Cosm is Modernizing Pelvic Health
Pelvic floor disorders, or PFDs, are a common, growing, and underserved women's health issue. One in every four adult women and half of women by age 80 are affected.
PFDs occur when the muscles and connective tissues are weakened or injured. The disorders include pelvic organ prolapse and urinary and/or fecal incontinence which have a significant impact on a person's quality of life.
Today's Solutions are Limited
Current gynecological prosthetics used to support pelvic organs, commonly known as pessaries, date back to 1,800 B.C. They come in different shapes and sizes all fit by trial and error and have not changed in 50+ years. Currently pessary fittings are done by finger measurements and are not customized to a patient's exact needs for their body.
Subjective trial and
error leads to:
fitting failure rate
drop rate within 1 yr
