Since 1987, the Edison Awards™ have recognized and honored some of the most innovative new products, services and business leaders in the world. The Awards are named after Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931) whose extraordinary new product and market development methods garnered him 1,093 U.S. patents and made him a household name across the world. The Edison Awards symbolize the persistence and excellence personified by Thomas Edison, while also strengthening the human drive for innovation, creativity and ingenuity.
The Edison Awards™ are among the most prestigious accolades honoring excellence in new product and service development, marketing, human-centered design and innovation. Unique to the world of award programs, the Edison Awards™ are focused on the innovators as much as the innovations. Award winners represent "game changing" products, services and excellence and leadership in innovation around four criteria: Concept, Value, Delivery and Impact. An Edison Award represents significant value to the award winner and to the cause of innovation.
In the Dental Tools catergory, NSK won gold for the Ti-Max Z45L. The handpiece is the worlds first 45 degree electric attachment handpiece. It features a unique, two-way water spray mode. A jet spray option helps prevent subcutaneous emphysema in surgical procedures and a mist spray option effectively cools the bur making it suitable for both surgical and traditional procedures with difficult access.
