A man who nearly lost his own mother to the disease invented the wearable device.
A Mexican company, Higia Technologies, recently launched a new bra that detects breast cancer. They call it Eva and it promises to revolutionize the fashion market by linking it to health.
Eva has two patches with biosensors placed in a radial pattern around the user’s breasts. Cancerous tumors can cause the temperature of the skin to rise because of increased blood flow, so the sensors are set up to detect the heat level of the woman’s breast: if there are alterations that do not fit within the normal levels, the bra sends out an alert to the person’s mobile phone.
