Apple is not new to healthcare, not is it new to turning something boring into something the public loves. This is evident in the latest rumors claiming that Apple may be creating a regulated cardiac device with the help of their new AirPod headphones.
Apple currently has an all-encompassing Health App monitoring activity, sleep, mindfulness, and nutrition. Their HealthKit, ResearchKit, and CareKit allow developers to use all of the health data collected to build new robust apps intended to create even better personal health monitoring experiences. The vision of using AirPods as a regulatory device would include monitoring capabilities of the Health App functionality will create a personal health assistant for each user; the assistant would be dedicated to encouraging you to take a walk before bed, eat a lighter lunch after a big breakfast, or even to run faster.
While Apple has not confirmed whether the rumors are true, and health-related technology can take years to be approved by the FDA, this is still an exciting milestone in the world of healthcare to think about. This has the chance to transform and inspire how individuals take care of themselves. To learn more about the possibilities of this type of technology in our future, visit here.
