Company:

Cosm Medical is a medical device company building a platform to create Personalized Pelvic Health to improve the lives of women affected by pelvic floor disorder. Pelvic floor disorders, including pelvic organ prolapse, urinary and fecal incontinence, drastically decrease quality of life. These disorders are common (affects 1 in 4 adult women), growing (affects half of all women by 80 years of age) and underserved (stigmatized and traditionally low priority vs other health concerns). The current non-surgical treatment for pelvic organ prolapse is the use of pessaries, which are intravaginal inserts that come in 100+ different sizes and shapes and are fit by trial and error, resulting in a relatively low success rate.  

At Cosm, we are developing Gynethotics™, or made-to-measure gynecological prosthetics, to replace pessaries and manage pelvic organ prolapse, incontinence and reduce the risk of preterm birth.   Our goal is to transform the art of pessary fitting into the data science of Gynethotics™ by using data to combine a novel 3D measurement technology with 3D printing.
