Archived: LOONCUP – The world’s first SMART menstrual cup.Take back your freedom with the world’s first SMART menstrual cup. Measure, Analyze, and Track. Help us redefine menstruation.

iCrowdNewswire - Oct 7, 2015

It’s no secret: menstruation is not fun. But what if we could relieve the monthly stress and take back our freedom? What if we could learn something important about our periods that makes life better? Sounds good, right?

Actually, a healthy period means our body is doing what it’s supposed to. It can even give us valuable health info, and with a LOONCUP, we can take advantage of that. Think of it as your monthly period partner, a good friend who drops by when you need her, helping you feel better yourself, and making sure you take care of your body during this special time. 

We know, it’s strange to call your period a special time but isn’t it about time we redefine what menstruation is all about? A LOONCUP can do so much more than a tampon, pad, or even a regular menstrual cup. It’s the world’s first smart menstruation cup, and you’ll love the way it tells you how full it is, and when it’s time to refresh. LOONCUP can even track your fluid volume, and tell you about your fluid color and cycle. Try finding a tampon, pad, or cup that can do all that!

We believe that each tiny LOONCUP can make a huge impact on the lives of women around the world, and we need your help. LOONCUP is safe, convenient and so smart, with a securely embedded sensor that talks to your smartphone. We continue to test and enhance the LOONCUP, and with your support, we can do it, helping women worldwide to win back their freedom and live happier, more enjoyable lives. Are you in?

  LOONCUP is with you 24/7, with all the info you need to know.

The LOONCUP is easy and practical, and you can download it in moments from the Apple App Store or Google Play.* After a simple signup and log-in, your LOONCUP automatically pairs with your app, and is ready to give your menstrual cycle information in real-time and at a glance, both current and past. As the cup fills, it gives you gentle alarms about the fluid level. When it reaches 50%, the alarm interval shortens. At 70%, it nudges you more frequently, so you’ll always be prepared. 

*Free on both, available in January 2016

You probably have a few questions, like whether it is safe to put the LOONCUP inside your body. And, what does it mean to have a sensor embedded in there?

Did you know that the menstrual cup has been around for almost a hundred years? They are low-cost, easy-to-use, and safe. So how could we make it better? We found the answer with a dash of modern technology, adding a sensor, a battery, and an antenna, and pairing it with a smartphone app. This gives women access to a lot of very important information about their bodies, not to mention the freedom of knowing when to refresh it. But you know what? It still has all the same great qualities that have made menstrual cups so valued by women around the world for all these years: easy to put in and take out, easy to clean, economical, and comfortable. Best of all, it’s ready to set you free from the world of tampons and pads.

We are a group of thoughtful people who want to make a difference in women’s lives. We want to change how women think about their periods. It’s true that it’s no fun, but remember this: a healthy period is also a great sign that everything is normal. We want women to free themselves and get the information they need to lead healthier, more active lives. You can’t avoid your period, so let’s make it better together! 

Sorry, we got off track. Who are we…. Let’s see, we are 5 women and 3 men working on this mission together. We are serial entrepreneurs, PhDs in biomedical engineering, product designers, app makers, and marketers. Call us a bit geeky if you want but our little group of 8 talks about menstruation 24/7, and we’re going to keep doing what we’re doing to make sure the LOONCUP is the best there is so we can achieve our goal: making a difference in the lives of women around the world. We would love to have you join us.

Please support the development of the LOONCUP with your pledge today. 

LOONCUP is just one of the many creative, interesting and (we hope!) life-changing items on our drawing board. We’re thinking deeply about how we can make an impact on the lives of women around the world, and your support can go a long way to helping us bring our dreams to life. 

Of course, every women is unique, and we are working on several different types of LOONCUPS that can meet different needs that we see. For example, we’ll be able to check anemia with hemoglobin. We’ll also be able to do glucose checks for people suffering from diabetes, and cholesterol for people suffering from hyperpiesia. It’s amazing, isn’t it? All those things that menstrual fluid can tell us. By pledging today, you can help us turn a monthly negative into an incredible lifetime positive. From now on, let’s make every month count today.
