Biometric sensor tech company Valencell has opened a new, state of the art sports performance lab within its Raleigh headquarters. The new facility has been built to meet the growing demand from existing and new licensee partners looking to develop and validate biometric wearable products that offer the most accurate assessment of aerobic fitness levels.
The lab has doubled in size, with 800 square feet of indoor space with additional access to a running track, and over 100 miles of greenways for outdoor exercises. The facility is equipped to measure, test and evaluate a number of biometric data points, including metabolic performance, cardiovascular health, strength, speed, agility and power.
Valencell has also established strategic collaborations with sports performance labs located at Duke University’s Center for Living, North Carolina Research Campus (NCRC), and Campbell University.New facility aside, Valencell has also established strategic collaborations with sports performance labs located at Duke University’s Center for Living, North Carolina Research Campus (NCRC), and Campbell University. This in turn will provide additional resources for Valencell license partners to measure the reliability, performance and accuracy of wearable products powered by PerformTek biometrics. Moreover, the partner laboratories will work with Valencell’s Biometrics Lab on further research and development with additional metrics and wearable applications, such as gaming, military, and first responder.
Valencell licenses its technology to such companies as Intel, LG and Jabra. As part of the deal, these vendors get to access to the testing facilities and the world’s largest R&D-focused team that is exclusively focused on extracting accurate photoplehtymography (PPG) measurements for measuring heart rate variability.
