Paper stethoscope / Medical equipment

By adding a universal 3D printed earpiece using environmentally friendly materials to the ordinary water cup, the doctor's auscultation work under protective clothing is completed. Not only can it prevent cross-infection between patients, but it is also safer, lower cost, and low-tech compared with Bluetooth stethoscopes. At the same time, it can also help doctors and patients to have face-to-face communication, give more care to patients, and achieve a better doctor-patient relationship.
