Valencell has launched BioPack, a pre-packaged biometric sensor system that incorporates Valencell’s PerformTek biometric technology for immediate integration in wrist and arm wearables, as well as other form factors.
Valencell claims that BioPack is the first commercial solution of its kind that delivers the high level of accuracy needed to meet user expectations.
BioPack is a pre-packaged system that speeds up time-to-market and streamlines product development for wearables. With BioPack, customers can shorten product commercialization lifecycles by two to four months, provide cost savings associated with manufacturing set-up and engineering development. BioPack also reduces project risk by eliminating schedule or technical risk related to validating the biometric technology.
Dr. Steven LeBoeuf, president and co-founder of Valencell commented on the product launch. “For those who need accurate consumer solutions for health, performance, or fitness monitoring, our patent-protected BioPack sensor system packs all you need for high accuracy, extremely short product development timelines and continually interesting user experiences.”
BioPack includes Valencell’s patented PerformTek technology, which can extract continuous heart rate, VO(2), calories burned, and more with scientifically-validated accuracy. The BioPack sensor system will also support Valencell’s next-gen biometric roadmap, including breathing rate, cardiac efficiency, heart rate variability and much more.
Valencell designers have determined the right combination of optomechanics, light detector, accelerometer, LEDs and microcontrollers for a scalable design that offers the most effective combination of accuracy, power, size and cost. The interface is a standard flex connector that supports either UART or I2C communications. The optical and electrical assembly is designed for simple integration into customers’ mechanical layout with minimal interference to existing industrial design and production methods.
