insulin pen needles






hese pen needles were

award-winnning for leading

medical device manufacturer

Owen Mumford. The Product

Design competition has

existed since 1954. Its award, the Red

Dot, is an internationally recognised

quality seal.

The needs of insulin pen users, along

with adapting to healthcare concerns,

were at the centre of its medical device

design. Compliance (taking injections

as agreed with medical advisors) and

ease of use are basic to diabetics using

pen needles. By putting the end-user at

the heart of the design, Owen Mumford

aimed to make a difference to both

patients and healthcare professionals and

as a result the Unifine Pentips now have

a unique integrated disposal chamber

designed to encourage more frequent

needle changes.

Owen Mumford's Unifine Pentips Plus

Owen Mumford won a Red Dot award

within the Product Design category which

saw a total of 4,928 entries from 56

countries, judged by a panel consisting of

respected design professors, designers

and specialist journalists.

Solutions for living

Jarl Severn, CEO of Owen Mumford,

commented, "We are both delighted and

immensely proud to have been chosen for

such a world renowned award for design.

We have always focused on designing

the next 'big idea' and have invested

significantly in our R&D capabilities to

support this. Our mission is to provide

solutions that will exceed expectations,

encourage adherence and improve

quality of life; the Unifine Pentips Plus pen

needle is a great demonstration of this,

right from initial design concept through

to manufacture."

Richard Walker, Global Product

Manager for Drug Delivery Products

for Owen Mumford, added, "The initial

concept behind Unifine Pentips Plus

was to make the injection process as

easy and comfortable for the end-user

as possible, which plays an integral part

in encouraging good self-management

practices. The research and design

team went back to the drawing board to

create a completely new solution for the

long established, standard insulin pen

needle market sector. Unifine Pentips

Plus is proven to encourage better needle

change behaviour. For our design to be

recognised by the judging panel at Red

Dot, is great news."

The Unfine Pentips Plus pen needle is

available in a range of lengths from 4mm

32G to 12mm 29G.
