How do the games respond to heart rate?

The system calculates a baseline heart rate. The goal is to keep heart rate in the Blue zone.
When heart rate rises above the Blue zone the Red zone starts growing.
If the player’s heart rate keeps rising, it enters the red zone--the screen pulses red and the game gets more difficult.

What’s normal for a child’s heart rate?

At all times when you’re using Mightier, the system constantly learns and adjusts a baseline heart rate that you use while playing the games. This allows us to accommodate the natural variations that we see day to day. The CDC publishes averages for pediatric heart rates, and they have a wide range. Heart rate can vary by external factors, including hydration and when you last ate. If you have questions about your child’s heart rate, you should consult your doctor.
