GymnaUniphy winst he Red Dot Design Award 2017 for the Gymna 200 Series!

Together with design bureau GBO Innovation makers, GymnaUniphy, has been successful in winning the internationally acclaimed Red Dot Design Award 2017. The Gymna 200 series, the new standard in Electrotherapy by GymnaUniphy, has won the award for its outstanding design, ease of use and extensive quality.

Eric Dumortier, director at GBO Innovation makers: “Our design team worked closely with the specialists at GymnaUniphy and did a really great job. We were able to transform our client’s clear intentions into a beautiful and, above all, smart and practical device. We are delighted with this result of real teamwork. Gymna 200 has a very compact shape, while the smooth design means that the device is easily maintained. Considerable attention was paid to the ergonomics, assembly and quality, and the user interface was redesigned right from scratch allowing the device to be used very intuitively.”

Els Thomas, marketing director at GymnaUniphy: ”Our objective was clear from the start. We wanted a compact, easy-to-use device in a stylish and elegant design. The device needed to fit in with the existing Gymna electrotherapy portfolio, and be the bridge to the next generation. We are delighted with the result, which was achieved thanks to our many years of experience and expertise in the field of electrotherapy. The Gymna 200 series gives therapists the opportunity to achieve the 3 goals of electrotherapy: cellular effects, pain relief and muscle stimulation. This allows the patient’s treatment to be rapid, accurate and effective. 

Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award: “The Red Dot winners are pursuing the right design strategy. They have recognised that good design and economic success go hand in hand. The award by the critical Red Dot jury documents their high design quality and is indicative of their successful design policy.”

The significance of the international design competition, Red Dot Award: Product Design, with its headquarter in Essen, Germany is well established internationally. It was already more than 60 years ago that a jury convened for the first time to assess the best designs of the day. Since then, an expert team has been awarding the seal of quality for good design and innovation to the outstanding designs of the year.

Manufacturers and designers around the globe were also invited to enter their products in the 2017 competition. The jury of around 40 independent designers, design professors and specialist journalists tested, discussed and assessed each individual product, awarding the Honourable Mention for a well-conceived detail solution, the Red Dot for high design quality and the Red Dot: Best of the Best for ground breaking design. In total, the competition received more than 5,500 entries from 54 countries this year.
