Developed by researchers at the University of Arkansas, ‘E-Bra’ is an extremely modern way for people to keep track of their heart health.

Linked up to smartphone software, the garment, which looks like a sports bra, tracks many helpful health stats. From heart rate to blood pressure, this is an incredibly useful tool capable of giving wearer’s a minute-by-minute comprehensive snapshot of their bodies. Ideal for individuals with cardiac issues, this is a very futuristic and portable take on medical awareness. Particularly helpful in detecting the factors which indicate oncoming cardiac arrest, this could potentially save lives.

This tech will undoubtedly influence the future of healthcare. Putting matters into the hands of users, this may be a strong indicator of where medical care is headed.
