What is ist?

"Medicine pen" is a new way to take medication. The medicine is on the carrier gelatin, which is sprayed on the skin. The absorption time is controlled by an ultrasound patch, which simultaneously remains on the skin surface.

What is the Topic?

Sometime have we to go to the doctor and take medication. But it is easily for us to forget when, how and how much of the medication we should take. The most common reasons for a deterioration of our health are that we use the medicine not on time and not take the right medicine. Is there a new way for people to remember how to take the medicine, or through new technologies and materials change the way to take medication?

Why does it look like this?

For patients without arms, there is a groove at the end of the pen, through it the patient can bite the pen with his teeth. The general patient can hold the small depression in the middle with your fingers so that the medicine pen is easy to press.

What is special?

The medicine is on the carrier gelatin, which is sprayed on the skin. The absorption time is controlled by an ultrasound patch, which simultaneously remains on the skin surface. Depending on how many times a day you need the medicine, you press for one dose each time, so the drug sticks to the surface of the skin and waits for the exposure time. When the pen tip is attached to the skin with ultrasound patches, the pen will automatically indicate how often the medication needs to be sprayed. In the evening, the drug for the next day in the Advance be sprayed on the skin. When the reminder time is set, the ultrasound patch will vibrate until it is sucked back onto the medication pen to prevent forgetting to take medicine.

What is new?

A special ultrasound transmission enables the skin pores to be widened and enlarged so that drups with a high molecular weight can be transported through the sweat pores to the capillaries and then through the capillaries into the blood stream. The new portable ultrasound patch offers non-invasive monitoring of the body at a depth of 4cm under the skin and thus helps to detect problems such as high blood pressure earlier and more accurately.
