Engadget editors award OhMiBod highest honor at world’s largest electronics show
OhMiBod was named winner of the “Digital Health and Fitness Product” category at the International CES® 2016 “Best of CES Awards.” The company won for its new Lovelife krush Kegel exerciser. Chosen from thousands of companies appearing at CES 2016, OhMiBod’s first internable product stood out to Engadget’s editors for its level of innovation, quality of design, overall efficiency and market demand. Winners were chosen in 16 different categories.
The new Lovelife krush is connected via BLE 4.0 (Bluetooth Low Energy) and equipped with built-in sensor technology. The Kegel exerciser is also an internable — a new class of health-monitoring devices that are located within the body instead of worn externally. These advanced features make the Lovelife krush a natural evolution of OhMiBod’s growing line of connected pleasure products.
“We were impressed by OhMiBod’s vision and execution, and it had the buzz of the show as one of the best innovations to come out of CES this year,” said Michael Gorman, Editor in Chief of Engadget. “Over the last five days we’ve evaluated thousands of devices and products to find the technologies that will change the industry and our lives. OhMiBod clearly was the best in show in ‘Digital Health and Fitness Product’.”
Lovelife krush was designed specifically for women—many of whom experience a weakening of the pelvic floor due to childbirth and age.
“This honor from Engadget is more than a win for OhMiBod. It’s a victory for women’s sexual health,” said Suki Dunham, founder of OhMiBod. “We’re thrilled that the CES community voted to shine a light on the importance sexual health and well-being for adult women around the world. ”
Lovelife krush works with OhMiBod’s new TASL app to measure the pressure, control, endurance, and grip of PC muscles and help women strengthen them through training challenges. Stronger PC muscles improve sexual pleasure and also aid in keeping incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse at bay.
Lovelife krush will be available in spring 2016. Lovelife krush can be preordered at lovelifetoys.com for $75, a significant discount from the retail price of $129 through the end of January. Customers who preorder the krush received Lovelife natural intimate lubricant as a complimentary gift with their purchase.
