How everyone wins when patient compliance is achieved

What do patients need so they like to use the devices? A suitable lightweight device is one that is reliable and most of all safe and simple to use. Whether at home or at work, the solution must accurately dispense the right amount of drug at the right location at the right time.

3 key factors to consider for material selection

Material selection is critical for medical device designs. This includes drug delivery – whether the device is implantable or not. There are in fact quite a few materials available on the market that are successfully used in drug delivery devices and selecting the right materials can be a bigger challenge than originally thought.

How implantable electronic medical devices can help improve patient outcomes and lower treatment costs

Implantable or wearable drug delivery devices such as insulin pumps, used in the treatment of diabetes, could make a major contribution to the improvement of medication adherence. The current trend for these devices is to become less invasive, with smaller dimensions and parts miniaturised to precise tolerances.
