As part of the Glia project for Open Medical Devices, Canadian Physician Tarek Loubani and his colleagues developed this 3D printed stethoscope that was cheap and easy to produce, while having exceptional sound quality. They first made and used this stethoscope in Gaza, Palestinian Authority due to shortages of medical instruments.

This original, complete version was printed in Gaza in August 2015. This model is "red" (green Y-piece because the original broke quickly). This is the first complete stethoscope used in practice.
