Cicor Group has reported that Hocoma AG 's therapeutic back training device Valedo has been selected as a finalist in the General Hospital Devices and Therapeutic Products of the 18th Annual Medical Design Excellence Awards competition. As a supplier to the finalist, Cicor supports Hocoma AG in the development and manufacture of the therapeutic back training device.

The MDEA is 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 who are responsible for the cutting-edge products.

Entries are judged by an impartial panel of medtech experts. 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. MDEA jurors comprehensively review entries based on the following criteria: the ability of the product development team to overcome all challenges so the product meets its clinical objectives; innovative use of materials, components, and processes; user-related functions improving healthcare delivery and changing traditional medical attitudes or practices; features providing enhanced benefits to the patient and end-user in relation to clinical efficacy; manufacturing cost-effectiveness and profitability; and healthcare system benefits such as improved accessibility, efficacy, or safety, in addition to providing attention to a critical unmet clinical need.

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. Winners of the Medical Design Excellence Awards 2015 will be announced on Tuesday, June 9, 2015 at MD&M East New York.
