STOCKHOLM – Elekta (EKTA-B.ST) Esprit, a high precision stereotactic radiosurgery device, used to treat targets in the brain, such as tumors, vascular malformations, or functional disorders, has been awarded the Red Dot Award for product design in the medical devices and technology design category. By combining form and function in an exquisite manner, Elekta Esprit has received an internationally renowned winner label of the highest reputation.
According to the Red Dot organization, its award represents global recognition of belonging to the best in design and business and the Red Dot Design Award competition has been held since 1955.
