Milestone Scientific Inc., a leader in advanced injection technologies, has announced that Medical Device & Diagnostic Industry magazine has distinguished the STA System as a winner of the 2008 Medical Design Excellence Award in the "dental instruments, equipment and supplies" product category.
Of the 33 products to receive an MDEA this year, Milestone's STA System was one of only two winning products that serve dental practitioners.
Sponsored by MD&DI, the Medical Design Excellence Awards competition is the premier awards program for the medical technology community. 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 health care.
MDEA-winning entries excel in the areas of product innovation, design and engineering achievement, end-user benefit and cost effectiveness in manufacturing and health-care delivery.
To select the 2008 winners, a comprehensive review of the entries was performed by an impartial, multidisciplinary panel of third-party jurors with expertise in biomedical engineering, human factors, medicine and diagnostics. The 2008 jury selected 33 winners in 10 medical product categories.
