Teachers to Monitor Heart Rates

DUBUQUE, IA (AP) - Dubuque teachers will be able to monitor students' heart rates through a web-based program while they exercise at school.

The program gives Dubuque Community School District teachers an idea of physical activity levels by middle school and high school students while they exercise in class.

Students will place a strap containing a heart sensor around their chests. The sensors will send data about the students' heart rates that will be projected onto a screen or wall in class while they're exercising.

The online application that collects the data is called Polar GoFit. It also shows how close a student is to reaching his or her target heart rate.
