Philips Vital Signs Camera

The Vital Signs Camera app from Philips performs a contactless measurement of your heart rate and breathing rate, simply by using the camera of your iPad 2 or iPhone 4S! It can even measure two people at the same time!

This breakthrough technology allows you to measure your vital signs in an easy and unobtrusive way.

The camera detects the small changes in the color of your face to measure your heart rate with beat-to beat accuracy. Likewise, the camera tracks the movements of your chest to measure your exact breathing rate.
