WATCH: This Sports Bra Can Detect Tumors And Potentially Save Your Life
This could be a game-changer, you guys.
This sports bra, created by First Warning Systems, uses heat sensors and technology that measures blood flow to catch developing tumors earlier than mammograms could and in a less invasive way. And since early detection is by far the best way to treat breast cancer, that’s huge.
While you’re wearing the bra, the sensors in it collect data about your body, which is then uploaded to a computer to be analyzed. Then you get the results of the analysis, which tell you whether or not you need to see a doctor. Take a look at the promotional video below. It’s very educational, and is worth a watch for that alone — it definitely taught us something about breast cancer! Seriously, how cool is this idea?
