Vital Signs Camera

We have all heard this before: there is almost nothing you can’t do on an iPhone or iPad. Vital Signs Camera is another proof for that. It is an exciting application that measures your heart and breathing rates using the camera available on your iPad 2. As you can tell, the app does not work on the first generation iPad. But it does make measuring your heart rate as easy as looking into your iPad 2’s camera.

Vital Signs Camera measures your heart rate from the color of your face. It also acts as a motion detector to figure out your breathing rate based on the motion of your chest. You don’t have to hold or touch your iPad to get readings. Just place your iPad on a tablet, get your face in the marked section on your screen and go from there.

We did get fairly accurate readings with this app. You do need to make sure you stay still and position your body the right way. It is a nice tool to get quick readings on your tablet.
