El Apple Watch es sin duda el dispositivo perfecto ya que está colocado en la muñeca, de esta forma tanto la detección como el control de la enfermedad de Parkinson podría ser mucho mejor y mejorar la vida de muchas personas.

Apple is very keen on patents and almost every week we see the company patenting novelties that might be introduced to its devices in the future. The Apple Watch is usually one of the protagonists , in recent weeks we have seen new control methods and “smart straps” patented by Apple.

Today we present you with a new patent that expands on the medical capabilities of the Apple Watch. We know that health is key to Apple’s strategy with its watch and now the company wants to help people with Parkinson’s . The patent suggests that a future Apple Watch could help doctors manage the symptoms of Parkinson’s patients and thus improve their treatments.

Today the Apple Watch has very important medical capabilities related to the heart, since it is able to detect arrhythmias and possible atrial fabrications. Now Apple wants to help more people and if this patent ends up becoming real it could be a great help to detect and recognize Parkinson’s disease .
