The tech-enabled platform, which focuses on women’s menstrual health, claims to have built the world’s first gynaecology robot, which uses artificial intelligence (AI) to identify menstrual abnormalities and prescribes Ayurvedic supplements. 

The initial investment of $2 million came from the couple’s personal savings, who had one aim — “combining technology, content, and Ayurveda to solve period problems.”
