'Dotplot' a device for monitoring breast health at home, has won the James Dyson Design Award 2022.

Although the Dotplot is not to be used instead of visiting the doctor with a concern, it is being heralded as an important tool that can be used to monitor breast tissue and possible changes as part of monthly self-examination.

The device was designed by Shefali Bohra and Debra Babalola (pictured below).
