Design Challenge
We will design a device that will quickly diminish pain when the injection is administered. We ultimately want a method that works faster and is less costly than existing means of numbing. Unfortunately, conventional means of numbing include complications. Topical creams can be expensive and time consuming. Injected anesthetics still cause pain and fear as they still include penetrating the skin. As a result, a patient must wait for disproportionately long time or endure an injection in sometimes very sensitive areas.
