Azumio apps: In good health

Tech Industry
-Hi, I'm Boonsri Dickinson, a contributor for CNET. I'm here with Bojan Bostjancic CEO of Azumio, a startup company that creates health monitoring apps for mobile devices. Welcome. -Thanks for having me here Boonsri. -So, you're gonna show me 2 apps. One is an instant heart rate app and the second is stress check app. -Right, instant heart rate is the most popular biofeedback app that turns a smart phone into a heart rate monitor. It was downloaded by more than 8 millions times and we develop this for the for android ** for the iOS. -I'm really curious to find out how the instant heart rate one works. So can I try it out? -Sure, the instant heart rate is a very simple app to use and it only requires the smart phone. No other gadgets are involved. Put your finger on a camera for about 10 seconds. -So, it takes 10 seconds? -It takes about 10 seconds and it displays the graph of the paths as well as the average number. So, if you remove the finger, it will tell you about your average rate and it' very much in the range. So, you have -I'm very -elevated -I'm poor-- I need to-- It tells me that I need to exercise, and so it has social sharing feature, so I can actually upload to Facebook or Twitter if I wanted to. -You can post these results and share this with your friends on Facebook. You could also Tweet about this measurement. -Can you show my how the stress check works? -Sure, the stress check obligation is the first one that used biofeedback mechanism to quantify the stress the level. When you get the stress, the heart rate actually is driven by the stress hormones in your body and it's never constant. So, one we detect the signal, it takes about 2 minutes complete the measurement and getting of statistics to measure the stress level very precisely. I have quite an elevated stress level like 50% at this point of time. -Uh huh. -which is not surprising. My typical level is like one 1% to 2%. I could also store these results on Azumio cloud and I could share these results on a social network like Facebook. -Who's this being used for. I wouldn't share this with my Facebook friends, but I would definitely wanna show my doctor. -It's definitely the information that has the most value for yourself, but increasing the awareness about the heart rate and for example stress levels among your social network or friends is also extremely important. The study shows that more people are socially connected, the least they are affected by chronic disease. -Thanks for joining me today. I'm Boonsri Dickinson for CNET.
