Revolutionary LifePort Liver Transporter Triumphs: Crowned Winner of Fast Company’s 2023 Innovation by Design Award in the ‘Health’ Category!

Embracing over a decade of groundbreaking Innovation by Design, the spotlight of 2023 falls on exceptional endeavors from industry giants like Adobe, PepsiCo, and Canva, among others.

ITASCA, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– A resounding ovation for Organ Recovery Systems (ORS) as it proudly unveils the triumphant recognition of its LifePort Liver Transporter in the illustrious ‘Health’ category of Fast Company’s 2023 Innovation by Design Awards.

Glimmering in the pages of the September 2023 issue of Fast Company, these awards stand as a testament to the creators and corporations who are unraveling today’s most pressing conundrums while weaving the fabric of a more enlightened tomorrow. In its 12th year, this competition is an assembly of venerable multinational giants, nascent startups, and budding prodigies, making the Innovation by Design Award one of the planet’s most coveted design honors.

Behold the LifePort Liver Transporter (LLT), a treasure within the domain of medical ingenuity. This ingenious contrivance dances with the realm of precision-controlled hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP), enchantingly named to tantalize the curious. With the elegance of a waltz, HMP recreates the symphony of the circulatory system, serenading donated livers with a melodious stream of oxygenated, nutrient-rich preservation fluid in a chill embrace, ensuring these vital organs are primed for their second act – transplantation. The LLT performs this ballet from the donor’s bedside to the recipient’s theater of life-saving intervention, its grace underscored by clinical studies attesting to its seamlessness and robust portability.

But this is not just a waltz; it’s a miracle. The orchestration of oxygenated HMP has been found to be a conductor of better patient outcomes, potentially transmuting historically discarded livers into notes of hope on the transplant stage.

David Kravitz, the visionary maestro at ORS, eloquently articulates the gratitude that accompanies such an accolade, extending the spotlight beyond the award to the extraordinary narrative of organ donation and transplantation. “In the realm where tragedy and compassion intertwine, we journey with families and professionals alike to turn loss into life. Our innovations, like this award, honor the courage of donors and the tenacity of healthcare heroes who compose a life-saving symphony.”

The grand tale unfolds further. As Brendan Vaughan, the custodian of Fast Company’s editorial domain, aptly reminds us, amidst the clamor for AI, it is human imagination that persists as the heartbeat of innovation. The jurors for this year, a constellation of luminaries from diverse disciplines, lend their wisdom to assess these creations on the axis of originality, function, allure, sustainability, user intimacy, cultural influence, and commercial resonance.

As the curtain rises, winners, finalists, and those whose tales earn an honorable nod step into the lumelight online. The zenith of this crescendo finds a home in the pages of the August 29, 2023 issue of Fast Company, an enduring ovation to the harmonious cadence of ingenuity.
