Apple Has Launched Health Detector Watch

An amazing innovation done by Apple that was the announcement of 2 major healthcare features this week. This terrific innovation may event keep people alive.
According to Apple, later this year, the watch will be able to detect if a person has suffered a fall and no longer moving thus will call automatically an emergency service. It will also be able to detect whether you have any heart problem and need to go visit any doctor.
There were other devices that offered similar functions in the past. But with an estimated 50 million Apple Watches out there already, there are concerns about the pressures it may bring to already-strained healthcare systems.
This will increase the number of calls in the emergencies and according to one of Britain’s leading surgeons, a new wave of technology-driven hypochondria.
Richard Kerr, chairman of the Royal College of Surgeons’ commission on the future of surgery said, “Medical professionals will also need to be vigilant to the risk of misdiagnosis and overtreatment that this proliferation of personalized health information could bring”.
Brian Fontes, chief executive of the US National Emergency Number Association (NENA), represents an often overlooked and underpaid part of our communities they are emergency calls handlers. He is well-versed in the history of new technologies designed to make access to emergency calls easier. Even some are providing more than others.
There were incidents happens each year on Valentine’s day that the security firms see spikes in false alarm. But later been found out that the big red balloons written “I love you” had set off the system’s movement sensors.
Mr. Fontes said, “These are the real beginnings of exciting innovation. I don’t see, at least initially, an overwhelming number of false positives coming in. But only time will tell.
However, he didn’t completely welcome the technology with open arms. He also said, “This is one of things that I want to follow up with Apple. Are they working on an education campaign with 911 centres? How will that 911 professional who answers that call understand what’s happening?
It should be a high priority. If you live long enough you’re able to tell what succeeds and what doesn’t. Where there’s an education programme associated with innovation, it’s a much easier thing to enable when it comes to 911”.
