A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
About this project
PERIFIT S IS THE #1 PELVIC FLOOR TRAINER
Perifit S solves a problem that more than 1 billon women might have: bladder leaks or incontinence due to pelvic floor weakness. It affects one in three women worldwide and can cause even greater problems. Pelvic floor weakness can lead to surgery for organ prolapse, cause intimacy issues for couples, and affect your sexual well-being.
Although Kegel exercises are recommended by doctors, they don't typically work for most women. Perifit S offers you the perfect solution, a way to strengthen your pelvic floor faster and permanently. Fun, safe, and easy-to-use, it lets you train your pelvic floor muscles, improves your core strength, helps prevent UT infections, and adds a little something extra to your sexual enjoyment.
Strong pelvic floor muscles are a vital part of a healthy body. They’re particularly crucial within the following contexts:
Pregnancy: they are critically important both during and after pregnancy by helping the body manage changes arising from the pregnancy and aiding in a quick post-partum recovery.
Musculoskeletal stability: they support abdominal organs and provide stability for the entire pelvic region and lower spine; when weak or unstable they can cause back and pelvic pain.
Pleasure: they are an important part of a healthy sexual response for women. Strong pelvic floor muscles can enhance arousal and improve sensation, orgasm quality, and general sexual experience.
However, despite the importance of pelvic floor muscles, tools to help exercise and manage them are extremely lacking. That’s where Perifit comes in ...
Perifit S is a pelvic floor sensor, wirelessly connected to your smartphone, that’s designed to help you tone your pelvic floor muscles. It detects the force exerted when you squeeze your pelvic floor muscles and communicates that information back to you via your smartphone. Using the device and corresponding app is like putting a personal pelvic floor gym, coach, and tracking system at your fingertips. It’s available anytime.
Perifit S is a video game controlled by your pelvic floor muscles. Working with women's health experts, we’ve designed a series of unique games to give you the ultimate pelvic floor workout. It’s never been as motivating, fun, or efficient to train your pelvic muscles.
Each level of the game is comprised of exercises and training programs designed by world-class women's health specialists. They target improving specific fiber groups within your pelvic floor muscles, making your workout highly efficient and customized to your individual needs.
PERIFIT S TRACKS YOUR PROGRESS TO OPTIMIZE YOUR PERFORMANCE AND BOOST YOUR MOTIVATION
We teamed up with world class experts to design Perifit S. Your sensor is only 0.8 inches wide. It fits all body types and sizes, and reports your specific lift strength with exceptional accuracy. After each use, you can simply wash it with soap and water.
To get a truly efficient pelvic floor workout, you need to target both your superficial (shallow) and deep pelvic layers. Perifit S is the only pelvic floor trainer which allows you to train and track both these layers to get the best results.
Sensor #1 measures vertical contractions in the superficial (shallow) pelvic floor zone and Sensor #2 measures horizontal contractions in the deep pelvic floor zone.
The pearly white part on the bottom of Perifit S enhances the design and your comfort while holding it. It also makes it much more eco-friendly, as now it can be repaired and the battery replaced.
Perifit S is also available in four different colors::

Risks and challenges
Perifit is a medical device and needs to undergo a lot of LAB tests to obtain FDA and CE Medical Device certification. This testing can be complicated and very time-consuming. Therefore, we have been working very hard with physiotherapists and gynecologists to ensure Perifit is a top-quality medical device. We’ve made certain Perifit is only built with high-grade, medical-rated materials. And, we’ve hired Medical Device certification experts to ensure Perifit gets through the certification process smoothly.
Another big challenge is mass production, which can sometimes take ages if not properly handled. That's why, we have already secured all our manufacturers, and even produced and tested our first batch of devices. Since the most complicated aspects of mass production are behind us, there shouldn't be any major problems in completing mass production on schedule.
