The aim is to prototype a new nasogastric tube for patients suffering from small bowel obstruction.
The project will begin with researching the pathological condition, then drawing up a list of design requirements, and finally 3D print some new tube designs.
This will then be followed by some clinical and possibly computational testing and finally producing a report on the work completed.
The project aims to address a large need in primary healthcare using a needs-based approach and students interested in designing for clinical settings and working with clinicians, engineers and researchers are welcome to apply.
A multidisciplinary team is best so we seek non-engineering applicants as well!
