What is Braster?
Braster is an innovative medical device for
comfortable in-home breast examination.
The efficacy of the Braster System has been proven in observational studies, and its fast operation
and simplicity have been confirmed by its users.
Braster is a medical device that monitors the distribution of temperature in the breasts and records areas of higher temperatures, which may indicate malignant changes.
The Braster Care mobile app for smartphones and tablets connects wirelessly to the device, providing intuitive instructions throughout the entire examination and sending the data to the Braster Telemedical Center for analysis.
The app is available for smartphones or tablets with Android and iOS (except for Samsung Galaxy J3 (6) and LG-E610).
Braster is an oncological vigilance system, complementary to standard diagnostic methods and screening.
It should be noted that combining various types of examination increases the chance of detecting alarming changes at an early stage of the disease, which may allow for less invasive treatment and enhance the probability of a complete recovery.
Compared to normal cells, cancerous cells have an increased metabolism and create a dense capillary network. Those two processes result in the creation of higher temperature focal points, visible on contact thermography.
Thanks to a special matrix using contact thermography, the Braster medical device is able to register even 3 mm breast areas with a higher temperature, which may be a sign of alarming malignant changes*.
* Report from the ThermaMED observational study
The advantages of the Braster System include the ability to perform a reliable monthly self-examination and to receive results without leaving one’s home.
* The trials were conducted in Poland on a group of approximately 2000 women, of which 1010 were examined as part of observational studies in the years 2013–2016.
Efficacy proven in observational studies
The Braster medical device was created in cooperation with Polish specialists from the best research centers. Thanks to their knowledge of, among other things, liquid crystal technologies, optoelectronics, and artificial intelligence, we were able to create a system that has the potential to become an important tool in breast cancer prophylaxis for women around the world.
Braster holds TUV NORD certificates in quality management systems, the main advantages of which are improvement of quality and services and a reduced risk of complaints.Learn more

Check whether you can self-examine using the Braster device
Thermal images produced during the examination are analyzed based on the determination of the thermal and structural balance of both breasts. Surgeries, pregnancy, or infections may cause changes in the structure or temperature of the breasts, which can undermine the reliability of the results.
Due to changes in breast structure and temperature during pregnancy, lactation, infections, or as a result of surgeries, Braster cannot be used for a specific time by women in the following cases:
Expert opinion on
the Braster medical device
"The key to reducing the breast cancer risk is prophylaxis, prophylaxis, and once more prophylaxis."
"On the basis of over 1000 examined women, we can certainly conclude that contact thermography is efficient in detecting neoplastic lesions."
