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. The 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.
