Cicor is pleased to announce that Hocoma AG's therapeutic back training device Valedo has been selected as the Bronze Winner in the General Hospital Devices and Therapeutic Products category of the 18th Annual Medical Design Excellence Awards competition. As a supplier to the winner, Cicor supports Hocoma AG in the development and manufacture of the device. The 2015 MDEA winning products were announced at the 2015 MDEA ceremony held Tuesday, June 9, 2015 in conjunction with the MD&M East (www.MDMeast.com) event at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York.

The MDEA are the medtech industry’s premier design competition committed to searching worldwide for the highest caliber finished medical devices, products, systems, or packaging available on the market. The awards program celebrates the achievements 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.

The 2015 MDEA Juror Panel selected 45 exceptional finalists in 10 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.
