Elekta’s latest linear accelerator, Elekta Harmony, has won a 2022 Red Dot Award for product design.
Harmony was granted CE mark and U.S. FDA 510(k) clearance in 2020 and 2021.
According to Red Dot, product submissions came from around 60 countries vying for the product design award. Only those products that impressed the judges with “their outstanding design quality” won a distinction.
“As in our Elekta Unity system that in 2019 also won a Red Dot Design Award, significant effort went into developing a modern, seamless design for Elekta Harmony,” says Lionel Hadjadjeba, MD, President, Linac Solutions at Elekta. “Harmony incorporates continuous curved lines that visually suggest softness and calm. The system also features a lower treatment couch for initial patient positioning and subsequent up-and-down movement to ensure accommodation for even the smallest patients. In addition, user controls enable therapists to maintain a close physical and emotional engagement with the patient during important moments in the treatment process.”
