The combination of safety and a high-quality look and feel.

Hand-held devices: competence and passion

A distinct trend towards greater complexity can be observed in the steadily growing global market for hand-held devices, such as the medical devices for measuring blood glucose levels: in addition to the devices' miniaturization, they are also expected to display greater functionality and permit flexible dosing, for example.
Here too, "medical compliance" is a key factor, in addition to the complexity. Calls for more personal responsibility on the part of the patients impose considerable requirements on the medical products. Use by the patient in conformity with the medication concerned can only be assured through the combination of safety and a high-quality look and feel. Throughout the entire process chain, Balda Medical takes account of all these factors as the pressure on costs continues to rise.

Mini Tablet Dispenser

Balda Healthcare delivers sophisticated concepts and convenient solutions meeting the pharmaceutical market's requirements
and trends in respect to packaging and dosing. Promoting patient compliance with the therapy (medical compliance) is a major trend in the pharmaceutical market. Practical experience has shown that patients frequently take their medication incorrectly, thus limiting its true efficacy. "Drug Delivery Systems" make it possible to develop products that allow patients to take their medication effectively, safely and conveniently. What's more, modern pharmaceutical firms increasingly rely on specific drugs developed and produced in bioengineering processes. Such products require new and more sophisticated packagings.

Product examples:
> Drug Delivery: Inhalers, pill dispensers, safety syringes, powder dispensers
> Packaging: Pill cartridges, glass-to-glass connectors, drug containers, tubes

There is no single pill for everyone – mini-pill dispenser ensures optimum dosage.

App-controlled Smart Drug Dispenser.

App-controlled Smart Drug Dispenser for Medication

Patients will soon be able to use their smartphones to dose their medication. A joint development from Balda Healthcare, a medical technology company, and Mechatronic AG, this incredibly useful product combines an app with a compact dispensing device. It eliminates dosage errors, therefore preventing unnecessary health complaints and hospital stays.

The Smart Drug Dispenser makes a significant contribution to the safety of treatment by functioning as a helpful signal for patients. Doctors and patients can conveniently use the app to enter their required amount of medication and the times at which it must be taken. The palm-sized device stores the dosage plan and dispenses the medication at the push of a button. A notification sound from the smartphone app reminds users that the dose is available. If users forget to take the dose within a specified time, it is no longer available. This is to prevent overdosing. The scientific data shows that support like this is urgently needed.
