YO Sperm / Medical Electronic Systems Teams Up with Smart Health Technology TMSC, Vietnam
Medical Electronic Systems is delighted to announce our partnership with a new distributor in Vietnam, Smart Healthcare Technology TMSC. Smart Healthcare Technology TMSC will ensure successful distribution of the YO Home Sperm and other Medical Electronic Systems products across the Vietnamese market, making them accessible to individuals or couples who wish to learn more about their fertility at home, and to providers offering new fertility screening solutions to their patients.
Infertility affects 1 in 5 couples, and in around 40-50% of cases there will be a male contributing factor. (1) (2) Smart Healthcare Technology TMSC is unwavering in its commitment to fertility research. The World Health Organization states that infertility may be associated with a number of factors, including lower fertility rates caused by exposure to environmental pollutants. (3) A valuable research collaboration has been established between Medical Electronic Systems, Smart Healthcare Technology TMSC and the University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Ho Chi Minh City. Using Medical Electronic Systems laboratory-grade Sperm Quality Analyzers and YO Home Sperm Test Kits for sample testing, the research team is investigating the impact of pesticide exposure on the sperm quality of farmers working in the Mekong Delta. Following successful completion of the project, Smart Healthcare Technology TMSC hopes that the information learned will help support the reproductive health of farmers and the local community.
YO Home Sperm Test allows men to check the Motile Sperm Concentration (MSC) of their semen sample to determine if this measurement is above or below the normal range. Taking the YO test also generates a YO Score which ranks a man’s MSC to other men who have fathered children based on World Health Organization studies. If desired, men can monitor their MSC and YO Score over time to check for possible changes in fertility factors.
Both Smart Health Technology TMSC and Medical Electronic Systems are looking forward to expanding the availability of YO Home Sperm at-home fertility screen solutions and professional grade SQA systems for advanced diagnostics. Both of these initiatives are seen to benefit the Vietnamese population. Future collaboration will continue to support ongoing research into male fertility to help Vietnamese citizens start families and stay healthy!
