3D printed stethoscope

Description

3D printed stethoscope made by Alejandra Guzman for DHN 3300 UOttawa

It was based on the one made by Glia Project project for Open Medical Devices
Date: 2015
Place: Gaza, Palestinian Authority
art. no. 2017.0002 Ingenium: Canada's Museums of Science and Innovation.
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.
