Raleigh, N.C. and SAN FRANCISCO – August 24, 2016 – Valencell, the leading innovator in performance biometric data sensor technology, announced today that its president and co-founder, Dr. Steven LeBoeuf, will present at the Wearable Tech in Sport Summit 2016, taking place August 24 – 25 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in San Francisco, CA.

LeBoeuf, an internationally recognized expert in biometric sensor technology, will be a panelist for the “Fitness Tech and Wearables Hit the Highway” sports panel session. The panel will focus on innovations in wearables for fitness, including real time download, personal coaching, and analytics, as well as the presence of wearables and technology on the road to better health and fitness. The session will take place Wednesday, August 24 from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

The Wearable Tech in Sport Summit will feature presentations from industry-leaders on groundbreaking insights into wearable technology, digital sport and quantified self. This year’s conference will focus on the theme, “Digital Innovation for a Wearable Future.”

“More consumers than ever before are looking to biometric wearables to monitor their health and fitness, and we know that accuracy and continually interesting and personalized health insights are the two factors that matter most to consumers, and will drive continued growth in this market,” said Dr. Steven LeBoeuf, president and co-founder of Valencell. “Valencell is passionate about leading innovation in wearables in this category, supporting multiple form factors, and providing the consumer wearables market with the most accurate biometric sensor technology needed to drive truly compelling user experiences in fitness and health.”

Valencell’s PerformTek® sensor systems provide accurate, robust and flexible technology, powering more biometric hearables and wearables on the market than any other company. The technology gives hearable devices the ability to continuously and accurately measure blood flow signals, even during extreme physical activity or when the optical signals are weak. These signals can be translated into biometric data, including continuous heart rate, VO2 and VO2 max, resting heart rate, heart rate response, heart rate recovery, continuous energy expenditure (calorie burn), cardiac efficiency and heart rate variability assessments.

The accuracy of Valencell’s PerformTek technology has been independently validated by numerous research institutions, including Duke University, NC State University, and the American College of Sports Medicine.

There are three ways to access Valencell technology and expertise. Valencell licenses its biometric sensor technology to enable customers to create custom-designed biometric wearable devices. Valencell also recently introduced its Benchmark™ sensor system, which incorporates all of Valencell’s PerformTek biometric sensor technology in a pre-packaged system for immediate integration in wearables of all kinds. Companies can also license Valencell’s patents. Valencell has a highly cited patent portfolio in optical biometric sensor technology in the wearables and hearables industry, which includes 35 patents granted and more than 70 additional patents pending.

Valencell’s PerformTek technology is the choice of popular consumer electronics brands, including Sony, LG, Intel/SMS Audio, Jabra, Scosche, Atlas Wearables, Caeden, Kuaiwear, Bioconnected, and iriver among numerous others.
