Bang & Olufsen Medicom focuses on four main areas of drug delivery device development, which employ innovative strategies to help with patient compliance issues:
Inhalation: The company makes inhalers with single dose counters called the - Assist Actuated InhalerTM - which give more power back to the patient on managing much medication remains in their canister and helps them track the doses they need to take regularly.
Tablet Reminders: The company created a series of tablet reminder devices called the Helping HandTM - that remind patients about the tablets they need to take. The tablet reminder is equipped with electronic functions that once activated, can remind the user to take their medication and provides feedback on how well they have kept to their medication regime.
Injection pen cap: The company also developed an intelligent pen cap that fits with a wide range of injection pens. With this product the user can track the injection doses to be taken and again get feedback on their compliance rate for the longer term.
Diagnostic devices: In addition, Bang & Olufsen Medicom has partnered with 3M to create ambient-noise reducing electronic stethoscopes that allow for greater amplification of difficult-to-hear heart and lung sounds.
