Our Mission

At cervos we strive in finding solutions for women with cervical incompetence (CI). We have designed a minimally invasive device to help these women reach a full-term pregnancy.

Clinical Need

Currently 227,000 women are diagnosed with Cervical Incompetence each year. These women are constantly in fear of losing their baby because they might not reach a full-term pregnancy as the current treatment options for this condition are not 100% effective.

Our Solution

We have created a non-invasive device that will support the cervix, therefore ensuring women with CI can carry their baby to full-term. Our device is composed of FDA approved material and will be customizable to ensure a proper fit for all women.
