The University Museum has a number of special obstetric forceps which were used to deliver the ‘Nijhoff quintuplets’ in 1904. Another object on display is an experimental neonatal incubator. These are typical examples of Groningen’s academic heritage. They were developed by Groningen physicians and medical instrument makers.
