Healium has been named a CES® 2022 Innovation Awards Honoree for its patented technology that connects biometric data from consumer wearables to VR and AR apps
Columbia, Missouri, November 10, 2021 – Healium today announced the Consumer Technology Association, the creators of the world’s largest technology show on the planet, has named Healium a CES® 2022 Innovation Awards Honoree for its patented technology that connects biometric data from consumer wearables to VR and AR apps. This year’s CES Innovation Awards program received a record high number of more than 1800 submissions. The announcement was made ahead of CES 2022, the world’s most influential technology event, happening Jan. 5-8 in Las Vegas, NV and digitally.
The CES Innovation Awards program, owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in 27 consumer technology product categories. An elite panel of industry expert judges, including members of the media, designers, engineers and more, reviewed submissions based on innovation, engineering and functionality, aesthetic and design.
Healium’s products are used worldwide with the US military, in schools, with elite athletes in the NFL and MLB, and wellness practitioners to equip high performers with brain and heart rate training they need to excel. Healium teaches users to learn to self-regulate so they can focus faster, stress less, and perform better.
“Healium is the first immersive media channel for hardware-agnostic wearables,” said Sarah Hill, Healium’s CEO who developed the technology to ease her own anxiety as a former TV news reporter. “Think of Healium like a video game you play with your smartwatch or EEG headband. Mental fitness is an important way to build resilience with drugless, non-harmful coping mechanisms. We’re delighted CES has recognized our technology that is an important bridge between biometric data and XR content.”
You can try Healium for yourself at CES in Vegas at its booth near the entrance to the North Hall’s health pavilion. The CES 2022 Innovation Awards honorees, including product descriptions and photos, can be found at CES.tech/innovation.
