The number of women in menopause would be over 1.1B soon with all baby boom generation joined. The awareness of women health calls for more active and efficient menopause management. Menopause symptoms, caused by the decreasing female hormone, affect women with their daily jobs and assignments. Surgical menopause (surgical removal of ovaries) women have more seriously negative impact on quality of life. Mismanagement of early symptoms could lead to threat of some lethal chronic diseases later. With regular medical treatment and doctor visits, an efficient tool empowering active and simple management is a must-have. Not only surgical menopause women, many natural menopause women face similar issues as well. Founder of Fit4meno, Dr. Li a menopause woman herself, plays around with Apps and blogs available but found no real help. The pain is unmet medical need is real but nothing to fit the need. Thus, she decides to work on something to serve the need. Her basic concept is to detect onsets of the top 3 symptoms: hot flash, night sweat and sleeping troubles. The preliminary algorithm indicates good feasibility. Fit4meno is trying to develop algorithms for menopause symptom detection with accuracy. The device Fit4meno System is a sensor pad (powered by rechargeable battery, cordless and contact free) sitting under pillow and wireless connected to a mobile APP.
The medical device Fit4menoPRO targets surgical menopause women. They are exposed to high risk of lethal threat as sleep apnea, insomnia, cardiovascular diseases, dementia, cancer…etc. Thus, they have the highest incentive for menopause management and preventive medicine program. Fit4meno plans to conduct clinical study with them to show its medical benefit. In our development plan, Fit4menoPRO should be a medical device prescribed by doctors and cost covered by insurance program because it’s designed for personalized and preventive medicine to reduce total cost. The consumer product Fit4menoEZ should be launched based on the market success of Fit4menoPRO. It targets general menopause women as consumer device for user subscription. The goal is to accelerate the all over interacting flow among patients, physicians and therapy specialists to reduce inefficiency and increase quality of medical services
