During this week's special event, Apple introduced CareKit. Apple noted that "Doctors around the world are using iPhone to transform the way we think about health. Apps created with ResearchKit are already producing medical insights and discoveries at a pace and scale never seen before. That success has inspired us to widen the scope from medical research to personal care with the introduction of CareKit — a framework for developers to build apps that let you manage your own well-being on a daily basis. After Monday's event, the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office published two separate Apple trademark filings for "CareKit," followed by a more extensive filing with Europe's EUIPO that further extended Apple's coverage to include areas of education, wellness sensors and monitoring.
