The fight against breast cancer will receive a major boost following a new and first-of-its-kind bra invention by a Nigerian woman, Bolarinwa Kemisola.
Kemisola is a robotics and embedded systems engineer who successfully invented a smart bra capable of detecting breast cancer in its early stage.
The talented lady said she was inspired to come up with such an innovation after losing her aunt to breast cancer in 2017.
In 2021, she was able to do a test-run on a prototype of the smart bra. And the bra has small sensors coupled with its nanotechnology that doesn’t cause harm to the body tissues.
She explained that it is not an undergarment that replaces the normal bra or is worn throughout the day.
According to her, it is to be worn during the breast cancer check which doesn’t last more than 5 minutes.
