Menstrual Cups

Mademoicell – for Stem cell collection

 

Mademoicell

Mademoicell was designed to collect menstrual blood to be used for stem cells.  Where you would ship the full cup to a lab to have the stem cells extracted and stored.

It is not clear whether these were actually ever commercially available, or if they were a conceptual design only

  1. Yeah, the petal design doesn’t look very ergonomic – but I guess for ease of insertion, they just pinch together? Still, when they pop open upon removal, that must get a bit messy!

  2. I wondered if you fold them in for insertion.. but then you’ll have to remove it with them still poking out.

    Unless the silicone is very flexible. They might not be made to be a complete seal like a cup – as they are just trying to collect some blood, rather than being designed to be a menstrual product.

    Who knows…
