TemPredict

Abstract
Currently Enrolling

TemPredict is a research study to observe associations between dermal body temperature, heart rate and related metrics, and 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 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: 

1. Healthcare Employees at Recruitment Sites

  • 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
