GEROPHARM to release a new reusable pen injector. The medical device has already been registered and will soon be delivered to several regions of Russia.
To date, pen injectors are among the most state-of-the-art devices for insulin injections. This is due to the fact that the form is easy to use and transport thanks to its functionality and compactness.
Creating a reusable pen injector, GEROPHARM pursued the goal to take care of the patients – it was necessary to make a pen-injector maximally convenient for injection of the medicinal product. The pen was developed in conjunction with the Ypsomed Company (Switzerland).
The new pen-injector is equipped with a mechanism for easy and convenient drug administration. The device is distinguished by an easy-to-use dose setting using the rotational movement, dose adjustment (where necessary) and activation using the start button. An important design feature is the ease of cartridge replacement, an enlarged indicator window for visually impaired patients, as well as tactile and audible feedback when setting, adjusting and administering a dose. The indicator data reflect the remaining volume of the drug, which allows to set the dose correctly up to the last unit.
GEROPHARM has been engaged in the industrial production of insulin since 2014. Rinsulin® R and Rinsulin® NPH are available in various forms of presentation – bottles, cartridges, disposable pen injectors. Currently, reusable pen injectors are delivered free of charge to the regions where GEROPHARM insulins are purchased in cartridges.
