18 Female-Focused Health Devices

From Cancer-Detecting Bras to Wearable Fertility Trackers

— December 20, 2016 — Lifestyle
Health devices that are specific to women's needs are becoming increasingly common, with such devices ranging from products that can detect harmful changes in the body, to those that can track women's ovulation periods.

Researchers at Colombia's National University developed a bra that is able to detect abnormalities in women's breasts. The bra contains infrared sensors that measure temperature and indicate with lights whether or not the user's breasts have any abnormalities in them or not. It is not a replacement for diagnoses as users are then expected to visit their doctor, but could be crucial in early detection -- and as a result potentially life-saving.

The Ava is a wearable that was designed for women who are looking to become pregnant and enhance their chances of doing so. The device is worn at night and discerns five days in each cycle where wearer's are most fertile and as a result, doubles the chances of pregnancy.
