The MOCAheart is a handheld device that monitors a whole bunch of parameters that are key to your cardiovascular health, including heart rate, blood pressure and blood oxygen levels. While there are many smartphone apps and smartphone-attached gizmos out there that monitor cardiovascular parameters, the MOCAheart is said to be the most accurate and provide the highest quality and quantity of information.

To use the device, users simply have to place a finger on its optical finger and place a finger from the other hand on its stainless steel surface. Red and infrared lights and EKG sensors then measure electrical activity of the heart, blood oxygen levels and blood velocity, which is an indicator of blood pressure.

The developers of the MOCAHeart have managed to run an extremely successful Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for production of the device. Pledge levels of $119 are still available and will get you a MOCAheart unit if and when the product comes to full production. The final retail price is set at $169.
