Apple Sued by NYU Doctor over Patent Claims

Apple Sued by NYU Doctor over Patent Claims

Apple sued by NYU doctor who claims patent on the apple watch’s irregular heartbeat detection tech.

Dr Joseph Wiesel, a New York University cardiologist has reportedly sued Apple for alleged theft of the heart monitoring technology used by Apple in the Apple Watch. Dr Wiesel has filed a case in federal court in Brooklyn.

Dr Wiesel claims that “the Apple Watch infringes his patent for a method to detect an irregular heartbeat". He has reported that back in September 2017, he shared details about the patent with Cupertino-based tech Company. Atrial fibrillation method is used in the Apple Watch to detect irregularities in the heartbeat.

Dr Wiesel has described his invention as the ‘pioneering steps’ in atrial fibrillation detection by monitoring ‘irregular pulse rhythms from a succession of time intervals’. Wiesel was awarded the patent named as a ‘method and apparatus to determine possible atrial fibrillation’ in March 2006.

He says that he was compelled to sue Apple after the company ‘refused to negotiate in good faith to avoid this lawsuit’. Dr Wiesel now wants the court to order to Apple to pay him royalties and restrict Apple from using his invention without his permission.

Apple launched the Apple Watch 5 in India which came with the irregular heartbeat detection feature at a starting price of Rs 40,900 in September this year.
