Jada System for Postpartum Hemorrhage
Jada System for Postpartum Hemorrhage

Alydia Health, a company based in Menlo Park, California, has developed the Jada System, a device designed to stop postpartum hemorrhage. The condition involves heavy bleeding after delivery of a baby. Affected women can experience extended hospital stays, and, unfortunately, can sometimes die. In fact, postpartum hemorrhage is a leading cause of maternal death in the US.

Current treatments for the condition are not ideal, and include medications that can be too slow to work, and an inflatable balloon that slows or stops the bleeding, but takes 12-24 hours to work and can be uncomfortable.

These issues inspired the founders of Alydia Health to design a new device that dramatically improves postpartum hemorrhage treatment. Their solution is the Jada System, a thin tube with a silicone tip that is inserted into the uterus, and which applies gentle suction to rapidly stop bleeding. The company has applied for FDA approval and hopes that the device will be available by the end of the year. Read more…
