Ziuz wins design award

News | March 13, 2017

The medical screening device won in the 'Product' discipline, in the 'Medicine/Health/Care' category. The iF Design Award has been one of the most prestigious design awards in the world since 1953.

ZiuZ Medical has been the market leader in medical candling equipment since the introduction of the Inspector and Photon. ZiuZ's solutions control the contents of automatically dispensed medicine bags based on a large number of parameters such as shape, color and size. Where the Photon and the Inspector are used in large dispensing centers, the IRIS has been specially developed for smaller (hospital) pharmacies. Spark has therefore taken this into account when designing the IRIS. According to the jury, this resulted in a prize-worthy result: “IRIS meets all the requirements for an ultra-precise medical product: high-quality materials, good branding, excellent color and surface finish and high usability. The countless thoughtful details convinced the jury that the ZiuZ Medical – IRIS is an extremely professional piece of equipment that is uncompromised.”
