Early detection of cancer is necessary for successful treatment, and researchers at the Ecole Polytechnique federal de Lausanne (EPFL) have developed a new technology to help detect the tumor in its earliest stages. EPFL students partnered with a startup IcosaMed to develop a SmartBra with smart clothing technology. As the official EPFL website notes, the SmartBra uses a non-invasive, painless method based on frequent ultrasound monitoring for detection.
Suggestion For You:
The smart clothing emits ultrasonic waves to perform ultrasound scans for possible cancer cells. The piezoelectric material makes the clothes comfortable to wear. When the SmartBra detects a suspicious mass of cells, it alerts the wearer. The researchers plan to bring SmartBra to women by 2021. It will initially be sold to people diagnosed with cancer for routine monitoring, followed by those women who are prone to cancer. (ANI)
