The Jabra Sport Pulse special edition headphones are the outcome of a collaboration between Jabra, the headset manufacturing company, and TrainerMD, an accredited software platform that helps doctors work track patients' health. These new headphones have software capabilities that allow for fitness testing and in-ear heart rate monitoring, streaming real-time workout data to doctors.

The Jabra Sport Pulse headphones can relay data that includes heart rate, calories burned, pace and other vital information to doctors' TrainerMD dashboards, all while playing music to ease the patient's workout. Using this innovation, doctors will be able to gain a better understanding of their patients' physical conditions than they could have based on reports from personal trainers and first-person reporting from the patients themselves.
