The bag is made out of silicone, which is then sewn on all sides. The top of the bag has a reusable clamp that easily screws on. On the bottom of the bag, there is a 3D printed adjustable ring that adjusts to the infants with different sizes of holes, which makes it easier for untrained medical professionals to use. “We want to make sure the bags hold the intestines tight enough to make sure they reduce slowly because the cavity can only expand gradually,” said Owais Fazal, a social policy analysis major at Rice University.
The team intends to do further testing. They must receive an institutional review board approval before any validation with patients in western countries. “The Ugandan doctor we met with last week said he would definitely want to reuse a bag like this, without a doubt,” said Dr. Rebecca Richards-Kortum, Rice’s Malcolm Gillis University Professor of Bioengineering and director of Rice 360º.
