Apple, Stanford Medicine team up to research heart rhythm via Apple Watch
01 December, 2017, 06:42 | Author: Rolando Keller
STANFORD MEDICINE researchers are working with Apple on a research study to determine whether the Apple Watch's heart-rate sensor can identify irregular heart rhythms associated with a condition known as atrial fibrillation. "These stories inspire us and we're determined to do more to help people understand their health". "But the challenge is, many people with AFib don't feel symptoms, so it often goes undiagnosed". The study is open to anyone who wishes to participate - as long as they are at least 22 years of age and they own an Apple Watch Series 1 (not 1st generation) or above. Using software algorithms, the Apple Watch can isolate heart rhythms from other noise, and identify an irregular heart rhythm. "So we're expanding that work and today we're announcing the Apple Heart Study".
The first Apple Heart Study was launched today in the U.S., and every Apple Watch owner over the age of 22 can - and should - enroll as soon as possible. Participants will also get a free consultation with a study doctor and an ECG patch for additional monitoring. American Well is providing the telemedicine services.
Loyld Minor, dean the Stanford University School of Medicine, said the Apple Heart Study will help medical researchers "explore how technology like Apple Watch's heart rate sensor can help usher in a new era of proactive healthcare central to our precision health approach".
This study takes all of that a step further: Now Apple itself will be running a study and submitting data to the Food and Drug Administration.
