  • Patent number: 10737872
    Abstract: A dispensing mechanism dispenses even doses of a substance, and comprises a base, a leverable surface, a stepper mechanism; and a space for an application substance. The levered surface is hinged at one end or is collapsible and is pressed downwards towards the base to squeeze the space to force the substance out of the cartridge. The stepper mechanism is located at the far end of the leverable surface to halt pressing at intervals corresponding to even doses of the substance. A carrier for a cartridge incorporating the dispensing mechanism comprises a housing which may be pressed to squeeze the cartridge and dispense the substance, an insertion opening through which the dispensing cartridge is inserted and a dispensing opening which lines up with a spout on the cartridge and through which the liquid is dispensed. The carrier may be attached to the wrist or to bicycle handlebars and the like.

  • Patent number: 9629990
    Abstract: A surgical preparation applicator device has a pre-loaded container of surgical preparation liquid, the container having a front closure at its front end. The container is received in an applicator body which includes a tubular receiving structure, movable from an initial position to an open position whereby a cutter of the applicator body opens the front closure to allow liquid to flow forwardly to an applicator pad. The applicator body defines a flow path between the container and the applicator pad. The container has separate chambers containing different component liquids of the surgical preparation liquid. The chambers are separated by an internal wall and being side-by-side, each having a front opening at the front end of the container with the front closure closing off both front openings.

  • Publication number: 20150126944
    Abstract: The present invention comprises a system for applying small quantities of antiseptic such as a solution of chlorhexidine to a human patient. The system includes a container of 10-50 mL having an opening proximate the top end of the container and a closed end at the bottom. A dispenser for dispensing 0.05 to 0.2 mL of antiseptic through an opening of 0.8 to 4.8 mm is provided. A reclosable cap is further provided for sealing the top end of the container and retaining the antiseptic in the container. In a preferred embodiment, the dispenser comprises a roller ball of 1-5 mm which is rotatably mounted in the opening of the container, with a peripheral seal maintained around the opening for sealing the edges of the roller ball while allowing rotation thereof within the opening. This allows the antiseptic to remain on the ball so that the antiseptic may be dispensed to the patient in limited quantities without dripping from the dispenser.

The support structure is adapted for supporting a collapsible container having a connector end and a closed end. The support structure includes a liquid passage adapted for fluid communication with the collapsible container for selectively discharging the liquid. The cartridge includes an actuator selectively movable from a first position to the second position via the operatively connected drive unit. At least a portion of the actuator moves toward the connector end when moving from the first position to the second position. The actuator is adapted for gradually compressing the collapsible container from the closed end toward the connector end in order to discharge liquid droplets.

  • Patent number: 8690025
    Abstract: A dispensing container according to the invention includes a container body having a rod-like shape. The dispensing container is therefore compact and the user can hold the dispensing container as if the user holds a pen and use the thumb, the index finger, and any other finger to apply pressure to the dispensing container so as to dispense a drug solution. A heat insulating grip is attached to the outer circumferential surface of the container body, whereby heat originating from the body temperature of a finger of the user will not be transferred to the drug solution or volatilize it. No excessive dispensing that is not intended by the user will therefore occur. Since the container body is thin and hence unlikely crashed, the user can make adjustment of the pressure applied by the thumb, the index finger, and any other finger to readily extract a single droplet.

  • Publication number: 20140046273
    Abstract: The invention provides a system and method for delivering antibiotic powder to a surgical wound that reduces the likelihood of contamination. A pre-packaged, sterile antibiotic powder delivery system comprises a container; a measured dosage of an antibiotic powder disposed within the container; and a sieve top attached to the top of the container, wherein the container and sieve top are sealed as a unit in a sterile packaging. To use the delivery system in the sterile surgery or operating room environment, the delivery system is removed from the sterile packaging. The delivery system is shaken over the surgical wound for a reasonable amount of time to cover the entire wound, avoid surgeon fatigue at the end of surgery, and avoid prolonging the total time the wound is open.

  • Publication number: 20130338610
    Abstract: The invention relates to an application system for the transepidermal surface administration of medications, said system comprising a container (1) accommodating a sprayable, active agent-containing composition, a propellant gas source (3) for pressurized gas consisting of at least 25% v/v of oxygen, and a spraying device (2), wherein container (1), propellant gas source (3), and spraying device (2) are flow-connected with each other in such a manner that the propellant gas atomizes the sprayable composition and, when the spraying device (2) is actuated, forces it out of the spraying device (2), with the composition being forced out of the spraying device (2) in the form of a conical spray jet at an exit velocity of ?100 m/s. With the help of the inventive application system active agents can be effectively administered via the skin without causing injury to the skin. As a result of the high exit velocity the penetration rate is especially favorable even when larger molecules are introduced.
