Each year, a panel of jurors comprised of designers, engineers, and clinicians awards best-in-show, bronze, silver, and gold honors to the most innovative products at the Medical Design Excellence Awards.
At this year’s Medtech Design Summit, Coapt’s Complete Control System Gen2 was named the MDEA’s Silver Winner in the Rehabilitation and Assistive-Technology category. The wide-ranging group of nominees included products such as wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, hearing aids, and prosthetic devices.
“It is an honor to be named the Silver Winner at this year’s Medical Device Excellence Awards,” said Blair Lock, founder and CEO of Coapt. “To be recognized as a leader in medical devices and human-machine interfacing, not just in the O&P field, is a testament to the hard work our entire team has contributed to our product.”

Coapt’s second-generation (Gen2) leverages machine learning and artificial intelligence to provide a human-bionic interface that learns and adapts to users’ unique muscle patterns and assists amputees by optimizing bionic limb control with automated feedback and instruction.
