Onalabs, a start-up aimed at developing medical devices capable of reading, measuring, and monitoring physical and biochemical parameters of the skin through sweat, has announced the closing of a capital increase of €1.8 million. Through this move, the Barça Innovation Hub has joined the shareholders as a new strategic partner. In this way, Onalabs has assured that it will manage to double its valuation compared to last year.
The company has announced that Barça Innovation Hub will contribute its main non-monetary assets and will contribute to the national and international drive of the company. In fact, the entity, whose mission is to encourage and promote innovation in the sports sector, has assured that it is betting on Onalabs to be able to jointly evolve the Onasport device, which will activate the pre-sale campaign during this third quarter.
The firm describes Onasport as “a portable monitoring solution in chest strap format that measures, in real-time and continuously, remotely and non-invasively, lactate level, heart rate, electrolyte loss and dehydration through of sweat.”

Onasport, Onalabs’ portable monitoring solution, will activate the pre-sale campaign during this third quarter
Elisabet del Valle, co-founder and executive director of Onalabs, has assured that “the entry as a partner of Barça Innovation Hub will allow us to create a disruptive alliance to reinforce knowledge and leadership in this area, and represents the beginning of great changes and new paradigms in “training and monitoring of sports health,” according to the director’s words.
Barça Innovation Hub had already participated in two other start-ups before Onalabs: Visualfy, a company that promotes accessibility for deaf and hearing-impaired people; and Oliver, who has created a solution that makes data management accessible in grassroots sports clubs to improve the performance of their athletes.
Onlabas relied on Lanzadera to go on the market in September of last year. The firm, created by Elisabet del Valle and Xavi Muñoz, is focused on the development of three digital devices based on sensory bioengineering: L10, aimed at sports measurements; HAD10, focused on chronic diseases; and a third aimed at monitoring diabetes.
The wearables developed by the company, which are worn on the skin, act as micro-laboratories and aim to translate the language of biochemistry into useful data for both professionals and users. L10 and HAD10 have been validated in centers such as the Germans Trias i Pujol Hospital in Badalona (Barcelona), the High-Performance Sports Center (CAR) in Sant Cugat, and the National Institute of Physical Education of Catalonia (Inefc).
