If a person is obese, his chance of heart disease is greatly increased. Many in this situation are not receiving routine medical check-ups and may be unaware of additional risk factors. While they are not a substitute for examination by a professional health care provider, applications that engage and educate a user could end up saving a life.

HeartCheck helps to evaluate a user’s risk of suffering from a heart attack or having a sudden stroke. The user starts by entering gender and age. Then she answers a few questions about any episodes of chest pain. The interview proceeds according to the answers. At the end she receives a recommendation. The questions are typical of those normally part of a preliminary doctor’s examination.

The app also includes definitions of common terms in the field and tips for good heart health.
