ATLANTA, June 14 /PRNewswire/ -- MedShape Solutions, Inc. was recently awarded top honors and received the prestigious Gold Award for their MORPHIX™ Suture Anchor at the recent Medical Device + Design Excellence Awards meeting (MDEA).  The panel of jurors awarded the MORPHIX™ Anchor the Gold Award based on its superior design and use of a proprietary shape memory polymer, PEEK Altera™.  Previous winners of the MDEA award include DePuy, Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Stryker Corporation (SYK) and Smith & Nephew (SNN).
