The 37-member jury of experts chose the company for its pain management devices, which are wireless remote-controlled medical devices for back pain, out of more than 4,662 products that were entered. Only a select few are considered annually for the top award.
“We are honored to achieve the Red Dot: Best of the Best designation for our WiTouch products,“ Chuck Thomas, president of Hollywog, said in a prepared statement. “... This prestigious award exemplifies our dedication to unique design and high quality to evolve ordinary medical devices to extraordinary levels. I am very proud of the Hollywog team and our development partners based in Australia, Katapult Design and Procept. Our global collaboration defines the standard for design and development required to succeed in today’s global market.”
Dr. Peter Zec, initiator and CEO of Red Dot Awards, said that strong design competence and economic success go hand in hand.
“The winners of the Red Dot Award ... are the protagonists of a highly developed design culture and design industry," Zec said in a prepared statement. "These days, it is becoming more and more difficult to distinguish between well-designed products. It is often only in the details that the special qualities become apparent. However, those product creations that pass the test before the critical eyes of the international Red Dot jury will not disappear into the crowd and will be able to fend off global competition.”
The Red Dot Awards are one of the world’s most acclaimed competitions. The prize, the “Red Dot,” has established itself internationally as one of the most sought-after quality marks for excellent design, according to a prepared statement. The Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen displays the award-winning products in the Red Dot Design Museum for at least one year.
