A Palestinian-Canadian doctor is taking the shortage of medical supplies in the war-torn Gaza Strip into his owns hands.
Dr. Tarek Loubani designed and created a stethoscope at a cost of only $2.50 using a 3-D printer, according to FoxNews.com.
According to the article, import restrictions have caused medical supply shortages since Hamas took over the Gaza Strip in 2007.
Doctors say the device, called the Glia stethoscope, is comparable to the the Littmann Cardiology III, a leading model on the market.
The 34-year-old emergency medicine doctor is not stopping at stethoscopes. According to the article, the Glia Project has also created 3-D surgical tools.
