Judging Process and Criteria
Entries are evaluated by an impartial, multidisciplinary, panel of MedTech expert jurors. Unlike other design competitions, the MDEA Jury is comprised of a mix of practicing doctors, nurses, and technicians alongside industrial designers, engineers, manufacturers, and human factors experts. Selected products must pass design and engineering excellence, manufacturing effectiveness and innovation, clinical efficacy and overall benefit to the healthcare and medical technology industries.
