iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2018

In addition to gynaecological check-ups, women are advised to regularly examine their breast in order to discover breast tumors at an early stage. Most women are insecure about how to do that correctly and don't feel able to recognize any changes in tissue.
Sensa is a smart device that encourages women to regularly check their breast for any alterations. It assists the female users in performing the breast-self-examination correctly while integrated pressure sensors collect data on the structure of the breast. In case any tissue alteration is recognized, the corresponding app recommends visiting the gynaecologist for further investigation.

Smart device for self-breast-examination provides an easy and feasible solution to a growing problem of breast cancer. The product and system design is well integrated.
Jury-Statement
