Sonion’s BiometRIC™ equips RIC-style hearing instruments with real-time, continuous medical-grade monitoring inside the ear canal.
Statistically, hearing aid users tend to be at an increased risk of cardiovascular conditions. The BiometRIC™ is an unobtrusive and highly accurate solution that can help detect illnesses early, resulting in fewer complications and lower medical costs.
3.7 x 4.7 x 11.2 mm
Measures heart rate and heart rate variability (R-R interval). More applications to be added in the future.
Uses Photoplethysmography (PPG) signals and versatile automatic preprocessing to produce robust and highly accurate measurements.
Data remains robust in a wide variety of conditions, from everyday indoor activities to sport exercises.
Advanced algorithms developed by Valencell process incoming data in real-time to continuously monitor vital signs
Designed for fast and easy fitting in hearing instruments. Extremely power-efficient.
In the ear is the best location to measure with PPG: high perfusion, less movement and lack of sunlight
