Siemens Mammomat Inspiration wins design awards

05.06.2009
Mammomat Inspiration, the digital mammography platform designed by Siemens and designaffairs, has received the iF Product Design Award 2009 and the red dot award: product design 2009.

The device for the early detection of breast cancer shows that ease of use, high functionality, and unique design come together beautifully in a single medical engineering product.

Siemens Healthcare and designaffairs jointly designed the Mammomat Inspiration, the first mammography system to incorporate the MoodLight function. MoodLight is an LED glass panel that can be illuminated with freely selectable colors, producing a comfortable, relaxing effect on the patient.

Since 1953, the iF Industrie Forum Design e.V. has presented the internationally recognized iF awards annually. The awards celebrate products that excel with a unique combination of functionality, user friendliness, and esthetics, and meet all the criteria of an innovation. Mammomat Inspiration from Siemens won one of the iF Design prizes in the Medicine / Health+Care category. A total of 802 awards were presented among the 2,808 applicants from 39 countries.

With more than 11,000 submissions from 61 countries, the red dot design award is one of the largest design awards worldwide. The award, the red dot, is seen as a quality seal for excellent design quality. The jury of noteworthy designers and design experts awarded the Mammomat Inspiration with one of the coveted red dot awards in the “product design” category.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
