Healthcare-Tech in focus: around Apple, the sensors for potential developments are particularly finely adjusted. And even if Apple traditionally communicates very sparingly: The company’s job advertisements are a reliable source of news and trends. The US media company CNBC is just pointing out that Apple is looking for developers to expand the range of its own processors. One focus is on healthcare. CNBC quotes an Apple posting: The new employees should “help develop health, wellness, and fitness sensors”.
One possible field of application is Apple Watch. It already has functions to measure heart rate and activity data. Relevant blogs from Silicon Valley such as Venturebeat have already included the news. What is interesting is that Apple is obviously in the process of bringing the development of healthcare technology in-house. This would be a clear indication of the priority this issue has for the most valuable company in the world.
