Wearables Help Detect Dementia

A blend of consumer devices and mobile apps could help detect early signs of dementia, according to results of a new study. The study, by Eli Lilly & Co., Apple, and Evidation Health, showed that remote patient monitoring via iPhone, Apple Watch, and Apple-acquired sleep monitoring device Beddit, may help in the identification of mild cognitive impairment and mild Alzheimer's disease  and dementia. “Apple represents mass adoption,” says Anthony Brooke, VP of strategy for product, partnerships and data analytics at GetWellNetwork, a digital consumer health tech company based in Bethesda, Maryland. “They are never the bellwether for bleeding edge technology that simply works, rather they are the bellwether of mass adoption. It continues to be fascinating to me that we are seeing real innovation originating from nontraditional healthcare companies.”
