Además de el iPhone y el Apple Watch, también se utilizaron datos recopilados de Beddit , una empresa comprada por Apple que se encarga de monitorear el sueño. Y según la cofundadora de Evidation, estos dispositivos pueden ser efectivos para detectar un deterioro cognitivo leve y una enfermedad como el Alzheimer . En este tipo de enfermedades un diagnóstico temprano puede mejorar sustancialmente la calidad de vida de estas personas, a pesar de que se trata de enfermedades que no podemos detener.

We know that health is critical to Apple and in recent years the company has focused many efforts in this field with devices such as the Apple Watch Series 4. Now Apple has gone a step further and partnered with pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly and health startup Evidation to determine if data collected by the iPhone and Apple Watch can be used to detect early signs of dementia .

The news appeared today on CNBC and the research article published by Apple and these two companies is entitled: ” Developing real-world measures of cognitive decline from consumer-grade multimodal sensor flows “.

This article details the studies that the pharmacist has been doing over the past few months. Using various consumer-grade smart devices they collected a total of 16 TB of data during the Digital Exploratory Assessment Study, a 12-week study that monitored 31 people with cognitive impairment and 82 without cognitive impairment under normal living conditions.

The study states that the data obtained during the study could be used to differentiate people with early signs of cognitive impairment from those who were healthy .
