New menstrual pad doubles as diagnostic screening device
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently. To learn more about BeeLine Reader, an award-winning startup funded by Intel Capital, see BeeLineReader.com.
At Springwise, we have seen a number of advances in techniques for medical testing and monitoring. These have included a 3D body scanner for the home, and a wristband that monitors blood cell count. Now there is a way to use monthly period blood for diagnostics. Startup Qurasense has developed a ‘diagnostic menstrual pad’ called the Q Pad. The Q Pad looks, feels and performs like a regular menstrual pad, but has a strip embedded in it which collects blood samples. These can then be mailed in for diagnostic testing.
