  • Bra uses biosensors to measure temperature and alert the wearer to changes
  • Information is logged in an app which will let women know if something is wrong
  • Women would need to wear the Eva bra for just 60 - 90 minutes a week
  • Bra is at the prototype stage but the team won $20,000 (£15,500) to develop it

A Mexican teenager has invented a bra that could provide an early warning for women developing breast cancer.

The technology uses biosensors to measure temperature and alert the wearer to any worrying changes.

The young entrepreneur created the bra after his mum nearly died of cancer when he was 13 years old - and now it could potentially save the lives of millions.

Julian Rios Cantu, 18, and his three friends, developed the Eva bra which is equipped with 200 biosensors that monitor the temperature, shape and weight of a woman's breasts.

Information is logged in an app which will let women know if there are worrying changes.

Women would need to wear the Eva bra for just 60 - 90 minutes a week.

Their company, Higia Technologies, won the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA) in Frankfurt, Germany on April 27-29.

The 'auto exploration bra' is only at the prototype stage.

Thanks to the GSEA competition they now have now won $20,000 (£15,500) to develop it further, writes BBC.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The bra has 200 biosensors that monitor the temperature, shape and weight of a woman's breasts.

Women would need to wear the Eva bra for just 60 - 90 minutes and it would measure temperature and alert the wearer to worrying changes.

This information is logged in an app which will let women know if there are worrying changes.
