Hello world 👋

We're building the future of women's health solutions.
You can help.

We are Scientists Engineers Creators Learners Professionals a Movement a Community

Building solutions for women[1] with science at the core.

The Situation

Pain, brain fog or mood changes around your period. Sound familiar?

4 out of 5 women experience pain, mood or cognitive menstrual-cycle related challenges every month yet only 1 out of 5 women will talk about it.[2]

Don't blame them. When women seek solutions, they're often told to "put up with it" and rarely receive any real explanation (let alone a solution) for what they experience.[3]

› Our thoughts 📖
Too little collaboration, funding and prioritisation.

"Women's products" are rarely women's products.

How are there three billionaires in space, robots cooking pizza and a new iPhone every year, but women's health solutions still look like this? 👇

Putting pain killers in a pink box and charging more is not advancing women's health.[4]

The pink tax is everywhere.

Women are more likely to get sick using VR. Wearables are normally optimised for the male head.[5]

The Metaverse wasn't built for us all.

Only two out of five women’s front pant pockets (if they even have pockets) will hold an iPhone.[6]

That's not healthcare but it is ridiculous.

Our Mission

Bringing scientific rigour and women-first design together changes everything.

We started Samphire Neuroscience to build a world where women everywhere have access to scientifically validated wearable technology for their health needs, without having to sacrifice on design or lifestyle.

Building on more than thirty years of research and clinical experience, we are developing wearable neurotechnology that addresses a range of menstrual-cycle related challenges.

And that's just the start.

The Samphire Fellowship.

The Fellowship receives early access to our designs, developments and solutions. They have been with us since the very beginning, and are as hungry for change as we are.

Want to join the Fellowship’s next cohort? Everyone has something to contribute - whether that’s lived experience, technical skills, an aesthetic eye for fashion or more.

We're a global team. Growing fast.

We are scientists, feminists, engineers, designers, lawyers, students and more. We bring scientific rigour, women-first design and humility to work every day. We are bound by our passion to improve the future of women’s health.

If you think like us, or even better - if you don’t - you should work with us.

  1. While most women experience menstrual cycles, menstruation is a biological experience that is variable and manifests in different ways for different people. We welcome all those identifying with cycle-related challenges to be part of the Samphire Neuroscience community.

  2. The source for these statistics (a survey of over 30,000 women) is available here.

  3. Of course, that's just the start. If you're looking to learn more, we'd recommend starting here.

  4. Our lawyers said to be careful what we say, but we would recommend reading this and this.

  5. See this research study for an example.

  6. We didn't run the numbers, but we know who did.
