Reviewer: Paralysis Resource Center, Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, USA
Review: “Maintaining a healthy heart rate is important for a wheelchair user. By holding up your index finger to the device’s camera for approximately 10 seconds, the app will get a reading on your heart rate, and compare it to the range you should be in based on your age. Your device needs to have a camera.”
