Congratulations again to IDE alumnus Nitin Gurram, who won the prestigious Red Dot Award in the Design Concept category for his graduation project, Foxpat Surgical Trainer. Earlier this year he also won an iF Design Talent Award and the silver award in the A' Design Award & Competition for this project.

Foxpat, a realistic simulation of a regular patient's knee, is a reusable training simulator developed to train surgeons who carry out Oxford Partial Knee Replacement surgery. Nitin’s project – a collaboration with Zimmer Biomet – was mentored by IDE’s Professor Richard Goossens and Assistant Professor Jun Wu.

The Red Dot is an award for high quality design concepts.
