Patient Positioning Device

To: Clinical trial ready device

From: Student hand-built prototype

in2being was approached to create a durable and functional prototype of a patient positioning system for neonatal lumbar puncture. Current practice requires the practitioner to stabilize the infant while inserting a lumbar needle, a traumatic experience at best. The in2being team took an existing, student built, prototype and refined it to allow clinicians to evaluate the device’s usability.
