The MDEA are the medtech industry’s premier design competition, committed to recognizing significant achievements in medical product design and engineering that improve the quality of healthcare delivery and accessibility. The awards program celebrates the accomplishments of the medical device manufacturers, their suppliers, and the many people behind the scenes—engineers, scientists, designers, and clinicians—who are responsible for the cutting-edge products that are saving lives, improving patient healthcare and transforming medtech—one innovation at a time.
“We are honored to be recognized by the MDEA judges,” said Vicki Thompson, Director of Product Development for NOWDiagnostics. “We’re proud to see the innovative design of this platform recognized in this way.”
The 2017 MDEA Juror Panel selected 45 exceptional finalists in nine medical technology product categories. Products were judged based on: design and engineering innovation; function and user-related innovation; patient benefits; business benefits; and overall benefit to the healthcare system. Unlike other design competitions that are merely styling contests, the MDEA jury is comprised of a balance of practicing doctors, nurses and technicians alongside industrial designers, engineers, manufacturers and human factors experts.
