Adding connectivity to a range of auto-injectors

Adding connectivity to a range of auto-injectors
Product Description

We developed a proof-of-concept connected module to fit inside the rear cap of Bespak by Recipharm’s existing auto-injector, along with an iOS application, cloud database and web portal. The demonstrator device and connected system showed the potential for incorporating sensing technology. Sensing would allow collection of valuable data and insight from users and encourage patient adherence by providing a considered and supportive user experience.

Our cross-functional team worked with the client to develop a connected demonstrator to allow the evaluation of functionality for different devices and use cases. Low-cost development technologies and prototyping techniques enabled the project to progress quickly without the need for significant investment in hardware and software development.

    Product Automatically tracking children's medication

    As a busy parent, managing a child's medication can be hard. Team Consulting integrated connectivity into a syringe to help parents keep track of their child’s medication through a smartphone app.

    Using a small, low-cost sensor, this connected syringe automatically tracks when and how much drug has been administered. The data is then uploaded to an app that allows parents to check their child’s dose history and symptoms through a simple user interface.
