OKLAHOMA CITY -- One of the latest apps for the iPhone was created in Oklahoma and allows you to monitor your heart rate anywhere you go.

Dr. David Albert of Oklahoma City has patented a device and app that can fit on your iPhone and be used to monitor and send ECG signals to a health care provider, and it is all for under $100.

"This is the same accuracy, meets the same specifications as the EKG device that they would use on you in Integris Medical Center," Albert said.

The device not only monitors your heart beats but can be switched over to be used as a biofeedback device to help your stress levels.

Albert said the device will be available as soon as it receives FDA approval.
