Can you win a design prize with medical devices? Why not?
For decades, medi has attached great importance to producing medical devices with other attributes besides their efficacy. They should feel good when worn, look lovely and, if possible, remind people as little as possible that it’s a medical device. Because the ultimate aim is to give people better quality of life. This is why medi's focus extends far beyond the effect of the product. For example, with the mediven compression garments for men. Thanks to their design they don't look like a medical product, they look more like expensive men's socks – indispensible if men are going to like wearing them.

Award-winning shape and function
iF has been the epitome of the successful combination of design and economy since 1953. iF's objective is to permanently heighten public awareness of design*. After all, good design means more than just a good look. What's far more important is the combination of clever functionality and an aesthetic external appearance. And the fact that this is even possible in the field of medical devices is proved by the presentation of the iF design award to medi's products.
