The Second Most Exciting Method to Help You Get Pregnant
Let's face it, the technology around conception isn't very stimulating.
Posted Oct 03, 2017
Are you trying to get pregnant? Science is here to help.
But sometimes, science, like a cold and impersonal exam room, can leave you and your partner less-than-inspired. The tools of the fertility trade—thermometers, ovulation detectors, grids, and graphs—certainly offer science, but also offer a level of intrusion that can be counter-productive. Further, information served up as time-sensitive imperatives can drive anxiety and frustration.
One of the central promises of advances in technology and health is the shift from active data acquisition and engagement to a more passive style. Technology essentially disappears and lets you live life on your terms. And that can mean anything from exercise to making a baby. Essentially, this is the promise of digital health. Existing technologies and methods rely on "human technology" to engage and track. And often times, it's the human component that fails.
Available today, a new approach to fertility is quietly finding its way into the bedroom. Percept, by EarlySense is a sophisticated sensing device that is placed under your mattress and tracks heart rate and breathing to identify ovulation and the optimal window for conception. It]s high science meets optimal convenience. It's uncertain if Percept's more passive data acquisition will be met with consumer approval. In some instances, clinicians and consumers look to have more active engagement to validate a clinical endpoint. Nevertheless, placing a simple sensor under your mattress and following information on your smartphone carries the stamp of logic. From big data to continuous data monitoring, this digital advance is another example of how science is extending into the hand of the consumer.
- Percept’s multi-parameter and advanced AI algorithm analysis detects the body's internal signals, providing an accurate prediction and detection of ovulation as well as prediction of menses.
- Percept predicts when a woman is most fertile with 31 percent higher accuracy than standard ovulation estimation processes, and predicts the exact day of ovulation in over 60 percent of cycles within one day, and within two days of ovulation in over 75 percent of cycles.
- While temperature taking or urine tests provide one data reading, Percept functions during sleep when the body is perfectly at rest, gathering over 50,000 readings over the course of the night.
Today, we live in a world where technology empowers the consumer. EarlySense puts that powerful data into the palm of your hand without obtrusive sensors. It lets you listen to your body—and what you will hear can be pure magic!
