Rediroom — Instant Patient Isolation Room received a prestigious Good Design Award Gold Accolade in the Engineering Design category in recognition for outstanding design and innovation at this year’s Good Design Awards.
Care Strategic along with its partner GAMA Healthcare and collaborator Design + Industry received the award as part of the 2021 Good Design Week by Gooddesign.org.
The Good Design Awards Jury commented: “With global cases of COVID-19 now over 200 million, and many healthcare systems struggling to provide the sort of safe isolation facilities needed to care for critically ill patients, this product has very strong global appeal. The innovation comes from finding a solution using standard methods, but in unique ways — and with a particular focus on speed of implementation. It’s an impressive design for many good reasons. This design scored highly on impact — for the benefits it can have in our current health crisis and future ones (antibiotic resistant bacteria), highly for innovation (a new design that adds value) and high for design. Overall, this is a highly professional piece of design that deserves to be recognised and celebrated in these Awards. Bravo.”
Care Strategic’s Head of Design remarked, “This is a great achievement for the team. We were so happy to receive a Best in Class Award yesterday for the Rediroom for Product Design. And today’s win recognises the mechanical engineering complexity that has been hidden inside the Rediroom to make it an intuitive and easy to use device – to make it so fast and easy to deploy. Thank you Good Design and to all those who have made the Rediroom a success especially our clinical and design teams, and of course GAMA Healthcare and Design + Industry.”
