New “Smart Bra” might warn of cancer

Developed by Professor Elias Siores at the University of Bolton in the UK, the Smart Bra uses an infrared technology called thermography to detect minor temperature changes in breast tissue. The changes would alert the smart-garment if cancer cells are beginning to form. The bra would be worn in place of a regular bra and would even feature a small and discrete alarm to alert the wearer if something has been found.

A new piece of technology aims to help women detect breast cancer long before it happens.

While this technology is a way off, the research and idea behind the Smart Bra could lead to an early detection system sooner than you think.
