Perusing displays ranging from modular furniture and wayfinding signage to an earthquake-proof fastening system and seating, attendees at HEALTHCARE DESIGN.10 were asked to speak up on which one of the new, innovative design products featured in the show floor's Product Pavilion they thought was the best.

Voting for the First Annual Product Pavilion People's Choice Awards took place throughout the live HEALTHCARE DESIGN.10 Conference, held November 13-16, 2010, in Las Vegas. The Product Pavilion area only displayed products that were new to the industry within the last 24 months.

HEALTHCARE DESIGN.10 attendees voted for their favorite of the 14 products featured in the pavilion. More than 300 votes were submitted throughout the course of the four-day event. Read on for details on the winner and two runners up.

Congratulations to them all.

Product Name: SAM Patient Chair


The next level in patient care, rest, and rehabilitation. A seating system that responds to body motion to perform its multitudes of support features. Its self-adjusting movements (SAM) are facilitated by a new patented mechanism that allows the back to recline in excess of thirty degrees while the seat moves forward in synchronization. A single lever activates a pneumatic lift to provide variable seat heights. A special therapeutic permeable mesh back provides extra body support with two-way flex action, comfort and breathable, easy cleaning upholstery. Cantilevered arms allow plenty of leg space and quickly flip out of the way for easy access and egress. SAM brings innovation with a sleek slim line profile making it a perfect companion for tight quarters and compact spaces.
