Apple launches Research app, along with three health studies

The app officially went live yesterday, and early adopters can choose to participate in three studies, one focusing on menstrual cycles and women’s health, another on movement and heart health, and the third on hearing. Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer, said: “Participants on the Research app have the opportunity to make a tremendous impact that could lead to new discoveries and help millions lead healthier lives. The women’s health study will try to increase understanding of the relationship between menstrual cycles and health conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), infertility, osteoporosis and menopausal transition.The app will collect cycle tracking data and use monthly surveys to gauge each user’s individual experiences, and try to gauge the impact of behaviours and habits on reproductive health. It’s being carried out with the help of Harvard University and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS).
