Seminar: Design and 3D print of a wearable stethoscope


Auscultation is a standard medical practice performed by clinicians when inspecting a patient during preliminary examinations. Auscultation is usually performed by using the stethoscope to listen to the body sounds.
The goal of this work is to develop and 3D print a novel stethoscope to be embedded in a wearable device for long-term auscultation.


The project aims to design a novel, wearable stethoscope for long-term auscultation.
