2014 Kinetic Process Innovation Award Winners Announced

Awards Recognize Outstanding Achievements in the Application of Innovation and Technology

CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- Winners of the 18th Annual Kinetic Process Innovation Awards sponsored by High Tech Views were announced today honoring four companies whose technology makes a significant contribution to supporting business growth and achievement for their customers. Additionally, one Vision Award winner has been named for a product or service accomplishment that exhibits the greatest potential for helping to solve and transform a critical business challenge using technological innovation.

neoSurgical, a medical device company, has been honored with the 2014 Vision Award for its innovative neoClose device, which brings an intuitive solution to assist surgeons in simply closing port site defects following laparoscopic abdominal surgery. The device is designed to help minimize port site herniation, often a clinical consequence of surgery. The Vision Award honors a company that exemplifies a technology breakthrough, which neoSurgical has clearly demonstrated. The award is judged on three key themes: Innovation, Value and Impact.

"The number of advanced technological applications submitted for this year's awards was truly outstanding. From neoSurgical's medical device breakthroughs to risk management solutions for the financial services industry, sealing solutions for medical devices, clinical trial management and management applications for manufacturing, are truly amazing," said Drew Barrows, deputy editor of High Tech Views. "As in previous years, with the variety of technologies represented, judges found it extremely challenging to make their final decisions. The winners, however, are the best of the best and are truly having an impact on creating better efficiencies and ROI for their customers."
