Apple hiring more medical sensor experts

Apple recently hired two medical sensor experts as the company continues to expand its research into wearable devices. A recent report notes Apple has hired Nancy Dougherty from Sano Intelligence and Ravi Narasimhan from Vital Connect. At Sano, Dougherty specialized in unobtrusive blood reading, working as the lead hardware engineer for a patch worn on the skin to measure blood levels. Narasimhan was vice president of research and development at Vital Connect, possessing experience in biosensors, including patents for measuring a user’s respiratory rate and a detection system that can tell if a person has fallen. It’s believed that Apple may institute biometric technologies in its rumored iWatch or other future devices. A previous report noted Apple’s smart watch would focus on fitness. [via 9to5Mac]
