Zassi Medical Evolutions's First Commercial Healthcare Product Wins Prestigious Medical Design Excellence Award


10/19/2005 5:11:04 PM

FERNANDINA BEACH, Fla., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Zassi Medical Evolutions, Inc., announced today that its unique, Zassi Bowel Management System(TM) (BMS) has been chosen as a winner in the prestigious Medical Design Excellence Awards for 2004 (MDEA).

According to Zassi President Peter von Dyck, "The entire Team from Zassi Medical Evolutions is thrilled about winning the Medical Design Excellence Award. Given the fact that this is the first such product of its kind, and the very first commercial endeavor for our emerging company, we are very pleased that the judges recognized the Zassi BMS for the uniqueness and dramatic benefits to patient care and quality of life that it provides. This prestigious recognition adds further validation to the clear need for a new system like ours that can protect both patients and practitioners from harmful, bacteria-laden stool which is a primary contributor to the growing incidence of Healthcare Acquired Infections."

The Medical Design Excellence Awards is the premier international awards program for the medical technology community. It recognizes the companies and individuals who are responsible for the groundbreaking innovations that are changing the face of healthcare. The products selected as winners stand out in the areas of innovation, design and engineering excellence, patient benefit, and cost-effectiveness in healthcare delivery. The winners are selected by an impartial, multidisciplinary panel of third-party jurors consisting of experts in biomedical engineering, human factors, industrial design, medicine, and diagnostics following a comprehensive review of the entries.

The award-winning Zassi Bowel Management System (BMS) is a catheter-based system designed to effectively and reliably divert, collect and contain potentially harmful and contaminated fecal waste from chronically bedridden or immobilized patients. It effectively separates patients and caregivers from fecal contamination, providing a level of sanitation never before possible.

The Zassi BMS has been selected as a winner in the general hospital devices and therapeutic products category. The award ceremony will be held during the Medical Design & Manufacturing East 2004 Conference and Exposition in New York City in June of 2004.
