Smart Bra



A startup out of MIT is creating a wearable specifically aimed at better monitoring and understanding women’s cardiovascular health through an article of clothing worn closest to a woman’s heart: her bra.

Bloomer Tech is developing flexible, washable circuits with sensors to be sewn into the lining of a bra. The smart bra device will monitor electrocardiogram signals from the heart (in addition to other biometrics) and send real-time data to a woman’s smartphone, as well as to her doctor. The startup aims to provide patients and doctors with more accurate data to prevent and treat cardiovascular disease.


This was developed by the Centre for Materials Research & Innovation (University of Bolton, UK)

The smart bra uses a microwave antennae device built into the structure of the bra. Data about each breast is collected by embedded microchips which generate computer-generated images. Professor Elias Siores, director of CRMI, said: “The breast screening smart bra is an invention that allows users to detect breast cancer at a curable stage. It is a low-risk, non-invasive, simple-to-use and cost-effective device that can provide easily-interpreted data.
