Once players are inside the “bubble” in Orlando for the season’s return-to-play, they will have the option to wear an Oura smart ring.
The ring is able to track the health of players, including early detection of coronavirus, temperature, respiratory functions and heart rate.
Earlier this month, study results from West Virginia University’s Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute suggested that physiological data from the rings can forecast and predict COVID-19 symptoms three days in advance with 90 percent accuracy.
The rings will notify players if they’re within six feet of others when moving around the Orlando campus.
The ring reportedly won’t be mandatory for players, but those who choose to wear it will be able to sync it with an app to check where their health stands.
