FutureNova is celebrating having won Consumer product Design of the Year at the prestigious Plastics Industry Award for its innovative medical-grade iPad case, FlipPad.
Producer, entertainer and former Strictly Come Dancing pro Brendan Cole presented Mike Casey CEO FutureNova with the award in front of a packed audience of industry professionals at a gala dinner at the London Hilton on Park Lane on Friday 28 September 2018.
Judges praised the practicality of the design and Brendan Cole mentioned it a clever product for healthcare and the Apple iPad.
FlipPad is water and shock proof and can be kept sterile with standard infection control sprays. Its wipe-clean design is built to withstand harsh infection control chemicals, while the touch-sensitive screen allows staff to control the iPad even when wearing surgical gloves. The case can be used in operating theatres to infection control wards and can be hung on a hospital bedrail.
Mike Casey CEO FutureNova, said: “Winning this award from the industry is high praise indeed, it is a testament to the design team and the belief that we can design and build great products in Britain.”
FutureNova is a design company based in Chelmsford with offices in Kent. They design medical grade products that work with the Apple iPad and iPhone. The products are built in the UK and exported to 16 countries including the USA and Gulf States. There are three new products in design already and we are recruiting to meet demand.
Launched in 2001, and held annually in London, the Plastics Industry Awards are dedicated to rewarding innovation and exceptional performance in an increasingly competitive market. Sixteen categories cover materials usage, product design, manufacturing, training and environmental performance, and entries are judged by a panel of industry experts.
