Valencell, Inc., is a finalist in the 2009 Consumer Electronics Showcase i-Stage competition.
Valencell will be showcasing its Healthset® technology which measures heart rate, metabolic rate (calories burned) and aerobic fitness, through audio earbuds, such as wireless mobile phone headsets, to provide more seamless ways to track fitness and performance. Users simply put on the Healthset® enabled wireless headset, go about their daily routine, makes calls, enjoy music, exercise or train for a run while Healthset® technologies track heart rate, distance traveled, calories burned and VO2max (aka aerobic fitness). Data is sent wirelessly to devices, such as mobile phones, and websites, where fitness assessments are enjoyed.
Consumer Electronic Showcase is the most prominent consumer electronics event in the world. Each year, January in Las Vegas is a hotbed for major powerhouses and promising companies to showcase the hottest consumer electronic offerings.
