New Hires Indicating Apple's Endeavor of Adding Medical Technology in its Device Apple has hired two new biomedical engineers

Apple employs two new engineers with a view to strengthening its attempt to include different medical features in its products

Recently, Apple has been found to appoint a couple of new engineers who are experienced in the areas of medical technology, which is giving a strong signal about Apple's plan of adding advanced health features in its devices.

The first person is Nancy Dougherty, who has joined Apple as a hardware engineer. She previously worked at Sano Intelligence, a bionsensor starup company, as a hardware developer. She has an extensive working experience with such a wearable device that is capable to monitor the different characteristics of blood. She has an electrical engineering degree from Stanford.

Apple's second new hire is  Ravi Narasimhan, who worked at Vital Connect-a company which manufactures biosensor. He is experienced in working with such wearable products that can monitor different physiological matters remotely, including tracking the heartbeats and respiration. Similar to Dougherty, he studied electrical engineering at Stanford.

According to Mac Rumors, Apple has been researching on iris scanning technology which can be applied in the sensors of the iPhone. Employing two new experienced engineers will indeed strengthen the company's effort to a great extent.

If Apple is really able to bring the outstanding health technologies to its products, it will be a huge innovation.
