Valencell is focused on helping our customers create the most accurate wearables for all activities and applications, including sports & fitness, personal health, and much more. We’re passionate about enabling people to live healthier lives through biometric wearable technologies. Accuracy in all conditions is at the heart of what we do – anyone, anywhere, doing anything, wearing any device. We are a trailblazer in the field, inventing many of the foundational patents that are moving biometric wearables forward. And we like to have fun doing it.
As a team of scientists – optical, mechanical, electrical engineers, and exercise scientists – we do extensive validation of our technology in our world-class Biometrics Lab.Then we have independent research institutions conduct independent validation. Our technology has been validated by the Duke Center for Living, North Carolina State University, the North Carolina Research Campus and a fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine, among others.
Founded in 2006, Valencell has become the leading innovator in high-performance biometric sensor technology for wearables and hearables. We power more biometrics wearables on the market than any other company in the world. We provide our customers with the most advanced, fully validated biometrics available today, including continuous heart rate, RR interval, cardiac efficiency, V02 max, blood pressure, and more.
We have a long history of innovation in biometric wearables and have a highly-cited patent portfolio in wearable biometrics and PPG. And we’re not stopping – we continue to invent new technology every day with over 100 additional patents pending, which is driving a hardware and software roadmap you can believe in.
In 2018, Valencell partnered with Sonion, the global leader in micro acoustic and micro mechanical technologies and solutions for hearing instruments and specialty earphones, expands the boundaries for the use of biometric sensors in the ear. Through the partnership, Valencell provides the industry’s most advanced biometric sensor modules for hearables and wearables, which Sonion will optimize for size, power consumption and cost for in-ear and on-ear applications. The partnership focuses on designing, developing and manufacturing biometric sensing ear modules for the medical, hearing health, consumer and professional communications markets.
We’ve also raised more than $24 million in venture funding from WSJ Joshua Fund, Best Buy Capital, TDF Ventures, and GII Tech, and secured more than $3 million in grants.
