Interesul Apple legat de introducerea senzorilor medicali in produsele proprii este bine cunoscut, iar rapoarte recente sustin ca Apple face cercetari pentru prezicerea atacurile de cord folosind senzori audio. Aceste cercetari sunt conduse de Tomlinson Holman, omul din spatele standardului de sunet THX, care s-a alaturat Apple in 2011.

“Though Apple has never confirmed it, the company hired Holman in 2011 to “provide audio direction,” according to his LinkedIn profile. At the time, observers assumed Holman would focus his efforts on boosting the audio quality of MacBooks and iPhones.

But under Holman, Apple is exploring ways to measure noise “turbulence” as it applies to blood flow. The company wants to develop software and sensors that can predict heart attacks by identifying the sound blood makes as it tries to move through an artery clogged with plaque, the source said.”

Raportul indica si interesul Apple in brevetele de inventie legate de analize ale inimii cum ar fi capacitatea cuiva de a se autentifica bazat pe ritmul cardiac unic. iWatch de la Apple se zvoneste ca va avea o multime de senzori pentru monitorizarea unei mari varietati de analize de sanatate si ca device-ul va fi lansat mai tarziu in acest an.
