EarlySense, which is best known for its under-the-mattress health monitor EarlySense Live, unveiled a new product called Percept, touting it as the world's first ever contact-free, clinically-proven ovulation and period tracker.
The nonintrusive device uses an advanced algorithm to detect the body's internal signals so it can provide women with highly accurate information and predictions on ovulation, menstruation, sleep, vital signs and stress levels. Clinically proven in a study with hundreds of cycles tracked, Percept can predict when the user is most fertile with 31 percent higher accuracy than standard ovulation estimation processes used by women worldwide.
What's more, after learning a woman's monthly pattern, the system can predict the exact day of ovulation in over 60 percent of cycles within 1 day, and within 2 days of ovulation in over 75 percent of cycles. Additionally, Percept offers up to a six-day fertility window and precisely highlights the absolute best days to try to get pregnant within that fertility window. And it can also help women better understand and plan their schedules by precisely predicting the day their menses or period will start within 1.3 days on average.
"EarlySense is providing the world's first practically effortless and extremely accurate fertility tracker," Avner Halperin, CEO of EarlySense, said in a statement." With Percept, there is finally no more guesswork or hassle when trying to conceive, only advanced, clinically-proven science helping nature do its miraculous work."
The best part, according to EarlySense, is that using Percept requires little effort and almost no changes to daily habits, meaning no peeing on a stick, wearing a patch or measuring temperatures. The tracker keeps women better informed throughout the conception process and provides peace-of-mind by accurately analyzing the user's relaxation levels and providing precise predictions of the exact day of ovulation and date of their upcoming period. Percept helps women understand their ovulation cycles to increase their chances of getting pregnant effortlessly and in a stress-free way.
The system consists of a small device that is placed under the mattress from where it is connected to the smartphone via the Percept app. Said app allows users to navigate both a Day View and Calendar View of their ovulation and menstrual cycles, while providing them with daily tips to help support the process.
Percept is registered with the U.S. FDA as a medical device to accurately track women's fertility. It is available for $199 from EarlySense's website and at Amazon.
