Quanta wins Industrial Product Design of the Year
The Plastics Industry Awards 2018
1 October 2018: Quanta Dialysis Technologies Ltd, a British medical device company pioneering innovative haemodialysis products for dialysis patients, is pleased to announce that it has won the “Industrial Product Design of the Year” award at the Plastics Industry Awards 2018.
John E. Milad, Chief Executive Officer of Quanta, said: “I am delighted that Quanta and the design of SC+ have been recognised by a group of industry experts through this award. Assisted by Smallfry, an industrial design consultancy, the team at Quanta has worked tirelessly to hone our innovative personal haemodialysis system, SC+. We are proud of our patient-friendly, easy to use system that can support patients across the continuum of care, from the clinic to the home. This award is testament to all their hard work and efforts, and we would like to dedicate it to all the engineers and designers whose enthusiasm made this development possible.”
The design of the SC+ haemodialysis system focuses on providing an intuitive user experience, centring on a large, interactive graphical touchscreen that guides users through a treatment via logical steps. This intuitive, tablet-style approach, combined with ergonomic
industrial design, is intended to provide patients with a simple yet powerful platform for managing their treatments around their lives. Furthermore, every detail of the user experience and product design is streamlined to provide maximum safety and ease of use. The small
footprint and modern design of the SC+ machine blends unobtrusively into different environments, expanding the range of treatment options available to patients.
