COVID Sensor

Wearable sensor to monitor and track COVID-19-like signs and symptoms to develop better care strategies for COVID-19 pandemic

The purpose of the study is to use wearable sensors to gather information on COVID-19 like signs and symptoms. This information will be used to monitor and track changes to signs and symptoms. The sensor will collect acceleration signals from throat/chest, body temperature and heart rate. The sensor data will be wirelessly transferred to HIPAA compliant servers, where the advanced machine learning programs will analyze and summarize the nature, times and duration of cough, body temperature and heart rate.

The study is currently enrolling participants:
• Have had or currently experiencing COVID-19 like signs and symptoms

• Or may be asked to be a control participant.

• Ages 18-95 years
