How The iWatch Will Transform HealthCare

How The iWatch Will Transform HealthCare | Sports Ethics: Craig, L | Scoop.it

Apple has been developing and will soon unveil an "iWatch" sometime in 2014. When it does, it will transform the concept and practice of health care.

 

The iWatch will be used by millions to monitor their day-to-day health and improve their lives in countless other ways. Areas like sports medicine and athletic training will benefit as well.


I really don’t think many people realize just how much of a game-changer this will be. The iWatch will not just make measuring your heart rate easier; it will change the way society thinks about health and wellness, much like the way the previous


Apple devices have changed the way we think about technology and its role in our lives. Health will be more of a priority in iOS users’ minds. People will be more mindful of things they may not have pondered much before; how many calories they’ve burned, their resting heart rate and amount of exercise. The integration of biometric data into the iOS ecosystem will do wonders for health care, both in and out of hospitals.


Like the Macintosh, iPod, and iPhone, it will be a watershed moment in the history of technology because it will be the first successful integration of technology and the human body in one device. The current skepticism expressed by some industry pundits over Apple’s seeming inability to innovate will vanish the moment it is unveiled. Apple’s mission is to build products that enrich people’s lives; the iWatch will go a long way to make those lives healthier.

Buena Suerte!

Pablo Nunez's curator insight, November 17, 2013 2:47 PM

Very well written article on the tradition of wishing opponents good luck and the understanding of an underlying respect for sport, each opponents commitment, and good sportsmanship.

Joshua Evans's curator insight, January 17, 2014 11:18 PM

Players need to have more sportsmanship because as much as players get traded, the player you just hurt could be your teammate next year. Respect is a big part of the game.

With all the negative news in the world, it is always great to see that some people really take advantage of their station in life to set an example for our younger generations to follow.

I hope more athletes will be encouraged to take a stand against unethical behavior be it from a staff member or teammate.

Wendy R's curator insight, April 18, 2014 8:42 PM

"Laughable?" a bit derogatory isn't it?  How about something along the lines of, "We are unclear as to where these allegations came from, we don't coach in the manner he described, but we are eager to get to the bottom of this as fast and as civilized as possible." 

Josh Laker's curator insight, May 11, 2014 12:14 PM

Over the past few years the media has reported on coaches abusing players.  This article brings to light allegations of abuse at Washington State University.

Great look at athletes struggling with the fact that they cant always be the best and how coaches have got them through those struggles.

Mike Falvo's curator insight, January 19, 2015 4:47 AM

If someone feels like they're losing their ethical edge, it then comes time to metaphorically step back and reevaluate.
