A unique bra is being tested to help with early detection of breast cancer.
First Warning Systems of Reno, Nev. has created a Breast Tissue Screening Bra which has the ability to continuously examine wearers so it can detect any changes in their breast tissue. An article on Huffington Post says the sports bra-like material is encased with sensitive sensors that can detect small changes in temperature in breast tissue.
Researchers tested the bra on 650 women, and results were more than 90-percent accurate.
If it gets FDA approval, the product could be available in the U.S. by 2014. The website says the retail price would be around $1,000.
