From the number of steps we take to the hours we sleep, it's clear we are obsessed with tracking their bodies' data. So why not track sperm? The average sperm count in men has fallen significantly and continuously over the last several decades due to biological, environmental, and lifestyle shifts.

Now, men will be able to take control of their health with a new, FDA-cleared, at-home device called the Trak Male Fertility Testing System. The test allows men to measure and track their sperm counts as "low," "moderate," or "optimal" based on World Health Organization guidelines. The award-winning system allows men to measure and improve reproductive health addressing the growing problem of male fertility, which accounts for 30-50% of all infertility cases…all from the comfort of their recliner.

The Trak Male Fertility Testing System from Sandstone Diagnostics uses centrifugal force to isolate and quantify sperm cells using specially designed disposable cartridges.
