The best case scenario is that an injured patient can get to a hospital in good time so that he can be examined with an available hi-tech diagnostic machine. The reason for the Xavier X-Ray's conception was to address the issue of what happens when a major disaster strikes and gives rise to a great number of casualties who cannot reasonably get to a medical center fast enough.

Danwei Ye presents this innovative concept scanner that can be grasped easily by a generous handle on either side. In case the rechargeable battery within is depleted, these grips can be pumped in and out by the user's own muscle power to generate more energy. The Xavier X-Ray is light to carry onto the site of an emergency and fit to function for hours of rescue and assistance. It features a vivid image of broken bones on-the-spot so that doctors can move quickly down the triage hierarchy.
