During the Engineering Week pupils from “Kantonsschule am Burggraben St. Gallen” designed, programmed and evaluated an injection simulator for spinal anesthesia. The spinal anesthesia is a challenge in the practical work and hard to practice for medical students. In order to provide better practice facilities, the pupils developed a new solution, which simulates the insertion of the needle for spinal anesthesia on a model.

3D for all
The use of 3D printing continues to rise among students and researchers. ETH Zurich has set up a special web platform so people will be able to find the right printer faster in future. At the same time, the ETH Additive Manufacturing Community has also been created, forming a place where researchers can exchange ideas on the various applications of 3D printing.
