Mama-Ope – Uganda
Pneumonia is responsible for 16% of all deaths of children under five with the death rate also being considerably high among adults. This is largely due to the fact that diagnosing the illness is often very slow.
Faced with this, Uganda inventor Brian Turyabagye decided to invent the biomedical smart jacket proven to diagnose pneumonia four times than a medical doctor does. The award-winning invention is gaining momentum with additional upgrades added to perfect the life-saving jacket from Uganda.
