Apple is looking to widen its medical team, as the company has again made a new hire in the field.

The new member of Apple’s medical team is Michael O’Reily, who worked as chief medical officer and executive vice president of medical affairs at Masimo Corporation-a pulse oximeter manufacturing company.

Apple Insider states that at present, O’Reily, an MD, is working as an assistant associate professor in the department of anesthesiology at the University Michigan. He is also working as a professor of anesthesiology at the University of California.

Though Apple hasn’t informed about the role of O’Reily, the health features of the iWatch is likely to be the professor’s main working field in the company.

In the previous, it was speculated that the iWatch will be equipped with the enhanced medical functions, including the pulse measurement feature-the option in which O’Reily has a vast experience.

With the addition of world-class medical specialists and engineers, Apple is expected to bring a revolutionary health feature in its upcoming device.
