inSpire / Smart Menstrual Cup


inSpire is a smart performance menstrual cup built as a solution to the massive amount of waste generated because of non-biodegradable feminine hygiene waste. inSpire comes with a spiral shape that allows for easy insertion and removal, an inbuilt capacitive touch sensor to measure the fluid volume and notify women when their cups are getting full, a pH sensor to measure the menstrual health and a health app to track the flow and provide smart analytics for female health. We also offer a portable sterilizer which acts as a wireless charger for the cup and cleans it within minutes through UV technology.
