Product Design 2018: Beurer presented with a Red Dot Award

reddot Award 2018

The jury, made up of around 40 international design experts, have decided: after evaluating thousands of products submitted from a total of 59 countries, three Beurer devices have stood out. Due to their excellent design, the HC 30 hair dryer, the IH 60 nebuliser and the Velvet Skin Pro IPL device have been awarded the Red Dot Award, a globally renowned quality seal for design and innovation.


The HC 30 hair dryer – functional and stylish

The HC 30 not only ensures great looking hair, but it also makes for an eye-catching feature in the bathroom. The stylish matt black of the soft-touch surface is interspersed with high-quality chrome accents.

The IH 60 inhalation device – small, light and extremely quiet

Whereas traditional compressed-air nebulisers are often loud, particular attention was not only paid to form and function, but also to volume and weight during the development of the IH 60. The result is a very small, lightweight device that operates extremely quietly.

The IPL Velvet Skin Pro – a professional treatment for silky smooth skin

Smooth, supple skin for longer – the professional IPL device now easily makes this a reality at home. The IPL Velvet Skin Pro works with state-of-the-art light technology used by dermatologists and beauty salons for professional hair removal. In addition to clean, elegant lines, the product boasts safe operation, which can also be supported by the "beurer MyIPL" app.

Innovations to be proud of

For the seventh time in a row, in 2017 Beurer has been named the "Most Innovative Brand of the Year" by the Plus X Award. The participants who managed to win the most Plus X quality seals in their product group were honoured with this most prestigious award. This year, Beurer was also honoured as the "Best design brand" for the fourth time in a row. This special award is only awarded to one company per year and product group.

In February, a total of ten Beurer products were awarded the Plus X quality seal in the categories "Quality", "Design", "Ease of Use", "Innovation" and "Functionality". This gave the Ulm-based health expert enough seals to once again be named "Most Innovative Brand of the Year" in the "Health & Personal Care" product group. In the same product group, Beurer was also able to bring the award “Best design brand” back to Ulm as it was awarded multiple “Design” seals.

"We are delighted to have won this award.

Beurer Fascia-ReleaZer® at top-class sports

Justin Gatlin wins the gold medal in the 100m sprint at the 2017 World Championship versus sport legend Usain Bolt. Despite all expectations, Usain Bolt was unable to defeat Justin Gatlin (gold) and Christian Coleman (silver) in what was his last dramatic run at the end of his career.

How can you prepare your fascia during the training phase for such an exceptional performance and keep them resilient for the duration of a tournament? Many world athletes like Justin Gatlin and Canadian Aaron Brown use the Beurer Fascia-ReleaZer® for this purpose.

Gatlin & Brown using Beurer FasciaReleaZer

Brown, who won the bronze medal in the 4x100m relay at the 2016 Summer Olympics says: "Anytime I have aches in my leg, I use the fascia release stick because I love the way my body responds to the tool. It has become a staple in my rehabilitation arsenal and I bring it with me all around the world to my races."

With its unique and new method of vibro-shearing, the Fascia-ReleaZer® helps to loosen fascia bonding and regenerates the muscle tissue. Scientific studies substantiate the fact, that the perfusion significantly improves the flexibility and agility.

Christopher Gordon is the inventor of the Fascia-ReleaZer® and developed this tool together with Beurer. He is the owner of the center of integrative therapy (CIT) in Stuttgart, Germany and has used his 30 years of expertise to develop the interdisciplinary Fascia Therapy (IFT). The CIT offers daily advanced training about the Fascia-ReleaZer®, educates trainers and provides skill enhancement programs for the IFT method
