About discovering hands
discovering hands (dh) utilises the superior sense of touch of visually impaired women in the early detection of breast cancer. dh trains women to become medical tactile examiners (MTU) and then places them in various medical practices and clinics where they perform breast cancer screenings. Scientific studies verify that MTU can sense about 30% more breast tissue changes than doctors. In the same time, dh creates meaningful work for visually impaired people who are often excluded from society.
dh's services are available in several cities in Germany, where numerous health insurances cover the fees, as well as in India.
