Winners of the 2012 Medical Design Excellence Awards

The winning products in this year's Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) competition, presented by UBM Canon, were announced at a presentation ceremony held May 23 inside the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown hotel. The ceremony was held in conjunction with the MD&M East Event at the adjacent Pennsylvania Convention Center.

In addition, Dean Kamen (inventor, entrepreneur, and tireless advocate for science and technology) presented the prestigious 2012 MDEA Lifetime Achievement Award to famed inventor Dr. Thomas Fogarty for his vast accomplishments over the last half century. This award honors an individual whose contributions during a long career have had a demonstrable impact on technological, business, and cultural advancements in medical devices.

Presented by UBM Canon, and sponsored by Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry, the MDEA program is the MedTech industry's premier competition for medical device design and innovation. It recognizes the achievements of medical device manufacturers, their suppliers, and the many people behind the scenes -- engineers, scientists, designers, and clinicians -- who are responsible for the groundbreaking innovations that are changing the face of healthcare. MDEA-winning entries excel in the areas of product innovation, design and engineering achievement, end-user benefit, and cost-effectiveness in manufacturing and healthcare delivery.

A comprehensive review of the entries was performed by an impartial, multidisciplinary panel of third-party jurors with expertise in biomedical engineering, clinical practice, diagnostics, human factors, industrial design, manufacturing, and medicine. The 2012 MDEA Jury selected 25 winning products out of 41 finalists in 10 medical product categories.
