Due to Heartbeat Sensor, Apple Facing Lawsuits

Sumber: Apple Watch Series 4
More unpleasant news came from Apple yesterday (4/9) is reportedly facing a lawsuit from Omni MedSci, a company that alleges that Apple has infringed their proprietary technology patents. The patent referred to the heartbeat sensor presented at Apple Watch.

Omni MedSci claims that they have been meeting with Apple from 2014 to 2016, but unilaterally Apple finally ended negotiations and talks for a partnership with Omni MedSci. Secretly Apple apparently "steals the patent" and uses it at his clever hours. Do not accept that, Omni MedSci filed a lawsuit to the district court of Eastern Texas, USA.

Apple first introduced Apple Watch in 2015. From marketed, Apple Watch has featured a built-in heartbeat sensor. User heart rate sensing is a key feature of Apple Watch devices. A recent study shows that the features of the heart-rate scanner at Apple Watch can be used to detect many health problems such as atrial fibrillation, early signs of diabetes, hypertension, and much more.

Omni MedSci, the company that sued Apple, is owned by Mohammed Islam, which in 2015 is described by the Detroit news website as a professional figure patenting more than 150 patents and controlling 6 companies. Mohammed Islam has expertise in optical technology and he seems to have several patents related to the technology. One of his patent-owning companies, Cheetah Omni, has filed a patent-related lawsuit against giant companies such as Fujitsu, Alcatel-Lucent, Huawei, Nokia and Siemens.

In 2015, Mohammed Islam said that Omni MedSci developed a monitoring technology for glucose levels applied to clothing. This technology utilizes lasers to monitor blood sugar levels. At that time, Omni MedSci then held a meeting with Apple about the technology.
