NBA Players to Wear Oura Smart Rings at Disney World Complex

The NBA has been trying to pull out all the stops in terms of keeping players, coaches and team personnel healthy once the league returns to play.

From masks, to social distancing guidelines, to aggressive coronavirus testing, the NBA is placing safety at the forefront.

Earlier in the month, West Virginia University’s Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute developed a wearable device in the form of a ring which can “forecast and predict the onset of COVID-19 related symptoms three days in advance with 90 percent accuracy.” The ring is able to measure a person’s body temperature, respiratory functions, as well as heart rate. This product, coined the Oura Smart Ring will be worn by all players at Disney World.

These titanium Oura rings are water resistant and only weigh from four to six grams. They are powered by a battery that can maintain its charge for up to seven days. The product is required to be warn 24/7 and is able to store up to six weeks of data that can be stored on any computer or smart phone via Bluetooth Low Energy.

The NBA is truly changing the game with an eye out for safety.
