The goal of this project is to design a laparoscopic grasper that can give surgeons accurate tactile feedback, reducing risk of damage to organs and tissues.
GHDI provided me with am amazing opportunity to apply the skills I had been learning in school to a real and complex design opportunity. My team and I were given the freedom to explore design as it relates to healthcare while also receiving the support we needed to thrive. We developed authentic collaborations with healthcare providers, which enhanced our understanding of obstetrics, our design, and our experience in Ghana.
