Stuttgart, Germany, May 5, 2020 - The Red Dot Jury has made its decision: The D-Flex® emerged victorious from the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2020 and won a Red Dot for its good design quality. This means that the Haselmeier Group is one of the winners in the world’s most renowned design competition.
D-Flex® - The Innovative Injection Pen from Haselmeier
The D-Flex® from Haselmeier is a product platform of a new generation of disposable injection pen systems for subcutaneous self-injection. The patented D-Flex® Technology is bridging the gap between simple fixed dose pens and normal variable-dose pens as known in the Diabetes or Hormone-Therapy. This innovative technology allows easy adaptation to the titration requirements of drugs for specific therapies where multi distinct fix doses are required. All essential fix doses can be realized on just one D-Flex® Pen. These doses can be flexible selected by the customers according to their specific requirements on the titration-scheme of the special drug. It just needs the modification of just one part of the D-Flex® Pen Platform. Thus, the customers save time and money in the development of the combination product. Furthermore, the special D-Flex® Technology creates additional value for the patient by preventing injection errors and unintended dosages, thus resulting in an improved patient safety.

Detailed evaluation of the products entered
The Red Dot Award: Product Design offers designers and manufacturers from all over the world a platform for assessing their products. In 2020, designers and companies from 60 countries entered more than 6,500 products in the competition. The international jury comprises experienced experts from different disciplines and has been convening for around 65 years in order to select the year’s best designs. The adjudication process lasts several days and is based on two essential criteria: The jurors test all of the entries in order to assess not just the aesthetic but also the materials selected, the level of craftsmanship, the surface structure, ergonomics and functionality. After intensive discussions, they make a decision on the design quality of the products. True to the motto “In search of good design and innovation”, only the best designs receive an award.
