Medical instruments are now personal possessions.

When my husband was diagnosed with diabetes about 10 years ago, we were worried mainly about the time consumed to commute to the hospital for frequent blood tests.

Nevertheless we had to undergo all those discomforts and related expenses like conveyance, doctor’s fee and the lab charges.

Then came the personal and handy glucometer and everything changed.

Like that a weak hearted patient can check his ECG at literally anywhere, anytime.

Everything, the manufactures of Heart Rate Monitors changed the life style of heart patients upside down.

A heart rate monitor is a device that allows a user to measure their heart rate in real time. It usually consists of two elements: a chest strap transmitter and a wrist receiver (which usually doubles as a watch).

Strapless heart rate monitors are available as well, but lack some of the functionality of the original design. Advanced models additionally measure heart rate variability to assess a user's fitness.

The first heart rate monitor was invented by the Australian physicist, Robert Treffene originally made with swimmers in mind.

The first EKG accurate wireless heart rate monitor was invented by Polar Electro Oy in 1977 as a training tool for the Finnish National Cross Country Ski Team.

The concept of "intensity training" by heart rate swept the athletic world in the eighties. By the 1990's individuals were looking to heart rate monitors not only for performance training needs, but also for achieving everyday fitness goals. Today, the same concept of heart rate training is being used by world-class athletes as well as everyday people.

Everything offers specialty heart rate monitors including heart rate monitors for biking and swimming from CardioSport, Polar, EKHO and Reebok.
