A Silicon Valley startup is designing mobile apps that take advantage of the smartphone's camera, accelerometer, and touch screen to help users monitor their health.

Azumio was founded in 2010 with the aim of turning the smartphone into a biofeedback device. Whether it's analyzing heart rate, controlling stress, or tracking sleep patterns, the apps can offer a better picture of a user's health. SmartPlanet gets a demo from Azumio's Jen Grenz.
