Wearable Micro-Infusion Pump
Gerresheimer Subsidiary Developed Micro-Infusion Pump
Developed specially by Sensile Medical for Ever Pharma under the brand name D-mine, the wearable micro-infusion pump recently received European CE certification and has already been launched in several European countries. The compact, patient-friendly infusion pump is used for the continuous subcutaneous administration of drugs to treat Parkinson’s disease. The first micro pump from Gerresheimer subsidiary Sensile Medical, Olten, Switzerland, to be available on the market, it gives Parkinson’s patients greater independence in their day-to-day lives.
The D-mine pump is used to administer apomorphine in the advanced stages of Parkinson’s treatment. According to the company, simple handling, safety, and ease of use were the main aims behind the development. The compact design is down to Sensile Medical’s special micro-rotation pump technology and is straightforward to use thanks to an intuitive menu interface.
Ease of Use
Parkinson’s patients often have difficulty moving and appreciate the pump’s ease of use, such as the automatic dosing function, the lack of complicated flow rate calculations, and the intuitive menu system. Its integrated choice of languages and the full-text display on its color screen make it easier to learn the ropes, while modern technologies such as data storage and individually adjustable basal rates support better treatment management. The D-mine pump comes with a specially designed charging station and does not need any conventional batteries.
