Femtech or female technology refers to a healthcare industry which encompasses any digital or standard health tools aimed at women’s health. The industry includes a range of health software and tech-enabled products that cater to female biological needs such as:
INTERNET-CONNECTED MEDICAL DEVICES
PREGNANCY AND NURSING CARE
WOMEN’S SEXUAL WELLNESS
REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM HEALTH CARE
HYGIENE PRODUCTS AND OTHERS
This wide range of solutions improves healthcare for women in a range of women’s specific conditions, including menstrual health, sexual and maternal health, fertility, menopause and contraception, as well as a range of general health conditions that affect women disproportionally or otherwise, such as endometriosis.
Accelerating public awareness
While this concept of a digital women’s health category is relatively new, the dynamics underlying femtech are accelerating public awareness, company formation, and funding is growing. Therefore, the FEMaLe project found its place and purpose in solving some of these problems which femtech is referring to, because its role in women’s health is more important than ever.
The project will deliver different femtech solutions which would help people with endometriosis in the first place. Also, the FEMaLE clinical decision support TOOLS will be a template for a range of precision medicine applications from novel R&D/companion diagnostics discovery and improved clinical trials design through to practical clinical/lifestyle decision support tools for use by healthcare providers and patients.
