From a field of over 1490 international entries, MAT™ has been chosen as the recipient of the 2006 Gold IDEA Award for Medical Product Design.
IDEA 2006 Jurors express their thoughts about MAT™:
“The most important question to be asked of any design is ‘Does the world need this thing?’ With this tourniquet, the answer is an obvious ‘yes.’ It looks and feels as if it was designed in the field, not just for it.”
- John Thackara, Director, Doors of Perception
“…brings simplicity and elegance to a very traumatic event. Very appropriate aesthetics give a soft and comforting feeling without losing the perception that this is a serious piece of equipment.”
- Tor Alden, IDSA, Principal, HS Design Inc.
