Düsseldorf (D)/Olten (CH)/Chicago (IL, USA), April 15, 2019. The micro pump-equipped drug delivery devices of Sensile Medical, a subsidiary of Gerresheimer AG, have an unmistakable design. The design was the creation of Team Consulting, an agency based in England which in 2018 received the renowned Good Design Award in the category “Medical 2018” for its work. At CPhI North America in Chicago Sensile Medical will be showcasing its innovative solutions for digital and electronic drug delivery devices at the Gerresheimer booth no. 1227 from April 30 up to May 02.

“We are continuously working on improving quality of life for patients who rely on injection aids,” says Sandra de Haan, CBO at Sensile Medical. With SenseCore micro pump technology, Sensile Medical ensures the safe, simple, and precise administration of liquid drugs by the patient themselves at home or on the move, and always with absolute reliability. This injection aid is impressively simple and discreet to use and the patient does not see the needle, making it suitable for all manner of different applications.

In 2017, Sensile Medical commissioned the British agency Team Consulting, which specializes in medical devices, to package these requirements and attributes of its drug delivery devices in a patient-friendly design. The Chicago Anthenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design Good Design Award is the world’s oldest and most prestigious design award, open to manufacturers, companies and emerging start-up businesses.

This is what the jury at the Good Design Awards based their decision on

The Sensile Medical Design Language provides a unified look across a range of injection devices. Different product varieties can be clearly identified as belonging to a single family with key attributes of the Sensile technology – the flexible modular approach and low-cost disposable component.

The Sensile family of products addresses many of the key user and commercial concerns that surround wearable injection devices; namely ease of use, comfort, discretion, reduction of waste, flexibility and ease of customization.

By creating a uniform product family range from a coherent design language, Sensile's range is significantly strengthened.  Its customers in particular rely on the devices offering a consistent user experience, independent of the primary packaging for medication.
