A better way to get punctured

Nikolai Begg | TEDxBeaconStreet

Devices that puncture tissue are ubiquitous in medicine and also inherently dangerous; tens of thousands of puncture-related complications occur each year in the United States in procedures such as craniotomies, epidurals, and laparoscopic surgery. By focusing on the fundamental physics, learn how this 26-year old PhD student invented a device to solve a wide-reaching medical challenge that will likely affect all of us at some point in our lives.

Nikolai Begg is a PhD candidate in Mechanical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a passion for inventing safer medical devices and surgical instruments.
