- It’s called the Glia Project, and it aims to provide basic medical devices for developing countries. The Gaza Strip has been making due with minimal medical supplies for years, for instance.
- The first Gila stethoscope was 3D printed in Canada and tested on a balloon. Tests found it was “on par” with the best models on the market.
- It’s not just stethoscopes that the Gila project is working on. They hope to 3D print surgical tools and pulse oximeters, as well.
3D printed stethoscopes cost as little as $2.50 and are just as good
