Inogen One Wins Gold Medical Design Excellence Award


6/20/2011 10:50:47 AM

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., June 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Inogen has been honored with the Gold Medical Design Excellence Award (MDEA) for the Inogen One Portable Oxygen Concentrator. The Medical Design Excellence Awards competition is the only awards program that exclusively recognizes contributions and advances in the design of medical products.

The Inogen One, developed by Goleta, California based Inogen, Inc. is used to provide supplemental oxygen to long term oxygen therapy patients in their homes. Replacing traditional bulky stationary oxygen concentrators as well as portable oxygen tanks, the Inogen One provides oxygen users independence in their homes, around their communities, and even while traveling. "Our customers and the patients we directly serve are the true recipients of this award. It is our unwavering commitment to oxygen users and their quest for independence that compelled us to develop this oxygen therapy solution that has been recognized throughout the industry," said Raymond Huggenberger, Inogen CEO.

Entries in the Medical Design Excellence Awards are evaluated on the basis of their design and engineering features, user-related functions that improve healthcare delivery and change traditional medical attitudes or practices, features that provide enhanced benefits to the patient, and the ability of the product development team to overcome design and engineering challenges so that the product meets its clinical objectives. A comprehensive review of the entries was performed by an impartial, multidisciplinary panel of third-party jurors with expertise in biomedical engineering, human factors, industrial design, medicine, and diagnostics.

The 2011 MDEA Winners Ceremony was held June 8, 2011 in conjunction with the Medical Design & Manufacturing East Conference and Exposition in New York City's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

Inogen is innovation in oxygen therapy. Our mission is to improve freedom and independence for oxygen therapy patients through innovative products and services.

As a manufacturer and Accredited Homecare Provider dedicated to oxygen therapy, Inogen is ideally suited to develop products tailored to oxygen therapy users and to provide superior service to those users in their homes.
