As part of the Medical Technology Convention on 27 March in Erlangen, organized by senetics healthcare group GmbH & Co.

Rolf Bronner, Head of Medical Technology at Küfner, was delighted with the award: "We've invested a lot in the development of the rescue-iFil over recent months. Receiving the award for the most innovative product concept tells us that we are on the right track." Meanwhile, Küfner is already working on the development and launch of the rescue-iFil so that it can transform its award-winning idea into a successful product.
