Since its acquisition of Beddit in 2017, Apple has been exploring ways to leverage smart mattress technology, combined with temperature sensors, to monitor various aspects of health, including menstrual cycles.
Initially focused on enhancing sleep tracking, Apple has continued its research to incorporate sensors into bedding, making them less intrusive for users. One of the recently granted patents is titled “Flexible temperature sensing devices for body temperature sensing.”
This patent revolves around the use of sensors to monitor a person’s body temperature while they sleep. Apple believes that this approach could offer advantages over existing health tracking methods. According to the patent, “Physiological sensors, such as temperature measurement devices, heart monitoring devices, or blood oxygen level sensors,” are being integrated into various wearables and objects such as smartwatches, clothing, and even furniture.Continue reading… “Apple’s Innovative Use of Smart Mattress Technology for Health Tracking”
