GETINGE, Sweden, August 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Getinge Infection Control has been awarded the prestigious and coveted Red Dot design Award for its innovative user-interface called Getinge CENTRIC. The design of the newly launched user-interface for sterilizers and washer-disinfectors received the jury´s attention, thanks to its user-centric approach and focus on process assurance and safety.
The Red Dot Design Award is one of the world's largest design competitions. The international jury judges each of the 7096 entries live and in-situ in sessions running over several days.
Getinge Infection Control has in the past years developed CENTRIC a new patent pending user interface for washer- disinfectors and sterilizers, used in the Healthcare and Life Science segments. Creating a user interface for equipment in the infection control settings that enables an efficient, safe and intuitive handling required extensive user involvement and research engagement.
Getinge CENTRIC offers a unique guiding interface, showing only the information the operator needs in each situation. The interface is coordinated throughout all Getinge products for recognition and safe use. The aim of the intuitive and guiding interface is to minimize the risk of human error and allow the users to operate the machines with higher confidence and in less time. Another important aim is to support staff in solving errors themselves without lengthy stop in the flow of goods, and to substantially reduce costly training time.
"Winning the Red Dot award for Getinge CENTRIC is recognition that the intuitive user-interface is truly a game changer for our industry. The development of CENTRIC is designed with the user in mind. From this perspective, CENTRIC offers our customers more efficient processing and safer handling of their equipment in an appealing format," says Anders Grahn, President & CEO for Getinge Infection Control.
In this process Getinge has worked in close cooperation with the Swedish design and innovation agency Lots. This is the second time Getinge Infection Control and Lots wins the Red Dot seal together. Lots has extensive experience and knowledge of developing creative and brand new design solutions that meet people´s needs.
"Getinge CENTRIC is a good example of user centric innovation, where deep user involvement during the development process resulted in a completely unique user interface that supports the staff," explains Hanna Ljungström, Design Manager at Lots.
