Technology is awesome. my.Flow, a new startup currently looking for additional funding, is hoping to ease periods for many girls and women around the world. Their idea: A smart tampon that tracks your period with the help of modern technology. It lets its user know when the tampon is completely saturated and needs to be changed. Sounds great? It is!
“Here at my.Flow, we are determined to find a fix that will help you get to know yourself and your flow, empowering women through insight and changing the outdated nature of current menstrual solutions and the general hush surrounding menstruation,” the company tells us. “We have a works-like and looks-like Patent Pending model ready to launch!”
The folks over at my.Flow are developing a tampon monitor that notifies you when your tampon is full and should thus be changed. When the monitor senses full saturation, a notification will be sent to your phone via a Bluetooth-enabled belt clip, so that you never have to risk an accident or, even worse, infection, again. They want to empower anyone experiencing a period with knowledge and confidence about their bodies, with the intention of changing the nature of the topic of the period. Cool.
