    About This Project

    Hospital-acquired infections are a distinct risk to patients in many developing nations. Stethoscopes, in particular, are a primary fomite for pathogen transmission between patients due to their frequent and ubiquitous daily usage. As such, this engineering project aims to iterate upon our existing wearable and affordable stethoscope sterilization device, one that can be operated with ease in between patient visitations and make use of local hospital resources.
