In line with its strategy to buy several small acquisitions of start-ups, Apple’s latest haul is Tueo Health, a small start-up committed to developing a system of helping parents monitor asthma symptoms in sleeping children. It is likely that in late 2018 Apple concluded its acquisition of the said company for an undisclosed investment. In 2017, the start-up raised a modest $1.1 million in funding.
Tueo Health’s mobile app works with commercial breathing sensors to help manage asthma symptoms in children while they are sleeping. The app would send signals to their parents if their child’s breathing has changed during the night.
Over the last few years, Apple has been adding health technologies to its portfolio. The latest version of the Apple Watch can perform an electrocardiogram and detect when the user falls.
It is also anticipated that as part of its iOS update, the Health app for iPhones will be able to track menstrual cycles. The company is scheduled to announce its new operating system’s features at the annual developer’s conference in June.
So far, Apple has made only two other health acquisitions. In 2016 it bought the start-up Gliimpse that is capable of aggregating medical records and Beddit in 2017 which makes sleep sensors.
