Tim Cook Trial of Apple Blood Sugar Detector Tool

Tim Cook
Apple CEO Tim Cook is reportedly testing a blood sugar measurement sensor that Apple is developing. According to reports, during the trial of this sensor immersed in Apple Watch.

Quoted from CNBC, an anonymous source called Cook has been trying this device since a few months ago. He also briefly mentioned the presence of this device while visiting the University of Glasgow, when he received honoris causa title.

However, not yet certain when Apple plans to release this product to the public. But almost certainly technological innovation offered by Apple is a breakthrough in the field of health.

One of the things that concerns is the ability of a device that allows measuring blood sugar levels without injuring the skin. As is known, the current blood sugar gauge still rely on sensors required to penetrate the skin.

For information, reports about the presence of this sensor has been heard since last month. Apple is rumored to have set up a team of biomechanical engineers to develop the sensor in an office in Palo Alto.

The engineers have been researching the sensor for five years. In fact, Apple has conducted a feasibility test at a clinical site in the Bay Area. The company also employs a number of consultants who help provide direction on complex health regulations.

Reportedly, this team is led by Senior Vice President of Apple Hardware Technology Johny Srouji. There are at least 30 people working on the team, including biomedical experts employed by Apple from companies such as Masimo Corp., Sano, Medtronic, and C8 Medisensors.
