The MDEA is presented by UBM Canon and sponsored by MD+DI (Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry) magazine. Now in its 15th year, the program recognizes both the design achievements and healthcare contributions of medical product manufacturers 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. 

Parties interested in entering in the 2012 MDEA competition are encouraged to visit www.MDEAwards.com for complete program details, including eligibility requirements, a downloadable entry form, rules, instructions, and an entry materials checklist. Accepted in ten medical product categories, entries are evaluated by a multidisciplinary panel of jurors with expertise in engineering, medicine, human factors, industrial design, manufacturing, and other design and healthcare-related fields. The submission deadlines for the 2012 MDEA competition are November 14, 2011 (early-bird) and December 9, 2011 (standard).

Finalists will be publicly announced in the April issue of MD+DI magazine. The winners will then be announced in May at a special presentation ceremony held in conjunction with the Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) East Conference and Exposition, May 22-24, 2012, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. MDEA-winning products will be honored with Bronze-, Silver-, or Gold-level awards in each category. Also, one Gold-winning product will be awarded "Best-in-Show".

The MDEA program is endorsed by AdvaMed; the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering; the Healthcare Technology Foundation; the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society; the Medical Device Manufacturers Association; and the National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance.
