Noble this week launched its connected device platform, AdhereIT, to provide people that use auto-injectors with real-time feedback regarding their injection.
Users can attach the AdhereIT system to an auto-injector training device or a commercial product, Noble reported. The platform can detect when the auto-injector makes contact with a user’s skin and the time when an injection starts and ends.
AdhereIT also sends notifications via an app to remind users to practice their injections or when it’s time for them to use their prescribed devices. The system wirelessly transmits real-time feedback to the user, helping them to identify potential administration errors.
AdhereIT can be adapted to an array of commercial auto-injectors, according to Noble.
“There has been a rapid growth of innovative treatments delivered through autoinjectors, which allow patients the convenience of self-administering the drug. Our priority is to help ensure that patients who self-inject feel confident they are using their devices correctly, since studies suggest device familiarity and patient confidence may help improve adherence,” Noble CEO Jeff Baker said in prepared remarks. “We believe our new connected error correcting device platform, with its array of smart features, can coach patients through training to administration at home.”
