Call for Entries - 15th Annual Medical Design Excellence Awards

The MedTech Industry’s Premier Design Competition is now accepting entries. Proudly presented by UBM Canon and MD+DI, the Medical Design Excellence Awards program has provided market visibility to over 500 innovative MedTech products that are changing the face of healthcare today. The MDEA also celebrates the achievements of medical product manufacturers, their suppliers, and the many people behind the scenes—engineers, scientists, designers, and clinicians—who are responsible for these groundbreaking innovations.

Entries are evaluated by a multidisciplinary panel of jurors with expertise in industrial design, engineering, human factors, manufacturing, medicine, and other design and healthcare-related fields. Selected products must not only pass design and engineering excellence, manufacturing effectiveness and innovation, but also the overall benefit to the medical and healthcare industry.
