Is it a
medical catchphrase or a philosophy of life? People today are being made more
keenly aware of what a healthy everyday life is and encouraged and trained to
live one in many different ways. Little helpers are all the things that prompt
us to adopt a changed, health-conscious lifestyle, to promote, record,
evaluate, and analyze fitness and the things that give us recommendations.

Five Design Highlights of Healthy Living
Next Generation Safety Injector (Duoject Medical Systems, Canada) | Safety injector for home care
Nowadays, not all illnesses require medical care outside the home. But self-therapy, of a chronic illness for example, requires assistive devices that are absolutely safe. They must be absolutely precise and easy to use and not pose any risk to the patient. Visually and haptically, the Next Generation Safety Injector meets all these requirements down to the last detail. Innovations like this place a stronger focus on trust and the well-being of the user. For Healthy Living – despite all the difficult circumstances.
From running through the forest in the 1970s to the tennis and aerobics crazes in the 1980s and right on up to the all-time favorite, the sport of soccer – the world of sports is subject to changes in fashion. The fact is: when you move, you get more out of life. It’s the only way to stabilize and promote your health and to reduce the incidence of lifestyle diseases. The X-BIONIC® EFFEKTOR® 4.0 Trail Run Shirt is proof positive that there is no longer any need for ankle warmers or sweatbands, but rather for functional and intelligent sportswear that supports fitness enthusiasts. Patented compression, which warms and cools at the same time – thumbs up for such clever innovations!
Philips Fresh Air Mask (Philips, The Netherlands) | Face mask
The fact that this mask from Philips was selected as a winner by the judges before the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic is a clear indication of how important it is for the Asian region it was specially designed for. Here, fashionable appearance goes hand in hand with precise, replaceable filter technology – after all, due to the air pollution in these regions, these masks have already been an integral part of the scene in the metropolises of millions for a long time. While protective face masks have been used primarily on construction sites and in hospitals in Europe in the past, we will now have to adapt to seeing protected faces everywhere in the world. And if they all solve the problem the way the Philips Fresh Air Mask does, we will have already gained a lot.
StethoMe (StethoMe sp. z o.o., Poland) | Smart electronic stethoscope
Concerned parents with small children often face a difficult decision: Wait and see – or go straight to the doctor? The StethoMe is a professional medical device for home use that is a good example of how to get quick recommendations for action in the digital age. An easy-to-read interface provides feedback based on the diagnosis and can also transmit data to the doctor in charge. Important when introducing such Healthy Living tools: a profound, data-based assessment based on accurate measurement results. This is how telediagnostics can be successful.
Polar Ignite (Polar electro Oy, Finland) | Waterproof fitness watch
A personal trainer on your wrist, a medical check-up right on board with you: fitness trackers have long since become on-board computers in our sports world. The digital helpers have professionalized and individualized the way in which we achieve our health and wellbeing and optimized the way in which we move. The technically precise Polar Ignite, designed as an elegant wristwatch, delivers valuable, detailed insight into the user’s fitness level.
