The Preemie Sensor human milk analyser unique and simplistic design puts this medical device into a category of its own!

Online PR News – 04-February-2021 – London, United Kingdom – We are pleased to announce that Preemie Sensor has received Gold and Silver awards for its beautiful, ergonomically friendly design from the 14th Annual Edition of the International Design Awards (IDA) within the Children's Product Category. A Gold prize winner in the Pregnancy and Maternity and a Silver prize winner in the Health and Baby Care.

“When we were first approached to design a medical device that would analyse breast milk, we challenged ourselves to do something different. We wanted to create something extraordinary that went beyond complicated medical interfaces typically seen in healthcare. This is why we think the colour, size, texture and simplicity in design resonates not only with the IDA Jury but with professionals within the industry as well.” - Massimiliano Datti and Alessandro Spalletta, Preemie Industrial Design Team -

This year IDA received thousands of submissions from over 80 countries in 5 primary design categories: Architecture, Interior Design, Graphic Design, Product Design, and Fashion Design. The international Jury evaluated the entries and sought out designs beyond the ordinary, seeking those that reflected the revolutionary leading the way into the future.

"The IDA seeks out truly visionary designers showcasing creativity and innovation. As the world struggled with an unprecedented challenge in 2020, the IDA received a record number of outstanding entries which presented the Jury with an enormous task in selecting the winners," commented Jill Grinda, VP Marketing and Business Development as stated in the IDA press release.

Receipt of this internationally celebrated award comes within months of the Preemie Sensor garnering the prestigious German Design Award in the category of Medical, Rehabilitation and Healthcare.

"Throughout the development of the Preemie sensor, we wanted to keep the functionality and configuration as user friendly as possible. Its simplistic design makes it easy to use for NICUs and Human Milk Banks professionals.” Remarked Isabel Correa, CEO and Founder of Tellspec LTD. "There is nothing else like it on the market; the Preemie system is the first complete platform for the management of preterm feeding. We are honoured by the recognition given to us by the IDA Jury"
