Company Summary

Fertility is a $40 billion industry, largely focused on women. Men contribute to half of cases of infertility but are often ignored. Sandstone launched the FDA-cleared Trak system Jan '17 - hardware, disposables, and a companion app for men to use at home to assess sperm count and take control of their fertility. Higher counts lead to faster conception and Trak is helping men become fathers as reported by customers using the system!
