Celesstia Health is a NY based start-up that is developing a smarter, easier way to scan for cancer, the Celesstia smart bra “Evie”. Any regular bra can become smart by simply placing the technology integrated cups underneath and connecting to Celessia’s app. It is the world’s first breast cancer status monitoring sensor embedded in fabric.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. Many of us know someone personally whose life has been affected by breast cancer. About 1 in 8 U.S women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Finding breast cancer early reduces your risk of dying by 25-30% or more.
With the new screening guidelines from The American Cancer Society, what happens in between regular visits is unknown. With the introduction of Evie Smart Inserts, Celesstia gives women a way to bridge the gap between exams and put women in touch with changes in their breast health, before it’s too late.
According to Breastcancer.org, “There are about 190,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 60,000 cases of non-invasive breast cancer this year in American women. As with many other diseases, your risk of breast cancer goes up as you get older. About two out of three invasive breast cancers are found in women 55 or older”.
The Discovery of Celesstia Bra “Evie”
With the patented Celesstia bra “Evie”, women can now be alerted by any changes in their health, just by wearing the technology integrated bra. Celesstia Founder, Peter Mankowski, states, “This bra can identify cancer-specific symptoms in their earliest stage so treatment can be done before its too late”. The Evie bra inserts connect to your phone via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).
Why Celesstia Health
Celesstia gives women ways to stay on top of their own breast health.
What Else Does Evie Do?
In addition to scanning for cancer, it acts as a fitness tracker (steps, distance and calories). Through its kinetic energy harvester, the battery recharges naturally through your movement and helps prolong the battery life of your device.
The Mobile App
You can view all of the information collected by Evie on the Celesstia Health app.
