A team of biomedical engineers have been hired by Apple to develop blood sugar detecting sensors

Tech mogul Apple has just hired a group of biomedical engineers to work on a new type of diabetes treatment. Rumor has it they are part of a super-secret initiative to develop sensors for monitoring blood sugar. The plan is supposedly initially envisioned by the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

The team working on the new diabetes treatment is situated at a nondescript office in Palo Alto, California. This is many miles away from the main corporate headquarters of Apple. Engineers from companies like Vital Connect, Masimo, Sano, Medtronic and C8 Medisensors have been scouted by Apple.

The sensors being developed are slated to work noninvasively and continuously in monitoring blood sugar levels. If the rumors are true then the discovery of such sensors will be equal to the "holy grail" in the field of life sciences, according to CNBC.

For one many have already tried and failed since tracking glucose levels accurately without invasive measures is highly complicated.

People on the inside claim that Appleā€™s initiative to detect glucose without piercing the skin is far enough they have started conducting feasibility trials. They have also hired consultants from the Bay Area to help figure out the regulatory pathways of the circulatory system.

The same sources reveal Apple has been working on this project for the last three years. Steve Jobs had envisioned the use of wearable devices to monitor vitals such as blood glucose, oxygen levels and heart rate.

Apple also acquired the company Cor back in 2010, which was working on sensor technology for the use of health and wellness. The new secret team will report directly to Johny Srouji who is the senior vice president of hardware technologies at Apple.
