Medical devices from Dräger receive 2009 iF product design award





Two Dräger products received the iF product design award in 2009: The Ponta beam system and the Infinity C700 for IT workstation. A total of 2,808 products from 39 countries were submitted. The international selection committee awarded 802 labels for superior product design. These two medical devices were among the first Dräger products developed according to the company’s current design guidelines.

The iF Industrie Forum Design e.V. in Hannover recognized the Dräger products Ponta and Infinity C700 for IT for their innovative product design in the category “Medicine/Health + Care”. The ceiling-mounted supply unit Ponta integrates not only extraction points for gas, electricity and IT connections, but also dimmable light sources. Based upon different requirements; monitors, infusion pumps and consoles at intensive care workstations can be attached in various ways and moved around on trolleys. The Infinity C700, the cornerstone of Dräger's Omega widescreen solution, is a medical-grade workstation that combines an industry-standard CPU with a 20” wide touchscreen color display that makes information easy to see, even from a distance. The fan-free design lowers noise and dust levels, and the optional rotary knob provides navigation in addition to the touchscreen.
