The PlastForum journal presents its awards every year at Elmia Subcontractor under the theme of Plastovation Awards 2014. In the Composites category, Lindhe Xtend won with the following nomination:
Because a product has been produced which doesn’t just promote the use of composites, but also produces an enormous amount of benefit for the user. With its Xtend Foot, Lindhe Xtend has developed a prosthetic foot which is more mobile and stable and where, furthermore, the foot blade can be adapted to the underlying surface. This makes it a really innovative product, which will be of great benefit to many people, and which can make everyday life easier for its users.
Some seventy or so people from both the industry and nominated companies had gathered to hear which contributions would receive this year’s awards.
”The fact that plastic is a varied material that can be used and developed in many different ways becomes very clear when we work with Plastovationer. This year too we have seen a broad spectrum of products, for both industry and consumers. This is evidence of innovation that bodes well for the industry,” says Martin Dyberg, chief editor of Plastforum.
