They create a smart bra for the early detection of breast cancer

Scans the chest for potential cancer cells through a non-invasive method

Early detection of breast cancer is essential to fight and beat the disease. Mammograms are the first tool to detect it, although technology is increasingly showing itself as an ally against the disease.

More accurate analysis or artificial intelligence are two new agents to diagnose this cancer in its early stages. Now, a group of Swiss researchers has gone a step further by involving clothing in this process.

This team of scientists from the Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne in Switzerland have developed a smart bra that can detect breast cancer in the early stages of development.

It is a non-invasive ultrasound-based method to scan the chest for potential cancer cells. During the scan, if the system detects a suspicious cell mass, it sends an alert signal to the user, so that she can contact the specialist doctor.

“Our smart clothing technology is designed to detect cancer in the early stages. It uses a painless, non-invasive method based on frequent ultrasound monitoring, “says Hugo Vuillet, one of the students on the development team.

The device scans the chest for potential cancer cells through a non-invasive method.

The device works with ultrasound waves, such as those used in high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) and low power pulsed ultrasound (LIPU), to perform ultrasound scans for potentially cancerous cells.

“Our system could do more than detect cancer: we hope that one day it can also act preventively and emit almost continuous low-dose ultrasound waves in a controlled way to stimulate apoptosis in the cancerous mass,” says Max Boys set, founder and CEO from IcosaMed.

Those responsible for these projects plan to market this smart bra first to women who have already been diagnosed with cancer, so that it helps control their evolution, with the intention that it will eventually be available to other women, in 2021.
