Apple Takes Two New Medical Sensor Experts on Board

Apple has just hired two additional staff members to help it in its sensor products-related team. Nancy Dougherty and Ravi Narasimhan have joined the huge conglomerate and are avidly lending their valued services to the company. 

Medical science has advanced to the point that we are seeing needle-less patches that can measure potassium levels. Already, Google has plans of releasing its blood glucose-measuring contact lenses. And Apple is not one to be left behind in the race for biometric products. It has thus obtained the aid of these two talented individuals. 

The iWatch, as a tool of measuring blood pressure, body temperature, and many other vital stats, may lie in store for the future. And yet there are a ton of other patents just waiting to be given solid form by the experts and managers at Apple. Wearable technology that can test samples of your blood and monitor heart rate and other fitness markers are just the tip of the iceberg. 

The degenerative diseases of a sedentary society are slowly creeping up to fill the vacuum left behind by the contagious illnesses of the previous century. This has led to diabetic monitors and obesity cures not to mention sensor-laden technology that tells the wearer what he or she is suffering from in a jiffy. The competition between the titans of technology has begun and it will serve humanity by its future innovations in biomedical sensor-laden gizmos.
