Health Technology is Apple new call.

Apples Health Technology has hired two new engineers who have both worked with portable medical instruments, an area that now seems to bet big.

It has long been known that Apple is interested in the connection between modern portable electronics and medicine and health. A number of patent applications has proven this, but no actual products have not yet seen the light of day, and many have speculated about whether the much spoken of ” iWatch ” clock can be focused on measuring your body in different ways.

An announces from Macrumors says that Apple has expanded its development team with two new engineers, Nancy Dougherty and Ravi Narasimhan thats only will work with this.

Nancy Dougherty worked previously at Sano Intelligence developing biosensors and she was partly responsible for hardware development of a product that would measure blood levels continuously using “microneedles”. Previously she was on the Proteus Digital Health and worked with a “patch” that measure heart rate, breathing, movement and temperature and sends the data via bluetooth.

Ravi Narasimhan comes from Vital Connect, a new company developing biosensors. He was responsible for the development of hardware and algorithms to efficiently keep track of the body via portable sensors. He has also published numerous articles on the subject and stands with the inventor of dozens of patents.
