Project summary

Next-gen condom made from innovative tough hydrogels.

What is the issue?

Condoms are the only medical device that can simultaneously prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). However, condoms are often avoided because of the stigma of reduced sensation during sex. What if instead there was a condom that people couldn’t wait to try? Producing a condom that people actually want to use would revolutionise the definition of safe sex, enhance family planning (reducing the 85 million unintended pregnancies per year), support sexual health strategies (reduce STI rates), save healthcare agencies millions worldwide, and disrupt a growing $8 billion global market.

What does the technology aim to do?

Eudaemon Technologies is creating the next-gen condom made from innovative materials called tough hydrogels. These tissue-like materials perform like latex rubber but with enhanced feel, self-lubrication, have no adverse odours or tastes, and do not cause allergic reactions.

The project will establish the manufacturing and clinical validation to create a market ready product for consumers. Through investment from NSW’s Medical Devices Fund, Eudaemon Technologies will demonstrate the ability to on-shore condom manufacturing in Australia and provide these superior condoms to address sexual health needs in NSW, Australia, and the world.
