Our science

Ava is an innovative technology company that aims to advance women’s reproductive health by bringing together clinical science and data science.
Clinical science

Our wearable sensor technology is backed by rigorous clinical trials. The results are published in peer-reviewed medical journals and contribute to the scientific body of knowledge around female reproductive health.

Data science

Our data science team draws on results from clinical trials along with the more than 100,000 cycles recorded by our users to continually refine Ava’s machine-learning algorithms.

Clinical science

Developing clinically tested results, published in peer-reviewed journals

Since the launch of “The Pill” in the 1960s, there have been few major advancements in the field of women’s health. As a company, we’re working to fill that gap. Our clinical research team is made up of experts in the fields of obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive endocrinology. Their mission is to expand the body of knowledge around female health and to apply those learnings to create innovative products that improve women’s lives.

Current research

Our flagship product, the Ava bracelet, has been shown in clinical studies to detect the fertile window in real time. The most recent results are published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Medical Internet Research and confirm changes to five physiological signals of fertility throughout the menstrual cycle. Ava tracks all five.

Ava’s clinical science team is actively engaged in research related to women’s healthcare across their entire reproductive lifetime, including the topics of:

Menstrual cycle

Fertility

Pregnancy

Contraception

Menopause

Data science

Revealing actionable and accurate data unique to every user

Ava’s sensor bracelet collects data 25 times per second while you sleep. This information is then analyzed to pinpoint your fertile window in real time using four different algorithms.

Our team of data scientists develop the advanced algorithms that drive Ava’s technology, building the datasets to the point that machine learning takes over to provide the most accurate results for the broadest range of women’s cycles.

20% from the sale of every Ava bracelet goes towards women’s health research and development.
