HazmatID Elite Named Runner-up by Core77

Core77 has honored the Smiths Detection HazmatID Elite with a Professional Runner-up nod in its Equipment category.

Bresslergroup designed the user interface and interactive components of the HazmatID Elite, a handheld chemical detection device used by first responders.┬áThe biggest design challenge was developing physical and digital interfaces to be easily manipulated by users wearing bulky gloves. Core77’s judges called it “a really nice design solution for a difficult situation.”

Bresslergroup, along with its client Smiths Detection, has been recognized multiple times in 2013 for the HazmatID Elite. The device also won a Design Gold from Appliance Design and a Bronze IDEA from the IDSA.
