We've fielded a wide variety of inquiries from potential partners and consumers. While we don’t sell devices directly to consumers, our partners are targeting retail sales of their own branded audio headsets powered by PerformTek® sensor technology in 2013.
Here’s a list of our most frequently asked questions.
How does Valencell’s technology work?
Valencell’s technology consists of 3 novel elements: 1) sensor module designs, 2) signal extraction technology, and 3) physiological assessments.
For more information, read this blog post by CEO Dr. Steven LeBoeuf on how Valencell’s sensor technology measures real-time body metrics.
What does PerformTek® sensor technology measure?
When integrated into standard audio earbuds, PerformTek enables real-time monitoring of physical performance, fitness, and health status.
We currently offer heart rate, heart rate recovery, VO2 max, calories/energy expenditure, distance, speed, steps taken, workout tracking, workout planning and personalized coaching at this time. The others will be available for licensing at a later date.
