Apple, the Cupertino-based company is silently working to develop Apple Watch in near future that will be equipped with non-invasive blood sugar level sensors that will be beneficial for diabetic patients. The reports also claim that the company has hired a small team of biomedical engineers to make this project a reality. There is a news that this biomedical team of engineers is working on a project at Palo Alto office instead of the main office.
Many biomedical companies have been working on such projects but they have not succeeded because monitoring the accurate blood sugar levels is a critical task. It will be interesting to see if Apple succeeds in this competition.
Blood Sugar Sensors Will Soon Roll Out To Apple Watches
There is a news that engineers appointed by Apple are working on this project since last five years and it seems that the company has begun the trials at clinics located in Bay areas, says CNBC reports. Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple was keenly interested in designing wearable devices like smartwatches that will be able to track oxygen level, heart rate, and blood sugar level.
The CNBC reports states that the company has hired 30 engineers along with major firms like Masimo Corp, Sano, Medtronic and C8 Medisensors. These hired people reported that company is indeed working on developing such product.
Will Futuristic Apple Watch Help People Suffering From Diabetes?
If Apple succeeds in developing such non-invasive blood sugar detection system it will be a boon for diabetic people and will help millions of people suffering from this silent killer. The smart watch will shine light through the skin to determine the blood sugar level. Steve Jobs believes that this technology will reduce the gap between heath care providers and patients causing the development of health kit and Apple Watch.
