TemPredict

Currently Enrolling

TemPredict is a research study to observe associations between dermal body temperature, heart rate, and related metrics, and the onset of symptoms such as fever, cough, and fatigue, which can characterize COVID-19.

The purpose of this study is to collect information from a wearable sensor that may allow researchers to develop an algorithm that can predict the onset of symptoms such as fever, cough, and fatigue, which can characterize COVID-19.​

The study uses an Oura Ring which is a wearable device that measures heart rate, inter-beat interval and changes in dermal temperature and is associated with a smartphone app.

Who is qualified for the study?

Two groups of people are qualified to participate:

UCSF or ZSFGH Healthcare Employees

  • Any UCSF or ZSFGH employee who works in a healthcare environment with potential contact with patients seeking treatment for symptoms such as fever, cough, and fatigue, which can characterize COVID-19

  • May or may not own an Oura Ring

Adult Volunteers

  • Must personally own an Oura Ring

What does participation involve?

UCSF or ZSFGH Healthcare Employees

  • Downloading the Oura Ring App on your smartphone

  • Completing a Screening and Baseline Survey online

  • Receiving an Oura Ring shipped to you via Fedex 

  • Wearing an Oura ring for 3 months

  • Completing daily surveys indicating whether you are experiencing any symptoms that characterize COVID-19, such as fever, cough, fatigue, or other symptoms

  • Sharing data collected by the Oura Ring App (including temperature, heart rate, respiratory rate, sleep, and activity) with Oura, Inc.

  • Returning the Oura Ring via Fedex in a pre-paid, study-supplied shipping package

Adult Volunteers who personally own an Oura Ring

  • Completing a Screening and Baseline Survey online

  • Wearing an Oura ring for 3 months

  • Completing daily surveys indicating whether you are experiencing any illness symptoms

  • Sharing data collected by the Oura Ring App (including temperature, heart rate, respiratory rate, sleep, and activity) with Oura, Inc.

All procedures will be done over the internet and by mail.
