According tomedia reports, social isolation measures to stop the spread of the new crown virus has led to the suspension or cancellation of major sporting events around the world. But now, after months of disruption, people are finally entering another phase, where the authorities are considering restarting these events. Recently, La Liga and The Bundesliga have returned. Now, F1 is expected to resume operations in the coming days, and basketball is expected to follow suit.
A memo collected by The Athletic called Life Inside The Bubble on plans and measures the NBA will take to resume the game. Interestingly, in order to enhance social distance, the memo recommends using the Oura ring. If people are within 6 feet of the ring too long, they will be notified.
The advice is a clue from a study published earlier this month that showed that by combining physiological data and in-app surveys, the ring could predict the onset of new coronary pneumonia three days in advance with a 90 percent accuracy rate. In principle, this ring is the same as any health tracker. Tracking heart rate and breathing rates, as well as other variables, and determining the probability score will help with in-depth medical examinations, ESPN senior writer Zach Lowe wrote on Twitter.
While using the Ura ring is a good choice, people are already skeptical about the data generated by the ring. To that end, Lowe reiterated that players and staff have the right to choose how the ring is worn. In addition, team staff will not be able to access any other player’s data except that the probability of illness score will trigger further medical examinations.
