A GAME-changing fertility tracker which increases women’s chances of becoming pregnant has been developed at Warwick University’s Science Park.
Fertility Focus, based in Gallows Hill, has launched a new app version of its real-time OvuSense fertility monitor.
An internal device is used to accurately measure core body temperature and relays the data back to the app which gives an accurate indication of fertility to its users.
The original version featured a sensor device and a separate monitor, however the new version links the device to an app – making it cheaper and the data more accessible.
Worn overnight by its users, the internal device takes temperature readings every five minutes and helps to enhance the user’s knowledge on their fertility.
Rob Milnes, CEO of Fertility Focus, said: “The app was developed with funding from a number of investors which started supporting us in 2010.
“As OvuSense is a class two registered medical device, clinical trials have taken place not just in the UK but further afield – it is our team in Warwick which is at the heart of the business.”
Karen Aston, centre manager at the Warwick Innovation Centre, said: “This is a very exciting development which could benefit countless women who are struggling to conceive.
“It is wonderful to see businesses at the University of Warwick Science Park develop new products which could change people’s lives.
“We wish Fertility Focus every success with their new product.”
