Heart rate is the main data that shows if the heart is working properly. Therefore, obtaining the heart rate information has a vital importance. There are some methods to measure the heart rate, but the most commonly used one is the Electrocardiography (ECG). However, this method is expensive and non-portable. Therewithal, optical studies have recently been conducted to measure heart rate. Being non-invasive, inexpensive, and safe are the advantages of optical measurements. Laser speckle contrast imaging is an effective and simple technique for imaging heterogeneous environments such as human and animal tissues. By laser speckle contrast analysis, heart rate can be obtained easily. It is the standard technique, but fractal analysis method is also very convenient way to study speckle images because speckle pattern is quite appropriate for studying fractality due to its granular structure. In this paper, we present fractal analysis method for obtaining heart rate information from speckle images. The results of this method for the various in-vivo and in-vitro data were compared with the reference model results of speckle contrast analysis method and it is observed that the proposed analysis method has provided sufficient results.
