LIVIA® WINS 2018 GOLD EDISON AWARD™
iPulse Medical’s Menstrual Pain Device Receives Gold for Innovation in Women’s Wellbeing Category
April 25, 2018 – iPulse Medical Ltd. announced today that its Livia menstrual pain relief device was awarded the Gold in the Wellness Technology: Women’s Wellbeing category at the 2018 Edison Awards.
For the past 31 years, the Edison Awards have honored the best in innovation and excellence in the development of new products and services around the world. An Edison Award is widely acknowledged as one of the highest accolades a company can receive in the name of innovation and business. The awards are named after Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931) whose inventions, new product development methods and innovative achievements literally changed the world, garnered him 1,093 U.S. patents, and made him a household name on a global basis. This year’s awards ceremonies were held on April 11th at The Capitale in New York City.
“We are both thrilled and humbled to have won such a prestigious honor,” said Chen Nachum, the CEO and founder of iPulse Medical. “To have our company join a list of past Gold award winners that includes Apple, 3M, Disney and General Electric is a wonderful testament to the unprecedented benefits our innovative technology and marketing are bringing to thousands, and soon millions, of women suffering from period pain.”
The ballot of nominees for the Edison Awards was judged by a panel of more than 3,000 leading business executives including past award winners, academics and leaders in the fields of product development, design, engineering, science and medical. “Our judges recognized Livia as a true innovator out of the many products in its category,” said Frank Bonafilia, executive director of the Edison Awards. The Silver and Bronze awards in the Wellness Technology: Women’s Wellbeing category went to the Always and Olay divisions of Procter & Gamble.
Livia was created in response to the age-old yet glaring need for an effective, fast-acting, drug-free solution to the menstrual pain that plagues over a billion women globally. Clinical studies and voluntary feedback from tens of thousands of women worldwide have clearly established Livia’s ability to provide significant and even complete relief of menstrual pain within minutes, in a very discreet, comfortable and stylish manner, and without the side effects that can be associated with pain medications.

About iPulse Medical
iPulse Medical was founded in 2015 by software engineer and entrepreneur Chen Nachum, who had previously founded two successful technology-based companies. The son of a Zvi Nachum, a highly successful inventor, Chen instantly saw the commercial potential of his father’s invention of a menstrual pain relief device that had been proven successful in clinical testing. Chen assembled a state-of-the-art technical team to commercialize the technology and engaged a top creative agency to strategize and launch a crowdfunding campaign for the product, which he branded Livia. Livia went on to surpass its fundraising goal by over 1,000% and enjoy viral exposure on social media networks and media publications. Livia’s innovative technology was recently recognized with the Gold for the Wellness Technology: Women’s Wellbeing category at the prestigious 2018 Edison Awards in New York City. iPulse Medical is currently selling Livia through distributors and retailers in several countries, including Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal and Switzerland, and is pursuing expansion into several additional markets. Consumers may also purchase Livia directly at www.mylivia.com and on Amazon.com in the United States and Canada.
