Mumbai Indians ((MI), being the most successful team of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is already going one step ahead when it comes to wearing security measures with restricted protocols for staying healthy and away from the COVID-19.
The side has induced the smart-ring associated with the National Basketball Association (NBA) earlier that will help to analyze even the smallest threats. The blood pressure, heartbeat, and the movements can be judged easily of a player.
Mumbai Indians induce NBA’s smart-ring to detect COVID-19 threat
“The ring picks up a person’s vital data — heart rate, heart rate variation, respiratory rate and body temperature among other details — and then flags any irregular trend in advance so that the asymptomatic signals can be spotted at the earliest and dealt with,” a source was quoted as saying in The Times of India (TOI).
“The ring monitors the person’s pulse, movements and temperature to present a complete picture, so that helps in the daily analysis. (National Basketball Association) has made use of the similar ring health device,” the source added.
To be clearly noted, MI are following better protocols than others as according to a player, it is harder even to analyze another as everyone is assured to wear full masks, gloves, in fact, they are totally covered from head to toe.
“We were all covered head to toe, with PPE, mask, face shield and even three pairs of gloves. It was absolutely difficult to recognise the person next to you. Quite an experience, but we realised how necessary it was for our own safety. We have families here and there can’t be a safer place than the Mumbai Indians camp,” a player said.
