Apple Inc isn't about Macs, iPhone or watch. The company has expanded its roots to medical research too. Now, with the Apple's very own medical kit a user can sleep in peace and get the right information about any disease or medical illness without consulting a doctor. In the blink of an eye any disease or ailment will be diagnosed.
With Research Kit, researchers can easily create apps that take advantage of iPhone features to gather new types of data on a scale never available before. As we all should consider our health as first priority. Do take a peek at the features Apple's Medical kit has to offer its users.
Apple has been working with Parkinson's Disease research firms and other University researchers to set up the framework for medical research.
Several of the world's leading medical institutions are already using Research Kit to gain further insight into some of our most serious diseases, but Apple claimed that five apps are available as of now and are providing accurate results for their users.
If a user opts for it, then the users Apple device will ping you for research data and every user can have access to the data in Health App.
The medical kit will take care of short term diseases but astornishingly in lorn term diseases too such as Diabetes, Cardiovascular, Asthma and other research areas too.
It also has the ability for Breast Cancer research work.The Medical kit will be tracking post-op and post-treatment symptoms.
With Research Kit, User can use iPhone to gather data with far more regularity - daily or even hourly - as people go about their lives. And with advanced sensors like an accelerometer, barometer, and gyroscope, iPhone also provides Research Kit apps with data that is objective, accurate, and incredibly precise. Tests designed with Research Kit use the iPhone's sensors to record data. The touch screen can feel people tapping in rhythm to detect inconsistencies that may signal a disease. The accelerometer can compare the gait and balance of someone's walk against a healthy person's speed and posture. And the microphone can notice minute fluctuations in someone's voice that may indicate Parkinson's or another health problem.
Users choose what studies they want to join, they are in control of what information they provide to which apps, and they are in full control in terms of sharing.
With Research Kit, researchers can build out a medical testing app for iOS that's accessible to people far from their physical lab. Users can sign up with a digital signature, and instantly start recording data.
