April 18, 2022 — The Smart-C, by Turner Imaging Systems, has received the 2022 Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) Silver Medal in the category of Radiological, Imaging, and Electromechanical Devices. This is the medtech industry’s premier award program to honor achievements in medical product design and engineering that improve the quality of healthcare delivery and accessibility. Entries are judged by an impartial panel of medtech experts, including practicing doctors, nurses, designers, engineers, manufacturers, and human factors experts. MDEA jurors comprehensively review entries based on product design, use for materials, patient and end-user benefits, system benefits, improved accessibility, and unmet clinical need. Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry (MDDI) editor Daphne Allan adds that, “this year’s entrants were amazing; each playing a significant role in changing the direction of the industry and bringing viable new innovations that overcome today’s most pressing challenges in the healthcare field.”

"The Smart-C is a disruptive X-ray imaging system finding new uses in clinics, operating rooms, urgent care facilities, sport, military medicine, humanitarian missions, and emergency departments," says Mike Orthner, PhD, Director of Business Development "This technology has shown positive impact on healthcare efficiency; point-of-care X-ray imaging leads to quicker diagnoses, faster interventions, and improved outcomes with reduced costs.”

Healthcare systems are under enormous strain and the novel Smart-C design challenges the choke-point of traditional diagnostic and surgical imaging. Being compact, collapsible, lightweight, battery-operated, and water-resistant enables fluoroscopic imaging virtually anywhere; even in the rain. Turner Imaging continues to set itself apart from competitors by prioritizing patient and provider needs to create products that improve outcomes by increasing capability, improving efficiency, and reducing cost of care.

“It is an honor to earn this design recognition,” said Tom Youd, COO and VP Engineering, “Our highly talented and experienced engineering and design team spent countless hours refining the product design while observing and listening to our medical partners. We responded to their needs by designing a truly unique game-changing device. We’re excited to be bringing this new X-ray imaging option to both patients and providers alike.”
