SWORD Health Unveils Bloom, A Novel Approach to Redefine Women’s Physical Health
Bloom combines clinical-grade, innovative technology with the human guidance of a Pelvic Health Specialist to create the first comprehensive therapy solution to help women dealing with pelvic health conditions in the convenience of their homes.
In the US alone, one in every four women suffer from pelvic health disorders. These conditions include sexual health, bowel or bladder and pelvic pain disorders, which can be present through all stages of a women’s life, including pregnancy, post partum, menopause. Bloom will support with a non-invasive solution to improve the pelvic floor function and to help reduce chronic pain and dysfunction which can decrease the need for painkillers or prematurely recommended invasive options, like surgery.
This new solution is able to address disparities in women's physical health by creating technology that provides a personalized way to assess the needs of every woman. Bloom is currently the only sensor-based digital solution coupled with clinical guidance from experienced Pelvic Health Specialists to provide a service that is truly first of its kind.
“Women’s physical health has been an overlooked problem in healthcare for decades. Right now, one in every four women suffer from pelvic disorders, without being able to access a solution that is both clinically effective and convenient. That’s why we’ve decided to launch Bloom:we believe every woman should be able to have access to the best care and not suffer in silence. After developing the new gold standard of care for back and joint pain, Bloom is our next step towards fulfilling our mission to free two billion people from pain”. said Virgilio Bento, CEO of SWORD Health.
Bloom provides comprehensive premium care for women by matching members with a Pelvic Health Specialist who will guide them through a tailored exercise program based on their needs. Members can easily assess their personalized treatment plans and be guided during exercises by using a pelvic sensor that tracks pressure movements. The Bloom sensor, connected to the mobile app, enables members to engage in therapeutic exercises from the comfort and privacy of their homes while receiving feedback in real-time.
“I’ve suffered many years with pelvic pain and it’s now an honor to build this solution that will help thousands of women across the world. Just like me, many women simply don’t know there are solutions that can help free them from pain. We are here to support the female population with effective and non-invasive solutions to improve their quality of life,” said Marta Cardeano, General Manager of Bloom. “Bloom technology is providing a new way for women to address their pelvic disorders from the privacy and convenience of their homes.”
