Our menstruation has officially become part of digital technology with the menstrual cup Looncup . Because with this app, it is now possible to send information about your period directly to your smartphone. How much blood, what consistency, what color. The menstrual cup gives you information about your state of health.
What is a menstrual cup?
For those who do not even know what a menstrual cup is: a small silicone cup that is inserted into the vagina during the period. There he catches the blood and has to be evacuated and washed out regularly. More and more women are using the menstrual caps as they are more eco-friendly and healthier than tampons and pads that disrupt the pH of the vagina.
How does Looncup work?
Menstrual cups are already available from various manufacturers such as: Ruby Cup, Mooncup or Diva. But with Looncup (belongs to Mooncup) you go one step further. The menstrual cup is equipped with a battery, a sensor and a Bluetooth antenna. Once the blood flows into the cup, information can be retrieved. Best of all, the app sends push messages as soon as the cap is full. All data is stored and can be compared at any time to create a personal period calendar. Currently, the project "Looncup" is funded through the crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Since over $ 100,000 (50,000 was the target) has already been collected, Looncup will be launched in January 2016. Those who still support the campaign and want to secure a looncup with it, are for $ 40 (+ free shipping).
