Having worked in an ER for 10+ years, I’ve seen time and time again the limited conditions both clinicians and female patients experience during pelvic exams. With the lack of proper equipment available, many of these exams were conducted with patients propped up on bedpans. I knew there had to be a better way. I invented Porta-Gyn®, a portable pelvic exam device to bring decency and ease to patient care in emergency rooms and across the spectrum of women’s healthcare facilities.
Pam began developing the original prototypes for what is now our PortaGyn device in 2015. Since then, we've created dozens of iterations, fine-tuning each aspect of the device to integrate seamlessly into any medical facility.
