Wearable device works to either help or prevent conception

VivoSensMedical GmbH wants to improve diagnostics and set new standards in gynecological, reproductive and sexual medicine. The startup from Saxony is exhibiting the OvulaRing, its inaugural digital healthcare innovation, at CeBIT 2016 in Hannover. The OvulaRing is an intravaginal biosensor that identifies the fertile days in a woman’s cycle, which is useful for medical diagnostics of the menstrual cycle, in aiding conception or as a natural, hormone-free form of contraception. The OvulaRing was developed with the aid of an EXIST entrepreneurial grant from the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology.

The small device uses an app and mobile software based on medical algorithms to continuously analyze core body temperature measurements in order to track a woman’s complete menstrual cycle and simply and precisely identify her most fertile days – an absolute first. This places OvulaRing at the interface between patients and doctors when it comes to self-tracking and telemedical personalized treatment.
