Apple has launched its Research app and started up its newest Watch and iPhone health studies, just after the outcomes of its heart-rate program with Stanford surfaced. This time around, it is expecting to uncover insights about female’s heart, health, hearing, and movement.
For the female’s health research, the firm is joining hands up with the NIH’s National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. The research “looks to study the affect of specific habits and behaviors on a broad breadth of reproductive health subjects,” Apple claimed.
It will see at menstrual cycle info and ask people for more info with monthly studies, in the expectations of getting deeper knowledge about cases such as PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), osteoporosis, infertility, and menopausal transition. Apple claims the multi-year research is the first long-end one “of this scope and scale.”
Apple is joining hands with the American Heart Association and Brigham and Women’s Hospital for its movement and heart research, which will look into factors that affect heart health and “possibly lead to deterioration in overall well-being and mobility.” People who participate can take log in via the Research application and look for their workouts using Apple Watch. The research might offer insights on how “specific details and mobility signals about heart rhythm and rate can serve as possible early warning signs of AFib (atrial fibrillation), declining mobility, or heart disease.”
The last study will gather headphone employment and environmental sound info using the Apple Watch Noise app and iPhone to see at how they impact hearing eventually. It will also see how exposure to sound eventually can impact stress levels and cardiovascular health. Apple’s operating on that project with the University of Michigan, info from which it will share with the WHO’s Make Listening Safe program.
