  • Patent number: 10994082
    Abstract: An inhaler for delivery of a medicament by inhalation is disclosed. The inhaler comprises a dispensing mechanism, the dispensing mechanism being configured to dispense a dose of medicament on actuation. The inhaler further comprises a dose counting mechanism comprising a counter and a translating member. The translating member comprises a pawl. The counter comprises a first count wheel, a second count wheel and an intermediate wheel engaged with the second count wheel and in selective engagement with the first count wheel. When the inhaler is fired to dispense a dose of medicament, the dispensing mechanism moves the translating member in a substantially linear direction. The pawl thus rotates the first count wheel, and as the first count wheel rotates, the intermediate wheel is selectively engaged thereby selectively rotating the second count wheel to count the doses of the inhaler.

  • Publication number: 20190282762
    Abstract: An injection device with a dose delivering mechanism being adapted to provide a non-visual, e.g. audible and/or tactile, feedback signal when a set dose has been at least substantially injected. A first and a second part of the injection device are adapted to perform a relative rotational movement with respect to each other. The relative rotational movement causes at least two parts of the injection device to abut or engage, and this abutment or engagement causes the non-visual feedback signal to be generated. A very distinct and precise feedback is provided as compared to prior art axial solutions because the generation of the feedback signal is initiated by the relative rotational movement. Feedback signal may be generated by a change in a rotational velocity of at least one part, e.g. by changing the pitch of a threaded portion or by engaging a non-rotating part and a rotating part, thereby causing the non-rotating part to start rotating.

  • Patent number: 9956351
    Abstract: A dose delivery device is disclosed wherein a dose can be set by rotating a dose setting member, whereby a push button (4) is elevated from one end of the device a distance proportional to the set dose from a position fixed relative to the housing, and wherein the set dose can then be injected by pressing the push button back to its non-elevated position, through which motion a piston rod will move approximately the same distance. The invention provides a method of forcing a numbered scale drum to rotate both during dose setting and injection to allow the user to read the remaining dose at any time during setting and injecting a dose.

  • Patent number: 9775953
    Abstract: A mechanism for preventing setting of a dose, which exceeds the amount of a medicament in a reservoir in an injection device. The device can contain a threaded piston rod, a limiter and a driver. The three elements can be arranged such that during dose setting, the limiter is moved towards an end-of-content position, wherein dose setting is limited. The invention contains an accumulative and a non-accumulative embodiment. The invention further relates to a mechanism for preventing ejection of a dose exceeding the set dose.

  • Patent number: 9669168
    Abstract: A dose setting mechanism for an injection device having a rotatably operated dose setting member, a presetting member being operable to limit the maximum dose settable by the dose setting member, and a first stopping member is operatively connected to the presetting member where the position of the first stopping member indicates the preset maximum dose. The first stopping member is adapted to rotatably engage with a second stopping member when the preset maximum dose has been set, thereby preventing setting of a further dose. The first and/or the second stopping member is/are movable along with the dose setting member, the first and second stopping members thereby being moved into engagement when a dose is set. Thereby a dose can be preset and the preset dose can easily be repeatedly set while ensuring an accurate dosage. The contemplated device can aid persons being visually impaired or having poor dexterity in setting a correct and accurate dose.

  • Publication number: 20170095613
    Abstract: An injection device for injecting a medicament includes a housing, a dose setting member (20) movable to set a dose to be injected, and a signal part (7). The signal part rotates from a first rotational position to a second rotational position to increase loading on a spring or spring arm when a dose is set due to rotation of the dose setting member. An internal pressure builds up in the injection device during injection which results in the signal part being captured in the second rotational position between first and second internal parts of the injection device. After the internal pressure dissipates by a sufficient amount during injection, the signal part rotates under the urging of the loaded spring from the second rotational position back to the first rotational position. A portion of the signal part moves into contact with a surface when the signal part reaches the first rotational position to produce tactile or audible feedback indicating that an end of dose condition has been reached.
