Bill of Materials[edit]

  1. 1.5 grams of PLA
  2. Upload and link to all source files from open source CAD
  3. Upload and link to all STLs Simple Umbilical Cord Clip

Tools needed for fabrication of the OSAT[edit]

MOST Delta RepRap or similar RepRap 3-D printer

Considerations[edit]

  • Umbilical cords have no nerve endings so a slight pinching from the channels on the cord will not cause discomfort.
  • The cords take 1 to 2 weeks to fall off, once off the clip can be easily removed.

Technical Specifications and Assembly Instructions[edit]

Simply slip the clip onto the umbilical cord until it it crimped in between the jaws.

Cost savings[edit]

  1. Store bought variants cost around $12 to $20. This does not take into consideration the shipping costs to remote locations.
  2. 3 Umbilical Cord Clamps
  3. Cost of materials $.20, savings per unit $12 to $20.
