injection devices for at-risk populations


Published February 2017  ·  Report No. JRP338K17 · Price US $1,850


The aging global population and special-needs patients are two patient groups that represent a growing healthcare segment. Recognizing this, a small but growing number of pharmaceutical sector participants and their product development partners have created injection devices that address several of the feature and functional needs of at-risk patients. Responding to these market forces, drug developers and their device partners are increasing their emphasis on device features and functionality, attempting to create injectable products that are more user-friendly while promoting patient adherence and safety. These features address a wide spectrum of device attributes, including form factor, device-patient interaction, security and safety, dosing, activation, off-device communication, and drug formulation factors.
