Dr. Steven LeBoeuf, Co-founder & CEO, Valencell (http://www.valencell.com) explains:
PerformTek biometrics gives fitness-conscious consumers the ability to track their fitness level with a device they already use while working out – audio earbuds. While pedometers can help folks keep track of their daily activity, PerformTek sensor technology gives people the ability to understand how daily activity and exercise affects their body. Consumers want insight into their overall health and fitness – not just a metric. Valencell’s PerformTek sensor technology provides continuous heart rate monitoring proven accurate during virtually any exercise in virtually any physical environment or condition. We combine our sensor technology biometrics into a model for assessing a person’s VO2max (aerobic fitness level), and we can help them understand how exercise is improving their fitness. Unlike other fitness monitors that simply provide and sometimes record numbers, PerformTek solutions help make sense of the numbers so a person can improve their physical fitness or performance. This is because we measure vital signs and activity context in the same device.
Validated by multiple independent studies, Valencell’s PerformTek Precision Biometrics is a sensor technology that measures more real-time biometric and physiological data than any other fitness monitor and with a high degree of accuracy and consistency. PerformTek integrates into devices – such as earbuds, armbands, wristbands – and syncs with smartphone apps people are already using while exercising.
PeformTek measures biometrics by analyzing blood flow and physical activity level from a miniature optomechanicalsensor module to capture accurate, meaningful and actionable fitness data, such as heart rate, aerobic fitness (VO2 max) as well as speed, pace, cadence, distance and calories burned. The information is wirelessly delivered real-time to a mobile app on your smartphone.
PerformTek sensor technology within earbuds makes it ideal for use in fitness training and athletic performance coaching. This is perfect for someone who’s been working out and wants to take their fitness to the next level – maybe run their first half marathon. Not only can we tell how fast, long, and often they are training, but also how well their body is adapting to the training.
PerformTek helps makes the time spent exercising more efficient and helps people reacg their personal goals.
