Insight Design Team’s Skintact wins Red Dot Concept Award!

Red Dot awardInsight is pleased to announce that we have won a Red Dot Award: Design Concept 2017. This year’s entry, Skintact, creates a complete system to control and heal mild to severe eczema using medicated patches and light therapy.

Designed by Senior Designer Alisa Rantanen, Industrial Designers Pachara Kangchirdsri and Laura Ott, and Senior Design Manager Tony Belton, this concept is a decidedly simple solution that explores what wearable design could look like in healthcare.

“This concept was really borne out of personal frustration with caring for sensitive skin. The rest of the team was on board, making this the perfect opportunity to develop a simple solution for an enduring issue.”

More about Skintact:

30% of the US population suffers from eczema, yet there is no cure. Skintact is a complete system to control and heal mild to severe eczema using medicated patches and light therapy. These long-wear patches are modular and can be applied in a strip or separated to cover large and small areas alike. Patches are delivered in tape-like rolls and stored in a refillable dispenser as an elegant, efficient, and mess-free solution.

Skintact protects skin, promotes healing, and prevents scratching, all while concealing affected areas. This concept is a decidedly simple solution that explores what wearable design could look like in healthcare.
