What is a prototype?

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.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Your perfect pelvic floor trainer

Perifit solves a problem most women don’t like to admit they have. Whether it's caused by having had a baby or just simply getting older, one in three women have pelvic floor weakness and problems with incontinence.

Although Kegel exercises are recommended by doctors for everything for getting back in shape after having a baby to preventing UTIs or recovering from bladder or kidney infections, most women don’t know exactly how, or even how often, to do them. In other words, Kegels don't work for most. And despite the proliferation of available products, wearing panty liners or pads aren't the answer most women want—especially if you prefer to lead an active life, free of worry.

Perifit S offers you the solution you've been seeking. Fun, safe, and easy-to-use, it lets you train your pelvic floor muscles, improve your core strength, renew your confidence, and add a little extra something 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.
  • Bladder control: they control the bladder and can prevent incontinence caused by stress, post-partum effects, aging, or other factors. Over 76% of women experience incontinence issues at some point in their life - strong pelvic floor muscles can prevent or resolve many of these problems without the complications of surgery.
  • 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 measures 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 having a personal pelvic floor gym and tracking system by your side whenever you want.

 

There is one training program that is made specifically for you

You can choose one of five training programs specifically designed to cover each type of pelvic floor condition. We worked with world-class physiotherapists, who have written books on pelvic floor exercise and training, to ensure you'll receive the best coaching for your pelvic rehabilitation. Here are the five training programs:

 

Game on!

Our experts have designed unique games to give your pelvic floor a full workout. It has never been as motivating and efficient to train your pelvic floor.

Track your performance

Get motivated by tracking your results on the dashboard. Improve week by week and beat your personal best!


1. Step-by-step guidance for a great start​

Our app will gently guide you through your first steps of training. You get a clear and simple explanation for every exercise you do and lots of advice for a perfect workout.


2. Place Perifit inside and play

Forget about those boring and repetitive workouts you had to do before Perifit. Our exercises are a series of fun smartphone games you play by using your pelvic floor muscles. Every level is carefully designed by world-class pelvic floor disorder specialists.

 3. Track your progress

Our proprietary, unique data mining algorithms assess your individual pelvic floor performance against four key metrics—force, endurance, reflex, and agility. This enables your virtual coach to custom design a personal set of exercises for faster improvement.

 

 

 

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.
