Details of the Technology Call

Menopause for most women begins in their mid-40s. In developed countries, there are now more women over the age of 45 than under the age of 45. Nearly 1B women worldwide, roughly 40% of the world's female population, and 48MM women in the US alone are over the age of 45. Nearly 90% of them will experience symptoms of menopause driven by the loss of estrogen over time. However, due to lack of information, fear/inaccessibility of treatments, confusion and frustration, 50% of women do nothing to alleviate the sometimes debilitating discomfort and disruptions caused by menopause symptoms.

Provide women with the information, support, and treatments they need to embrace the change of menopause without fear, frustration, or confusion.

  • Solutions for key symptoms of menopause and female aging
  • Product forms including Topicals, Supplements, Medical Foods, Medical Devices or other regulatory classification that does not require a prescription
