan options after purchase: basic and premium.  Both allow you to record your heartbeat with Instant Analysis.  But premium also offers:
  1. Unlimited storage and history
  2. Summary reports for your doctor
  3. Blood pressure monitoring
  4. Weight and medication tracking
