Apple gets a patent for a wearable device on the cuff equipped with a sensor to control the blood pressure rate.
It seems that Apple is very interested in health care products and takes the company beyond medical care applications. According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Apple was recently granted a portable device patent that is used to track the patient’s blood pressure when it is too high or too low. It is expected that the portable bracelet present a touch screen and that it is compatible with Bluetooth.
Reportedly, a blood pressure monitoring system is composed of a pressure sensor, an expandable structure composed of a large number of expandable cells, is within expandable cells there are at least three expandable cells or two repetitive expandable cells and a Expansion actuator configured to expand the expandable member.
The design is unquestionably similar to any other blood pressure measuring device that works through airbags or cells that exert great pressure on users’ arms and cut off blood flow. Then, the device obtains a measurement of the maximum cardiac output which is what we call systolic pressure and then obtains a resting output called diastolic pressure.
According to the patent, the new Apple device plans to have one or more sensors in each air bag to control blood pressure as it flows through the user’s arm or leg. There is also an “actuator” to measure how much pressure is needed to get a good reading without completely crushing the user’s arm.
Yesterday we reported that Apple is adding a new Application Programming Interface (API) to its ResearchKit framework that will allow Apple Watch to monitor the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. In a world where neural diseases and blood pressure are increasing more and more, Apple’s decision to focus on health care needs makes sense.
