Toronto, ON -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/02/2014 -- The Menopod™ is a patented electronic cooling device that provides relief for hot flashes.
- It is sleek, convenient and durable
- Can be used repeatedly throughout the day on a single charge
- Provides instant cold by utilizing Peltier technology
Menopod™ can be activated with a simple press of a button. Once activated, the unit will cool to 41 °F (5 °C) in seconds. The unit can then be applied to the back of the neck where the body's thermo receptors are concentrated. Menopod™ is a non-invasive device that can be used by anyone at anytime. It's so safe and quiet that one could fall asleep while using it. It uses a USB connection to recharge. Just like a cell phone, users can recharge their Menopod™ using the provided wall adapter, or any computer or active USB port.
Menopod™ has been awarded the prestigious reddot design award for Medical and Life Sciences in 2014. The award is a validation for all the long hours that have gone into the design and engineering to create a truly unique product.
The production tooling is finished and the company made over 150 working units that are being used for clinical trials and field testing. The first production run of 5000 units has started. Menopod™ is undergoing clinical trials at a Canadian university. Alexander Medical Inc. introduced Menopod™ at the International Menopause Society World Congress in May receiving a fantastic response from medical professionals from all over the world.
The funding goal for this project is $35,000, and this amount will be used by Alexander Medical Inc. to move forward with additional clinical trials in Canada and the USA.
