    I’d like to know how did you measure “innovative” properties of a medical device? What was the standard for measurement? Your list, looks very subjective and misleading.

      Thanks for the comment, Balint. The list includes the 11 medical technology nominees for the 11th Annual Prix Galien USA Award from the Galien Foundation. They said the nominees were chosen by a judging committee of “13 renowned leaders from the biomedical industry and academia, including four Nobel Laureates.” So I guess if there was any subjectivity on their part, it was Nobel Laureate–level subjectivity.

      • Agree with Franko – for example, a hyaluronic acid lip filler is really not new in any way.

          Thanks for the comment, Karin. So you think the Prix Galien USA Awards aren’t highlighting innovation the way they should?
