iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2017

Transfusions are a common therapy method in conventional medical treatment, with the traditional bags being suspended on the normal IV supporters. Though this ensures the stability and the fixed height, there are still some problems that need to be solved effectively. It is, for example, quite difficult to figure out how much liquid remains in the IV bags. What’s worse, when nurses get very busy, they might not notice that it is time to change the bag, which causes blood return. The lever mounted on the IV supporter makes it clear which bag is empty using only the lever principle.

I choose this design because of its simplicity. The designer uses a very simple principle to indicate if an infusion is full or empty. This keep it simple approach results in an efficient product.
Jury-Statement
I'm very excited to hear the news. If there were no teachers to thank, I would not be where I am today. In the future, I will make more efforts to constantly improve myself and strive for better results.
