Northwestern researchers develop wearable device to detect early signs of COVID-19

Northwestern University researchers have developed a wearable device that can detect early signs and symptoms of coronavirus. The device, designed to be worn 24/7 on the neck, uses artificial intelligence to detect suspicious coughing and respiratory activity that suggest a patient could have coronavirus. It monitors coughing intensity and patterns, chest wall movements, irregular breathing, respiratory sounds, heart rate and body temperature. Learn more about it here.
