Calling all female modern consumers! Listen up ladies, this one’s for you! As women, we are well accustomed to the routines, aches, pains, and frustrations, that roll around during that lovely “time of the month.” We are also well accustomed to the fact that this little situation of ours will be impacting the lives of women, well forever.
So, with that in mind, I would like to introduce all you tech-savy women to a potential new BFF. Kickstarter, PBC has done it again with the LOONCUP, the world’s first SMART menstrual cup, that’s right I said smart, as in smart phone.
For you ladies that I have already baffled, because you aren’t quite sure what a menstrual cup is, let alone a Smart menstrual cup, allow me to clear things up a bit. A menstrual cup can be used as an alternative solution to tampons or pads. It is a reusable, insertable device that meets certain criteria that tampons simply cannot. LOONCUPs are hypoallergenic, scent free, odorless, toxin free, and latex free, among other features.
Now, that were on the same page, here is how the world’s first SMART menstrual cup can change your life and improve those pesky period situations.
The LOONCUP device comes equipt with Bluetooth hardware that allows the user to connect the cup to the FREE LOONCUP mobile application. Not to worry though, the hardware is well embedded in the product, you won’t even know it’s there. You can download the LOONCUP App from the App Store or Google Play, LOONCUP is also compatible with Apple Watch.
Through the app, the user is able to monitor and analyze their menstrual cycle calendar, menstrual fluid volume, and fluid color, all things that can reveal valuable health information to the user. LOONCUP is also shooting for the moon by giving women everywhere the chance to monitor their own health and well being during their monthly visit. LOONCUP has the ability to give women the answers to their questions, answers that we just can’t seem to find on Google, no matter how hard we try. By the way, an important aspect of women’s health that we seem to over look and fail to appreciate is brought to our attention with the LOONCUP:
A healthy period is a great indicator that things are normal. Normal is good! Finally, that small boost of confidence and relief for us easily stressed out ladies.
Interested? You can expect to pay about $70 total for your LOONCUP. I mean do the math, think about how much we would be saving in the feminine products department!
The makers of LOONCUP are a small team of eight who promises that they talk period all day everyday. Their ultimate goal is to make a difference in the lives of women. We can expect to see the LOONCUP on the market in January 2016. In the future, the makers of LOONCUP hope to cater a variety of cups to meet the specific health needs of women, for example: a LOONCUP that will be able to monitor anemia or glucose levels.
I really couldn’t have said it better myself, from the designers of LOOONCUP themselves, “if we can’t avoid it, let’s face it with a better solution.”
