Multiple Award-Winning Designs

PDR’s customer-focused approach emphasises control and robust, reliable solutions throughout.

From designing wearables to creating mind-blowing prosthetics, PDR International Centre for Design and Research offers specialised, award-winning, design and development engineering.

PDR has its own unique approach, which combines the latest in high-quality research activity and knowledge with world-renowned consultancy practice.

With extensive design, research, user insight, usability, prototyping and workshop facilities in-house, PDR brings together the latest technologies and facilities to create an unparalleled capability and world-leading results for the many companies and organisations it works with.


For over 60 years, the iF DESIGN AWARD has been recognised the world over as a label of design excellence and the iF logo is an internationally established symbol which is used to identify outstanding achievements in design.

An international high-profile jury assessed more than 5,000 entries from 53 countries in order to determine who would receive this coveted seal of excellence in 2016 and the team at PDR are proud that three of its entries received an iF DESIGN AWARD 2016.

The René Antenatal Monitor, which was entered in the Professional Concept discipline, Timesco’s Callisto, a single-use laryngoscope system, and Acticheck’s Assure, the world’s first fit and forget smartband, both entered in the Product discipline, received the renowned iF label.

On receiving the confirmation, Commercial Director, Jarred Evans, said,

"It's fantastic news and something we are very proud of here at PDR. We are only interested in the major awards, blind judged to the very highest global standards. Three more iF Design Awards this year adds to our tally of over 20 major international design awards in the last ten years which is testimony not just to the creativity and quality of the work we do but also to the consistently high standards we maintain."
