A health study conducted by
Our scientists recently discovered that changes to your normal sleep, activity level or resting heart rate can be an early indicator that you’re coming down with a virus like the flu or COVID-19. That means your wearable device (for example, a Fitbit, Apple Watch, or Garmin) might be able to tell if you’re getting sick before you even develop symptoms.
We’ve published promising early results Opens in a new tab in a top medical journal. And DETECT has been featured in PeopleOpens in a new tab, the Washington Post Opens in a new tab, and on ESPN Opens in a new tab.
Make a difference. When you join the DETECT health study and confidentially share your information with our scientists, you’ll learn more about your own health, and help us develop new ways to tackle COVID-19.
It’s private and secure. Your name and other private/sensitive information are removed before scientists analyze your information, which is never shared with anyone else. DETECT is a project of Scripps Research, a leading non-profit academic institution and a pioneer in digital health research.
Just download the MyDataHelps™ app for Apple or Android. If you don’t have a smartwatch or fitness tracker, we might be able to provide one.
