Date:6/29/2010

On June 9th, at the Medical Design and Manufacturing Exposition in New York City, MDEA winning products were celebrated in a ceremony marked by an announcement of the competition's gold and silver awards. The HyGreen Hand Hygiene System was named a gold award winner in the category of general hospital devices and therapeutic products.

Gainesville, FL (Vocus) June 29, 2010 -- Earlier this year, Xhale Innovations (XI) was awarded the 2010 Medical Design Excellence Award (MDEA) for the HyGreen Hand Hygiene System. On June 9th, at the Medical Design and Manufacturing Exposition in New York City, MDEA winning products were celebrated in a ceremony marked by an announcement of the competition's gold and silver awards. The HyGreen Hand Hygiene System was named a gold award winner in the category of general hospital devices and therapeutic products.

MDEA is the premier awards program for the medical technology community. It recognizes the achievements of medical device manufacturers, their suppliers, and the many people behind the scenes—engineers, scientists, designers, and clinicians—who are responsible for the groundbreaking innovations that are changing the face of healthcare. MDEA-winning entries excel in the areas of product innovation, design and engineering achievement, end-user benefit, and cost-effectiveness in manufacturing and healthcare delivery.

“It is an honor to receive this recognition,” said Ron Youngblood, XI Director of Operations. “HyGreen was designed to provide the first line of defense in the control of healthcare associated infections and it is exciting that HyGreen was recognized for the major contribution it is making to the safety and well-being of patients and healthcare workers.”

Studies show that healthcare associated infections take the lives of nearly 270 people in the U.S. every day and add between $30 - 50 billion to U.S. healthcare costs. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that many of these infections are caused by the lack of hand washing before and after each patient contact. The HyGreen® Hand Hygiene System addresses this problem by reminding healthcare workers to wash their hands and by recording all hand washing events and patient-staff interactions in the hospital.
