Blind women use touch to detect breast cancer


A first of its kind study claims that when visually impaired women use tactile strips to map every centimetre of the breast, their high levels of sensitivity bring out better results, saving women by early detection.

A voluntary organisation based in Delhi, the National Association for the Blind’s Centre for Blind Women has started training women to be MTEs to empower them professionally and financially. This training has been certified by the Rehabilitation Council of Germany.
