In San Francisco, an experiment has begun with the use of smart Oura Ring rings, which allow you to monitor the main indicators of physical condition, for the early detection of COVID-19.
Rings are issued by more than 2,000 ambulance employees. In addition, the University of California San Francisco Medical Center intends to ask approximately 150,000 Oura Ring users to share their medical data. Researchers hope to develop an algorithm that will detect the earliest signs of the disease.
Recall that Oura Ring can monitor body temperature and heart rate around the clock. It is assumed that, being timely notified of the deviation of these indicators from the norm, the user will be able to apply for diagnostics earlier and, if a disease is detected, receive treatment and isolate himself from contacts with others.
