These award-winning young innovators are currently students at the University of Johannesburg. In March 2022, their Digital X-Ray Glasses were named among the Top 3 innovations, beating 43 teams worldwide at an international technological event, Redbull Basement Global Finals in Istanbul, Turkey.

“When our teammate was injured playing soccer it was difficult for us to see her in pain whilst we waited for hours for an X-ray. We knew that there must be a quicker and more portable solution than traditional X-ray machines."

“After much thinking and deliberation, we came up with the innovation of Digital X-ray Glasses. Just think, after a tough tackle in a rugby match, the medic could take a digital X-ray there and then and secure the player’s safety. This innovation could not only help the medical profession but also save lives,” said Matlhogonolo and Masego Mphahlele.
