Could EVA bra detect breast cancer in early stage?
Julian Rios Cantu an 18-year-old student from Mexico has invented a bra (EVA) to detect the signs of breast cancer
The Eva bra, made by him and three friends who formed a company together and has won the top prize at the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA).
How would EVA work against breast cancer?
The idea of EVA bra associated with the technology of biosensors which were connected to an app and continuously monitor the changes happening in the breast like temperature differences, changes in shape and weight. So that the user can get the regular alerts about the unexpected changes. For better and accurate women should wear this bra for at least 60-90 minutes per week.
Julian’s motivation for this invention:
He was motivated at age 13 when his mom got breast cancer for the second time.
A doctor told her the lumps she had found were not malignant, but the doctor was wrong. Six months later, a second mammography found they were cancerous and in the end, both her breasts were removed.
Is it really works?
EVA bra is still in experimenting and developing stage so it is too early to decide the efficiency of the bra. According to studies, cancerous tumors may turn skin a different temperature due to increased blood flow but at the same time increased blood flow isn’t necessarily the sign of breast cancer.
Apart from all these, it is really appreciable that people from younger generation getting into science entrepreneurship which can help for the social cause.
