Students in the advance Contemporary Issues of HIV/AIDS of the Medical Genetic department need to learn to demonstrate the proper use of female barriers against sexually transmitted disease by the end of the semester. Currently, an adequate model to show proper use of female barrier is unavailable, thus, instructors have resort to illustrated figure to educate students in this matter. The goal of this project is to design a pelvic model to be used as a teaching tool to demonstrate proper installation of female barrier devices. The model needs to be compatible with over-the-counter female condoms and dental dam. Team members (from left to right): Karen Chen, Tu Mai, Rexxi Prasasya
We have contacted some departments that potentially have the proper female pelvic models, and waiting to hear back from them. We will also be contacting floats companies that make customize floats for swimming.
