The Provocation —

We’ve all wondered


Why does the pelvic exam have to be so uncomfortable and anxiety-inducing? Why is it taboo to talk about? And why hasn’t the speculum been improved in nearly 200 years?

Redesigning the speculum was the right place to start, but it’s inseparable from the context in which it is used. The exam itself is inconsiderate of the patient’s physical and emotional needs and, as a result, can be procedurally inefficient.

The Yona concept, informed by both patients and providers, considers the end-to-end exam experience by focusing on a redesigned speculum, a digital experience, and physical exam room improvements.
