NBA restart plan includes using Oura rings to detect COVID-19 symptoms


As the NBA continues to strive to restart its season with lone players and other staff at Walt Disney World in Orlando, details of how it hopes to manage people on the site are leaked. According to Shams Charania’s The Athletic, the details were outlined in an information note titled “Life in the Bubble,” which described test plans, quarantine protocols, and more.

The part that specifically interests us – apart from the players only has lounges with NBA 2K and bracelets that beep if people are within two meters of each other for too long – is its proposed use of the rings of Oura. Earlier this month, results from a study by the Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute at West Virginia University suggested that physiological data from the rings, combined in its digital platform with information obtained from wearers via surveys integrated with application, can “predict and predict the onset of symptoms related to COVID-19” Three days in advance, with 90% accuracy.
