Patricia was fed up. Dealing with hot flashes & night sweats on a regular basis was unnerving. Not knowing when or where they would flare up wasn’t helping the situation. She continually tried to get relief with cold packs, fans, even soda cans.

They worked here & there, but she found they were not very convenient or professional, especially if she was in a meeting, teaching a class, or giving a presentation.

With hormone therapy not being an option, Patricia found herself asking,“Is there a product that would help give me relief, that is convenient and simple to use in any circumstance?”

Patricia’s husband, Steve, is an industrial designer. He took her question, and with his team, came up with a solution for her.  As small as a computer mouse and with a button to deliver cool relief within seconds, the Menopod was born.

Patricia and Steve introduced the Menopod on Dragon's Den in Canada and was offered a partnership with Arlene Dickinson, who loved the Menopod.

Red Dot Design Award

The Menopod was honoured with a prestigious Red Dot Design Award for Best of the Best Medical Devices in 2014.

"The elegant, purist appearance of the Menopod reflects the aesthetic zeitgeist and makes the device an attractive companion for daily life."
-Statement by the Jury

Small, But Mighty

In 2015, Version 2 was introduced.

Now Menopod is smaller, easier to handle and simple to use, while keeping the main focus of instantly cooling hot flashes
