Discovering Hands India

Tactile breast examination is a unique breast screening methodology developed by renowned German gynaecologist Dr. Frank Hoffmann and his organization discovering hands (certified by Rehabilitation Council of Germany) to provide accessible breast screening for women of all age groups. This technique employs the superior sense of touch of trained visually impaired women, to detect the minutest abnormalities in the breast, by a standardized breast examination undertaken with the support of Braille strips. This technique is integrated with standard methodology of Self Breast Examination (SBE) and ultrasonography /mammography to provide different options to help women detect abnormalities at an early stage by regular screening. For more information please refer to this link: discovering hands- Germany

This program is successfully implemented in Germany, Austria, Columbia, Mexico and Nepalwith over 1,00,000 women screened. Visually impaired women under this program undergo a 5 day assessment to get selected in the program. After successfully completing the assessment they are enrolled in the 9 month training program where they learn about anatomy, physiology, types of lump and screening practices and the tactile breast examination technique. Research Study: Diagnostic Accuracy of Breast Medical Tactile Examiners (MTEs) was published in 2019 on the technique in Breastcare and the program has been recipient of many prestigious awards.
