Ear buds that can check blood pressure on the way: Valencell

Techstination feature for Thursday, January 9, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       What will be new in digital health this year?    How about ear buds that can monitor your blood pressure.    The technology has been developed by Valencell which is working with other manufacturers to bring it to market.  VP Ryan Kraudel..

“The state of the technology today is such that we have it working at the ear and also at the fingertip. 
Either, or..it doesn’t have to be in both places…just either the fingertip or the ear.   The ear happens to be one of the best places on the body to measure biometrics with this technology.  And so that’s where we have focused our research efforts and our development efforts around this technology.”

How fast it comes to market will in part be determined on FDA approvals that will be needed by device makers.
