Biogen is a medical company specializing in research in the field of neurology and psychiatry. Today, it announced that it is establishing a partnership with Apple, under which its watches will be used in future research.
Biogen wants to develop a method to use Apple Watch to recognize the first signs of cognitive decline in adults. In their opinion, these devices could help solve the problem of late diagnosis of patients suffering from dementia and other related diseases. According to studies, they affect from 15 to 20% of people over 65, but they often remain untreated for too long, because their first symptoms are usually difficult to notice.
According to George Vradenburg of UsAgainstAlzheimer’s, Apple Watch has the potential to help many people suffering from cognitive decline in the future in a similar way to how it now helps patients with heart disease. In both of these cases, early diagnosis greatly facilitates further treatment.
