Pictures from the event

Dignity and Daily Living

Platinum winner

Homefill II Oxygen filling system, Invacare

Judges’ comments: “Being able to fill up oxygen bottles at home is going to make a world of difference to COPD patients.

“I see patients who can’t live their lives or leave their homes, and this will mean they can go out to the theatre or anywhere they like with complete freedom,” said one.

The judges liked the impact the product could have on a potentially huge market, that cylinders were lighter and easier to carry.

“It’s the tops,” said one judge.

Judges’ comments: “Brilliant,” said our judges. “It is repackaged, repurposed and simple and easy to use.” This product has been around a while, but has been shaped and moulded into something that is really useful.

What the judges loved was that it could be used on smaller areas of the body that are often overlooked.

“It will make a massive difference to patients’ lives,” said one judge.

“It is focused on the solution,” said another. “And that is why it is my number one in this category.”
