  • Publication number: 20180193562
    Abstract: A drug delivery device includes a casing and a storage container with a dose delivery member, at least a portion of which extends through an opening in the casing. A guard is movable relative to the casing between extended and retracted positions. The guard surrounds the extended portion of the dose delivery member in the extended position, and exposes the extended portion in the retracted position. An interference arrangement is included for providing selected threshold of resistance to movement of the guard from the extended position to the retracted position during insertion of the dose delivery member into body tissue. The arrangement has first and second members engaging one another to retain the guard in the extended position. The first or second member can move if the selected threshold of resistance is exceeded to allow the members to slide and allow the guard to move into the retracted position.

  • Publication number: 20170368260
    Abstract: A drug delivery device includes a container for storing a drug, the container having a stopper for expelling the drug; an injection drive comprising an energy source for directly or indirectly acting on the stopper to expel the drug; a sensor for detecting contact between the drug delivery device and a body of a patient; and a user interface (UI) for activating or causing the activation of the injection drive. The device is operative for drawing attention to the UI, if the sensor detects contact between the drug delivery device and the body of the patient, to thereby indicate that the injection drive is ready to be activated, which activation is the next step in the drug administration process.

  • Publication number: 20170182253
    Abstract: An injection device, method, and system for drug delivery includes a primary container for storing a drug, the container having a stopper movably disposed in the container for expelling the drug, an injection drive mechanism comprising a plunger for acting on the stopper and an energy source for exerting a force on the plunger to cause the plunger to act on the stopper to expel the drug, the force causing the plunger to accelerate to a velocity prior to acting on the stopper, and a damping mechanism for reducing the velocity of the plunger prior to acting on the stopper. The damping mechanism can include a dashpot or an energy absorbing material associated with the plunger. Alternatively or additionally, the damping mechanisms can include absorbing material disposed between support members of an outer casing of the injection device and the primary container.

  • Publication number: 20170124285
    Abstract: Devices and methods are disclosed for assisting a user of a drug delivery device with an application executing on a mobile computing device. The mobile computing device may receive information from the drug delivery device related to its condition and/or operation and subsequently select an informational and/or instructional prompt to be displayed to the user based on the received information. The mobile computing device may also generate a display in the application including the selected informational prompt and/or the instructional prompt. Accordingly, the user of the drug delivery device can be guided through the drug delivery process in real time, thereby reducing the likelihood of improper or incomplete use of the drug delivery device.

  • Publication number: 20170106146
    Abstract: An injection device, method, and system for drug delivery includes a container for storing a drug, the container having a stopper movably disposed in the container for expelling the drug; an injection drive mechanism having a plunger for acting on the stopper and an energy source having a first selected potential energy for exerting a force on the plunger to cause the plunger to act on the stopper to expel the drug; and a plunger loading mechanism for substantially preventing the plunger from accelerating to a predetermined velocity before it acts on the stopper. The plunger loading mechanism may be a spring having a second selected potential energy for reducing or eliminating a distance between the plunger and the stopper, prior to the plunger accelerating to the velocity. The second selected potential energy of the spring may be less than the first selected potential energy of the energy source.

  • Publication number: 20170103186
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed herein for supporting a patient's use of a drug delivery device. The patient may be associated with a support group via, for example, a social networking service for the purpose of increasing the likelihood that the patient will comply with a treatment regimen. Based on data representative of a condition and/or operational state of the drug delivery device, it may be determined whether the patient is compliant with the treatment regimen. If the patient is not compliant, the systems and method disclosed herein may transmit a communication to the support group requesting the support group to counsel the patient about the treatment regimen. The counseling may take the form of words of encouragement, coaching, suggestions, reminders, and/or any other communication likely to urge the patient to comply with the treatment regimen.
