Pre-production small-scale build complete!

Hi backers! It's been a busy few weeks and we wanted to give you another update. 

We are happy to let you know that we just completed the pre-production engineering build at our factory and it went great! This was the first time we were able to test out the parts from our new high volume molds and other production tooling, as well as the fixtures and assembly processes, and everything came together pretty smoothly. As the picture above shows, we were able to build a handful of units and have used these for continued life-cycle testing as well as a new round of user testing to make final adjustments. We are making a few refinements to various parts over the next few weeks and will undertake a pilot build (where we begin to ramp up to higher volumes) in November. The big picture is that we are still on schedule to ship kGoal to you in December.

We also thought now would be a great time to share with you the progression of kGoal - the picture below distills many months of hard work into a few milestones, from the early stages of concept generation to where we are today with pre-production samples.

 As always, we love to hear from you so please let us know if you have questions or feedback. We hope you're all having a wonderful autumn and can't wait to get kGoal into your hands as soon as we can!

- The Minna Life Team

      Love the colour! I like it that we get up-dates.
      There may also be a target market for pharmacists, erotica shops and surely with physiotherapists who train pelvic floor muscles.
      that might be a market in each country .

      Michelle and Renate, thank you so much for the kind words and we are beyond excited to get kGoal out in the world! We definitely share your belief that it will really be able to change things with pelvic floor muscle health.

      Susan, we are going to check in with all backers about 2 weeks before shipping to verify addresses so no worries there - just keep an eye out for an email from Kickstarter in December (and we will pester everyone we don't hear back from the on the first try :)).

      So glad all is going well. Love the color.
      I need to change my mailing address but your email link gave me only a bunch of code. How can I do this?

      I feel the same as the previous poster - it's exciting to be part of this. As far as I am concerned you don't need to send these out in December. Take your time, one or two months won't make a difference.

      Thank you for the continued updates! I'm very excited to be able to even be a small part of this project. It's so important for women's health.
