Enable Injections – OCTOBER 05, 2015 – Enable Injections, the developer and manufacturer of a new wearable injector technology platform that allows patients to comfortably and easily self-administer large volume drugs subcutaneously, today announced two major technology advances:
- An Enable Wearable Injector with Bluetooth connectivity for compliance monitoring and big data capture with a mobile app
- Market leading volume capabilities: The Enable Injector is being developed to comfortably deliver up to 50 mL doses of high volume and/or viscous biologics subcutaneously
“The Enable high volume wearable injectors are engineered with the goal of increasing compliance with drug regimens by making it so easy and convenient that patients will take their prescribed biologics regularly, even the largest doses,” said Enable Injections CEO Michael D. Hooven.
The Enable Injector now with Bluetooth connectivity for compliance monitoring and big data capture with a mobile app, plus market leading volume capabilities that enable patients to comfortably and easily deliver up to 50 mL doses of biologics subcutaneously, at home or work, while free to ambulate. And with automatic lyophilization, there is no longer a need for pharmaceutical companies to spend time on additional formulation to achieve low volumes, saving time and costs.
“The benefit for Bio-Pharma companies is they can get their product into clinical evaluation quicker as there is no need to spend time on additional formulation to achieve low volumes,” he added. “In addition, now pharmaceutical companies, physicians and patients can each have the tracking data they need by using a mobile app or Bluetooth connected device. The ultimate goal is that the new drug delivery technology will not only benefit patients by improving their health outcomes, but also lower costs by streamlining drug development and replacing costly hospital-based infusions.”
The announcement was made at the Partnership Opportunities in Drug Delivery (PODD) meeting in Boston, October 5-6, 2015.
