FDA Clears a New Latex Condom by O-RING Products with the Technology to Ease and Improve the Application of Condoms

Patented O-RING Condoms® Take Aim at the 30% Failure Rate of Condoms to be Correctly Applied Right Side Down

June 07, 2016 - LOS ANGELES - O-RING Products LLC announced today that it has received FDA clearance for its patented O-RING Condom ®. Studies at Indiana University and the Kinsey Institute have demonstrated that at least 30% of the time condoms are applied upside down, causing a series of potential risks and unwanted events including user disruption, feelings of frustration or embarrassment, physical discomfort, loss of erection, increased risks of STIs and unintended pregnancies. O-RING Condom solves this problem by introducing a patented luminescent ring on the latex that can be easily seen when the consumer opens the wrapper, indicating which way to apply the condom so it can be applied correctly in the light or dark.

Health officials around the world recognize that one of the major obstacles to correct condom use is the fact that condoms are often applied “backwards” or upside down. FDA directions for condom use state, “If the condom does not unroll easily, it may be on backwards… Throw it away and start over with a new condom.” While experts agree that a misapplied condom should be discarded, too often condoms are flipped over and used anyway, increasing the risk of STI transmission and unintended pregnancies. Users who become frustrated via misapplication are less likely to use condoms consistently.

Professor William L. Yarber of the Kinsey Institute Condom Research Team states, “our research indicates that up to one-third of the time condoms are applied upside down, and then flipped over.” Yarber continues, “flipping condoms is a real risk factor for the transmission of HIV and other STIs. The Condom Research Team is currently investigating possible solutions to this problem including the use of the technology currently employed in O-RING Condoms.”

O-RING Condoms are effective precisely because of their simplicity: any condom user can easily understand this intuitive adaptation. The O-RING solution transcends nationalities, cultures, and languages and offers a truly universal solution to increase condom safety, acceptability and efficacy.

O-RING Products has received 19 related patents for O-RING Condom covering 34 countries. O-RING Products' officials are in the early stages of discussions with manufacturers to form synergistic business partnerships.
