Energy bundles within the smallest space: Injection systems

In the last years injection systems helped to facilitate the insulin therapy. Nowadays the majority of people with diabetes use an uncomplicated and discrete pen in order to take insulin regularly. Beside the modern design, functionality is in the first place. Our springs are not only used in the administration of medications but are also located in the cap of the insulin pen. For the daily routine it is very useful that the patient can see the date when the latest injection was placed via a digital display.

Also autoinjectors are on the move because they can be handled easily and reduce the fear of people who are afraid of needles. Using an autoinjector is e.g. also easily possible with only one hand. In case of an anaphylactic shock (=life-threatening overreaction of the immune system) it is decisive to act quickly and correctly. Autoinjectors also give the opportunity to non-trained persons to inject the dose. The structure of the autoinjector is similar to a syringe but most of the time the injection needle is invisible in the inside of the injector. When the dose is required, the autoinjector is pressed on the chosen part of the body, the pre-stressed spring is released at the touch of a button and presses via a piston the appropriate medication (e.g. adrenalin or atropine) through the injection needle into the body.
