The UK organization "Physios for ME" is performing a survey on the use of Heart Rate Monitoring for pacing in ME.

Although they are a British organization, the survey is open to all.
(In Britain, the term "physio" refers to physical therapists or "PTs".)

Excerpt:
We are pleased to present "an international survey of experiences and attitudes towards Pacing using a heart rate monitor for people with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome."

People with ME often use heart rate monitors to pace their activities but there has been very little research exploring the use and peoples experiences of this approach.

The aim of this study is to explore the experiences of and attitudes towards pacing with a heart rate monitor in people with ME.
