Next-gen Apple Watch to Detect Heart Abnormalities
Apple Watch is predicted to contain an advanced form of heart-monitoring technology, according to a report published in Bloomberg on December 21, 2017.
The future version of the Apple Watch would use electric signals to detect heart abnormalities, defects, and other potential indicators of cardiovascular illness. Electrocardiograms usually use multiple electrodes placed directly on the skin, to monitor otherwise imperceptible electrical patterns in between heartbeats.
However, the apple device will enable testing of such data, by simply requiring a user to squeeze the device. Data would be gathered from minor electric currents sent up the arm and across the chest to the heart of the wearer, measuring data gathered by the electrodes on the skin. This allows for non-invasive diagnosis and convenient real-time tracking for people at risks for stroke or heart failure. The users would receive a constant stream of EKG data, which would in turn, enable doctors to be better informed about the diagnosis and treatment at early stages of potential illnesses. Apple is attempting to make its Apple Watch function as a medical tool and not simply a fitness device.
In November 2017, Apple partnered with Stanford University to study tracking of Apple Watch users’ heart rhythms for irregularity. The current model’s heart rate monitor can collect data of irregularities, however, more advanced forms of tracking and testing such as EKGs, would require all new hardware and software.
With this potential launch and many others prior, Apple is planning on entering into the healthcare devices sector. The demand for wearable medical devices is increasing, with the increasing incidence of cardiovascular and other illnesses that require constant tracking. This in turn, is expected to boost revenue returns for manufacturers of such devices, as reported by wearable medical devices market report published by Coherent Market Insights.
