Mindray Medical International convinced the 40-member expert panel for the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2014 with the high design quality of its BeneHeart R3 electrocardiograph. In the current competition, the international experts discussed and evaluated 4,815 entries from 53 countries. But only designs which won over the jury with quality and innovative strength gained an award. Mindray’s BeneHeart R3 was successful and received the coveted Red Dot quality seal as its deserved reward.
“The BeneHeart R3 is an attractively small 12-lead full function diagnostic electrocardiograph designed as a completely integrated structure with a seamless upper cover for easy cleaning,” said Dr. Shen Luo, Deputy General Manager of ECG products at Mindray. Operation of the R3 is intuitive, featuring a 5-inch high resolution color LED screen for clear display, a keypad with functionality-grouped color and numerical keys and a thermal printer which provide accurate trace presentations and easy-to-read reports. Paper loading is facilitated via a side mounted paper-tray door pushdown lock with minimal resistance to opening the concealed paper tray. The ECG printout automatically unfolds on the writing pad located at the top of the device, thus conveniently allowing for quick notes or signatures. Both roll and Z-fold papers are also supported. At only 1.2kg in weight with a battery and internal AC power supply, the R3 offers a supremely lightweight yet powerful advanced ECG analysis solution.
Prof. Peter Zec, initiator and CEO of Red Dot, on the decision process in the Red Dot Award: “This is especially reflected in the percentage of successful entries in the Red Dot Award, which is much smaller in contrast to other international design competitions. Therefore, the winners can be proud of their achievements – with their entries, they stood out from the rest and were able to pass the test in front of the critical eyes of the experts. This success will be perceptible during the Red Dot Gala, when the laureates will receive the recognition of the international audience.”
As David Yin, General Manager of Mindray International Marketing and Sales System explains, “This is the 4th time that a Mindray product has been awarded a Red Dot Design Award. We are proud that the concerted effort of our R&D teams to understand the needs of medical practitioners and patients and couple ergonomic, user-friendly design with cutting-edge technology have been recognized and applauded in such a way.”
