Made for women.
Backed by science.

We prioritize women’s health and apply the most rigorous scientific standards to support your health across your lifetime. 

The heart of the MedRing is an electromechanical system equipped with biosensors, which ensures regulated delivery of your medication and immediate registration of your temperature in the app.

The MedRing as a Platform:
The basics

drug delivery

The vaginal mucosa has proven to be an excellent place for drug uptake and diagnostics. Unlike the gastro-intestinal tract, the vagina enables direct uptake, reducing negative side effects for many women. Drug compounds with a low bioavailability or high first-pass effect in chronic diseases are well suited for this route of drug delivery.

The device has a temperature sensor to confirm delivery of the drug, but it can also be equipped with sensors that monitor other kinds of biometric data (like glucose levels or ovulation). Research has found that the MedRing can detect various chemical compounds and hormones with a high accuracy. 

Intelligent diagnostics

Combination of drug delivery + diagnostics

The MedRing is simultaneously able to deliver medications and record biometric data using sensors, which heightens the potential of personalized treatment. 

The platform can capture drug and diagnostic data and leverage the data to provide unprecedented insights and deliver more personalized patient care. 

Supported by data

Ideally located in the vagina

The vaginal mucosa has proven to be an excellent place for drug uptake and diagnostics due to the dense vascularization. Watch the microcirculation flowing in an area of 1 mmjust below the surface of the vaginal wall.
