ME Support will buy you a Heart Rate Monitor

Many members have found that monitoring heart rate is very helpful in managing activity levels, and helping to avoid or reduce post-exertional malaise.

So if you purchase a Heart Rate Monitor/ Fitness Tracker, then ME Support (IOM) will refund the cost up to £35. Just send the receipt to me, and we will refund it.

We then ask that you send us some feedback after 3 months, 6 months and one year, about whether or not it has been of any benefit. You will need use of a smart phone or computer to download the results.

Using the monitor you will know your resting heart rate. You will then be able to work out your anaerobic threshold, which is the rate above which you are ‘doing too much’ which will result in post exertional malaise. You can programme the monitor to warn you at that point, so that you know to take a break.

Sorry the Bag Pack Sat 2 Sept has had to be cancelled.
