About the iF Design Award
Surgical Science announced today that SimFrame, the platform for the company’s flagship LapSim and EndoSim systems, has been awarded the prestigious 2015 Gold iF Design Award. An international jury of experts evaluated nearly 5,000 entries from across the world, awarding 1,629 iF Design Award winners.
Of those, 75, including Surgical Science, were recipients of the additional iF Gold Award for “best in competition,” honoring particularly exceptional design achievements. “When we developed the SimFrame platform we wanted it to be sophisticated, elegant and easy to use, both inside and out,” said Hans Uddenberg, global product manager. “Our team has managed to pair cutting-edge technology with premium design that has established us as a design leader beyond the borders of virtual reality surgical training. This award is a testament to the designers, engineers and others who worked with a tireless attention to detail to produce something of global critical acclaim.”
