A few hours after it was announced that the French company MedActiv was a double winner at the Taipei Invention Fair, the progressive company received a Leading Innovation Award from the IIPNF (International Intellectual Property Network Forum).

The coveted prize was awarded to MedActiv for the development of the iFridge and iTube, its innovative solutions for the safe transport of medications. Uwe DIEGEL, president of MedActiv, was informed of the award only two hours after collecting two top awards for the same products at the Taipei Invention Fair on Saturday October 2nd 2010.

The iFridge is a portable refrigerator designed for insulin and any other medication that needs to be maintained at a fresh and constant temperature. The iTube is a brushed steel insulated vacuum flask designed to carry an insulin pen.

Uwe and Olaf DIEGEL developed the iFridge and iTube after spotting a gap in the market for new transport solutions for thermo-sensitive medications. “The awarding of the 2010 Leading Innovation Award to MedActiv confirms that we are going in the right direction. In 2003, when we invented the world’s first truly portable fridge, we had not yet realized the impact our invention would have on the lives of millions of people worldwide who are effectively prisoners of their diseases. Today, I am proud to say that with the iFridge we can transport just about any medication safely, ranging from insulin to procreation agents. In France alone, there are over a million people with a lifestyle that is hampered by their fragile medication. To these people, we offer freedom of movement and the freedom to better manage their health, knowing that their medication is always kept at exactly the right temperature”, says Uwe DIEGEL, president of MedActiv.

The IIPNF is an international organization that aims to unite invention societies around the world by sharing ideas, brainstorming and appreciating the inventors for their creativity and hard work. Every year, the IIPNF honors selected inventors for their drive for excellence and the uniqueness of their vision.
