Congratulations to DDSTUDIO clients Hologic®, IntelliGuard® and InfoBionic® for being named finalists for a Medical Design Excellence Award (MDEA), the medtech industry’s prestigious honor recognizing design and engineering that improves the quality of health care delivery and accessibility.

“What these three finalists’ devices have in common is that their form function – the shape, layout, packaging, and aesthetic – are focused on the user’s perspective in context,” said Charles Curbbun, DDSTUDIO’s chief executive.

“DDSTUDIO’s human-centered design process ensures that our client’s cutting-edge technology can be encased in a solution that’s based on needs, not design preference,” Curbbun said.  “The result is transformative design that fits seamlessly into the user’s life or workflow.”

  • Hologic’s Panther Fusion® is nominated for the award in the Testing and Diagnostic Products and Systems category. The modular, field upgrade to Hologic’s fully automated Panther system combines PCR and TMA molecular testing on a single platform designed for intuitive operation, enhancing a laboratory’s flexibility and amplifying productivity.
  • InfoBionic’s MoMe® Kardia System, a wearable, ambulatory cardiac monitoring system designed for users with transient symptoms of arrhythmia, is nominated in the Cardiovascular Device category. Its sleek, unobtrusive design allows it to be worn comfortably and correctly all day, without interrupting the user’s routine or activities. It provides reliable, detailed data that doctors can access when they want, allowing for real- time diagnosis. In January, the market-shifting MoMe® won a Good Design
  • IntelliGuard’s Linked Visibility Inventory System, (LVIS), a finalist in the Nonsurgical Hospital Supplies and Equipment category, is the first real-time medication management system that operates at the point of care. Designed for the anesthesiology team working in a hectic operating room, it uses patented RFID technology to track medication uses as they occur and manage regulatory and narcotics control, while ensuring expiration and recall issues are properly dispatched, all out of sight from the point of care. LVIS won a Good Design Award earlier this year.

MDEA winners will be named at the awards ceremony June 12, at the MD&M East conference in New York City. Good luck to everyone and we look forward to seeing you in New York.
