Introducing kGoal…

Strong pelvic floor muscles are a critical part of a healthy body. In particular, they are vital as they relate to:

  • Pleasure: strong pelvic floor muscles can enhance arousal and improve sensation, orgasm quality, and overall sexual experience
  • Pregnancy and post-partum recovery (helping the body manage changes arising from pregnancy and recover more readily after birth)
  • Bladder control: over 76% of women experience incontinence issues at some point in their life – strong pelvic floor muscles can prevent or resolve many of these issues without the complications of surgery
  • Musculoskeletal stability (back and pelvic pain, etc.)

Essentially, there are all kinds of reasons why it’s important to exercise your pelvic floor muscles, but the existing tools to help women do that are very limited.

That’s why we have developed kGoal. It is a device + app that can guide your exercise routine, measure your performance, and track your progress. It has a number of totally unique features and we think it can totally change the way people exercise and manage their pelvic floor health. We’ve also been really pleased about how excited the gynecologists and physical therapists we’ve talked to are about it.

We’re accepting pre-orders via a crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter, and we need your help to let us make kGoal a reality. Please take a look and help us get the word out!

 

Introducing The Newest Minna Team Member

Liz Miracle

We are very happy to be able to introduce Elizabeth Miracle as our newest adviser. Specializing in pelvic floor therapy, Liz is the founder and owner of Miracle Physical Therapy and is also an Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California San Francisco School of Physical Therapy. She holds a Masters of Science in Physical Therapy from Texas Woman’s University, a specialization in women’s health (WCS) from the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties, and a Certification in Pelvic Physical Therapy from the American Physical Therapy Association (CAPP). She’s steadfast in her quest to educate others about pelvic health so that women everywhere can work, exercise and be intimate with confidence.

We are extremely excited to be able to tap Liz’s expertise as we work to develop innovative products that address new aspects of general and pelvic floor health. Welcome, Liz!

A Healthy Minna Life

A few months ago, we published a post talking about what a “Minna Life” actually is and, as we get close to being able to tell the world about our newest product, we wanted to expand on that a bit.

The way we have described a Minna Life is as a goal – something we aspire to. The ideal approach to healthy and enjoyable lifestyles and relationships which, although we might never totally achieve it, we think is well worth working towards.

Our first two products have tried to address sexual health, particularly within the context of couples and intimacy. And while we’re proud of Ola and Limon and the joy they have brought, we are also excited to go beyond pleasure and address other aspects of health and wellness. We think that there is a ton of potential for us to positively impact health in broader strokes, and in fact we’ve been working hard on one way to do that for a number of months.

Keep your eyes peeled for an update and, in the meantime, we always love to hear your thoughts on what a healthier Minna Life means to you…
