Check Your Pulse? There's an app for that! Cardiograph!


The iPad and iPhone are so versatile. Some apps are becoming creative. One is Cardiograph which takes your pulse! You just start the app by pressing a button then put your index finger over the camera and in a few seconds your pulse reading comes up. It works pretty good but has to be in a bright room. The app is not free–it costs $1.99 (Dr. Z gets no commission for referring you to such apps.) There are similar apps out there but Dr. Z cannot vouch for them.

The link for Cardiograph in the iTunes store is as follows: Cardiograph Link

There are now apps that work with other monitors such as blood pressure, taking your weight, etc.

Remember those apps do not take place of your doctor! Dr. Z is a “doctor” only for VRS and video related applications.

Dr. Z cares about your health.

So easy so simple!

By the way, if you need video communication (VP or VRS), why not try Z5, you will like it! Click here to get it! (See if you qualify to get a FREE tablet with a stand!)
