Boy invents bra to help detect breast cancer

About the solution

Cancerous tumors may turn skin a different temperature due to increased blood flow. The bra is still a prototype and uses about 200 biosensers to map the surface of the breast and is able to monitor changes in temperature, shape and weight, and then log the information in an app, sending an alert to a user regarding disturbing changes. 
In order to get accurate measurements, the person would have to wear the bra for 60-90 minutes a week.

“EVA is a network of biosensors that covers the woman’s breast, takes the temperature data, analyses them, and sends the information to an application or any computer", he said.

Julian created his own company to develope and sell the device - Higia Technologies - beating a number of young entrepreneurs from around the world to win more than £15,000 to develop his idea.

This invention is still in early stages. It hasn't been fully tested yet and there would need to be medical trials before cancer experts started recommending it as a way to find cancer. This device doesn't replace the traditional medical exams.

Julian had the idea to create this device because when he was 13 years old, his mother nearly died of breast cancer, because it was not detected early.
