Valencell will demonstrate how accurate wearable biometric sensors are redefining traditional views of wearable form factors and use cases across multiple industries, from consumer to medical to industrial, and more

Raleigh, N.C. (Dec. 14, 2017) – Valencell, the leading innovator in performance biometric sensor technology, today announces its plan to debut new software and hardware technology, as well as new use cases in conjunction with its strategic partners at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 (CES 2018). Wearable biometric sensor technology is being integrated within many different types of devices beyond just smartwatches and sports earbuds, including construction hardhats, virtual reality (VR) solutions for pain management in healthcare, and long-haul trucking solutions to combat drowsy driving. The technology and its wide array of use cases will be showcased at Valencell’s CES booth Tuesday, January 9 through Friday, January 12, located in the Sands Expo, Level 2, Halls A-D at the Venetian in booth #43809.

Valencell president and co-founder Steven LeBoeuf, Ph.D. will be speaking at the FitnessTech Summit on a panel called “Data Delivery: Accelerating the Winding Road,” where Dr. LeBoeuf and his co-panelists will discuss how devices are gathering more information than ever, but what are they telling us and how reliable is the output being delivered? Dr. LeBoeuf will also deliver a solo presentation at the FitnessTech Summit on the wearable data ecosystem and how accurate sensor data drives valuable user experiences in numerous industries.

Dr. LeBoeuf will also be speaking at the Wearable Technologies Summit at CES 2018. He will be interviewed in a “fireside chat” titled “The Community of Wearables: From ‘Me’ to ‘We’”. The session will discuss the proliferation of wearable technology beyond just smartwatches and fitness bands.

“While Valencell continues to be the forefront of the wearables and hearables market, we are simultaneously researching and developing innovative use cases for our highly-accurate biometric sensor modules,” said Dr. Steven LeBoeuf, president and co-founder of Valencell. “We’ve met consumer and partner demand for smaller, more power-efficient technology in the wearables and hearables space and we will continue to meet those demands while exploring new areas where our technology can bring value such as medical and industrial cases.”

In addition to the product announcements Valencell will be making during CES in January, Valencell will debut an innovative, original booth layout to showcase key partners and use cases, including Sports & Fitness, Health & Wellness, Medical and Enterprise & Industrial:

  1. Sports & Fitness: This area of the booth will focus on using wearables to improve fitness levels and sports performance. Professional athletes will be onsite working out with a Scosche Rhythm+™ armband, with their data being streamed live to a performance screen. Additionally, Valencell and Firstbeat have partnered to create meaningful user experiences in biometric wearables and hearables and will be demonstrating heart rate, training effect, and recovery, among other metrics.
  2. Medical: Valencell will demonstrate the latest advancements in its PPG-based, cuff-less blood pressure sensing technology. Additionally, Valencell will demonstrate advancements in its R-R interval technology enabling the detection of chronic conditions such as atrial fibrillation and arrhythmia. Valencell will also be demonstrating the use of its technology in combination with VR for pain management applications from Firsthand Technology, which has shown the ability to significantly reduce acute and chronic pain without opioids.
  3. Health & Wellness: Valencell will demonstrate the advancements its newest hardware and software updates have made in sleep monitoring and stress management as they continue their innovation to move the industry beyond the “10k steps” myth to explore more meaningful insights from biometric sensor data.
  4. Enterprise & Industrial: Valencell’s growth into new industries continues as they strategically partner with companies who are seeking to leverage biometric sensor technology to improve safety in the workplace. Valencell and Bodytrak will demonstrate their technology that not only monitors heart rate but real-time core body temperature. Valencell and KOS Technology will partner to demonstrate their collaborative technology that helps detect and alert drowsy drivers in a long-haul trucking setting.

“Firsthand selected Valencell technology in the development of our groundbreaking VR for pain management application because we know the importance of accurate biometric sensor technology when using virtual reality to manage pain,” said Howard Rose, co-founder and CEO of Firsthand Technology. “Valencell’s commitment to applying its biometric sensor technology to new use cases, especially in the medical field, has made for a collaborative partnership with Firsthand that has allowed us to address the national issue of pain management in an innovative way.”

Valencell and its partners will be showcasing their latest technology and use cases at Valencell’s CES booth on Tuesday, January 9 through Friday, January 12 located in Tech West, Sands Expo at the Venetian in booth #43809. For more information on Valencell, please visit
