Smart Nursing Bra

Project description

A wearable device to boost breastfeeding rates

While breastfeeding is natural, it is not always easy. An estimated 80 % of mothers and babies experience difficulties with breastfeeding. More than 60 % of mothers quit breastfeeding within the first four weeks after the baby’s birth due to a perceived insufficient milk supply. The EU-funded Presque project aims to reverse this trend with the world’s first smart nursing bra with novel bio-sensors, fluid delivery systems and machine learning to benefit the physical and mental health of mothers and babies. The smart bra permits the dual functions of direct breastfeeding and supplementing without interrupting natural breastfeeding or competing with mother’s milk. It also enables the collection of valuable frontline health data to monitor and improve outcomes.
