Flexible Innovations Limited, developer of egripsÂ® technology, has been nominated for the Product Design and DevelopmentÂs 10th Annual Engineering Award. This award honors engineers and the products they design. The contest is open to any design engineering team working in the United States that developed a creative and innovative product sold between September 2003 and August 2004.
egripsÂ® technology is a thin, super grippy, silicone-based material from which egripsÂ® are made. egripsÂ® are appliques that adhere to cell phones, PDAs, handheld devices, medical assistive devices and sporting equipment, providing a better grip and keeping the device from slipping from your hand or off your console.
Flexible Innovations Limited, a leader in development of advanced materials, created egripsÂ® technology, a very thin silicone based product with unique features. egripsÂ® safeguard mobile phones, smart phones, PDAs, and other handheld and medical electronic devices from potentionally damaging falls by giving users a better grip. With egripsÂ® attached, devices donÂt slide out of userÂs hands or off the edges of slippery surfaces. For critical applications, such as canes and walkers, egripsÂ® provide a more secure firm hold on the device for added safety
ÂProducts featuring egripsÂ® technology offer the best grip possible. The grip is further enhanced when one piece of the material is attached to a glove and another is attached to the handle of the object thatÂs being gripped. Products featuring egripsÂ® technology have an incredible grip when the two faces come in contact with each other. The material provides optimum performance and safety.Â
