Developing A Customised Comfort Bra to Aid Recovery from Mastectomy

Since most breast prostheses are designed based on Western models, it is often difficult for breast cancer patients in Asia to find a comfortable fit in weight and shape. This project has developed a novel mastectomy bra which addresses the different needs of patients recovering from mastectomy and accommodates requirements related to age, BMI, and body shape. The invention employs sophisticated ergonomic design and 3D material engineering. The materials used also offer a better thermal comfort experience for patients at a lower cost, relieving potential health problems and psychological pressures during recovery.
