Today, people are able to have information about their mental state, behavior, and health status in some issues from the features of the voices. The study involves calculating the heart rates of people using nonlinear equations with the help of the features of sound recordings. The model proposed for the study consists of the four inputs of the difference equation parameters which change with constant and variable sound features. When the experimental studies were examined, it was observed that the heart rate could be predicted with an accuracy of 89.76% by using 10s sound recordings. With the proposed equation, it is observed that the heart beat rate is related to the speech features, can be calculated these features with minimal error rate and also the nonlinear equation is presented in the literature.
