Johnson & Johnson and Apple to Study If Apple Watches Can Reduce Stroke Risk in Seniors

强生公司和苹果公司研究苹果手表是否能降低老年人患中风的风险

强生苹果邀请65岁及以上的老年人参与他们所谓的“里程碑式的临床试验”。他们的心脏线研究将利用Apple Watch的心脏健康监测功能,看看可穿戴设备收集的信息是否有助于检测心房纤颤(AFib)——一种可能导致中风的不规则心律。

强生公司负责医疗事务的副总裁保罗·伯顿博士指出:“对于65岁以上的人来说,AFib可能会导致更多的中风。这种情况更为常见。”Apple Watch的一个特点是,它可以追踪佩戴者的心率,并在心率异常高或异常低时通知佩戴者。手表的主人通常用它们来跟踪他们的日常活动水平,监测他们的锻炼,并记录他们燃烧了多少卡路里。

这些公司最初在去年宣布了他们的研究计划,现在,他们准备开始接受参与者。有兴趣参与这项研究的人需要有一个传统的“按服务收费”的医疗保险计划,以及一部6s或更新的iPhone。这项研究将跟踪参与者至少两年。

根据研究公司Strategy Analytics的数据,2019年Apple Watch的出货量为3100万只,比所有瑞士手表品牌的出货量总和还多,为2100万只。这家科技公司的手表去年的出货量增长了36%,而瑞士手表的出货量下降了13%,这进一步证明了智能手表大受欢迎。

Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) are inviting people 65 and older to participate in what they describe as a "landmark clinical trial." Their Heartline Study will utilize the heart-health monitoring features of the Apple Watch to see if the information the wearable device gathers can be useful in detecting atrial fibrillation (AFib) -- an irregular heart rhythm that can lead to stroke.

As Johnson & Johnson VP of Medical Affairs Dr. Paul Burton notes, "AFib can potentially lead to more strokes for people over the age of 65. Cases are more common." One feature of the Apple Watch is that it tracks the wearer's heart rate and can notify them when it's unusually high or low. Watch owners commonly use them to track their daily activity levels, monitor their workouts, and record how many calories they've burned.

The companies originally announced their plans for this study last year; now, they are ready to start accepting participants. People interested in being part of the study will need to have a traditional fee-for-service Medicare plan as well as an iPhone that is model 6s or newer. The study will track participants for at least two years.

According to research company Strategy Analytics, 31 million Apple Watches shipped in 2019 -- more than all Swiss watch brands shipped combined -- 21 million. In further evidence of the overwhelming popularity of the devices, shipments of the tech company's Watch grew 36% last year, while those of Swiss watches declined by 13%.
