Oxford-based Owen Mumford has launched Ateria SafeControl, its
next generation of safety pen needles. Described as an active safety
pen needle for healthcare professionals who use injection pens to
administer medication, or people who self-inject. it is designed to
protect users from needlestick injuries (NSIs) while enabling them to
keep control of the overall injection process. Ateria SafeControl features
and benefits include a visible needle,, an innovative manual push tab
for one-handed activation of the safety mechanism, and dual visible
and audible safety indicators for confirmation the safety mechanism
is activated. In addition, a safety guard covers the needle to prevent
needlestick injuries after injection. It is compatible with all major brands
of injection pens. It is now available as a prescribed product.
SAFE CONTROL The UK's first basal insulin advisor with integrated blood glucose meter for people with Type
2 diabetes who are on once daily basal insulin is now available from Agamatrix. Designed to
assist in the self-adjustment of basal insulin dosing, the JAZZ DoseCoach could help people
who struggle with the complexities of basal insulin management and maintaining desired
blood glucose levels.
The device provides an individualised suggested basal insulin dose through a feature
called Dose Helper. Once your HCP has determined the starting dose, the Dose Helper
suggests gradual adjustments (every three days) to your daily insulin dose until your fasting
blood glucose readings are within your target range.
Dose Helper calculates dose adjustments using your most recent fasting blood glucose
readings and insulin doses. The JAZZ DoseCoach also incorporates built-in safety and
verification rules for the Dose Helper function. Clinically validated through the Automatix
study, JAZZ DoseCoach is proven to reduce HbA1c.
