 In Companies, News

The US-Portugal based health tech company SWORD Health has unveiled ‘Bloom’ — an at-home physical Health therapy for women.

The Porto and New York-based company which specialises in digital musculoskeletal care states that 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 personalised 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.
“I’ve suffered many years with pelvic pain and this solution 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 (pictured). “Bloom technology is providing a new way for women to address their pelvic disordersnã from the privacy and convenience of their homes,” she added.

It is the first virtual solution to pair its members with a licensed physical therapist and the SWORD Health Digital Therapist, to deliver a clinically proven, personalised treatment plan that is more effective, easier, and less expensive than the traditional gold standard of care. SWORD Health believes in the power of people to recover at home, without resorting to imaging, surgeries or opioids. Since launching in 2015, SWORD Health has worked with insurers, health systems, and employers in the US, Canada, Europe, and Australia to make high quality musculoskeletal care accessible to everyone.
