Many patients do not stick to their autoinjector regimens, which can lead to poor health outcomes. As Craig Baker, Executive Vice-President at Noble, explains, there are many reasons why this is the case such as patients forgetting or insufficient communication during the training sessions. To tackle the problem, Noble has recently launched the AdereIT [...]
In an increasingly crowded marketplace, the availability of realistic trainers can serve as a key differentiator that can set a pharmaceutical company ahead of its competitors. Noble has designed an agitator needle simulation tip to replicate the forces and feel of the needles that are used in manual insertion. Joe Reynolds, Research Manager, looks [...]
The use of training devices has been shown to improve correct inhalation device technique in patients.

Pulmonary drug delivery is an effective route of pharmaceutical administration but research has shown that a large majority of patients fail to use their devices properly. To address this problem, training devices can help patients learn how to administer the drugs correctly. Joe Reynolds, research manager at Noble looks at the design challenges that [...]
Using Noble’s recent partnership with BD to develop trainers for BD’s UltraSafe™ needle safety technology as an example, Joe Reynolds, Research Manager, Noble, discusses the importance of training devices for the successful onboarding of patients beginning to use self-injected therapeutics, and how Noble’s training devices are designed to be faithful to the look and [...]
Prefilled Syringe Device Training: Novel Approaches & Technologies to Increase Patient Confidence & Decrease Anxiety
Noble's Research Manager outlines some of the fundamental principles and benefits of training devices in the context of prefilled syringes and highlights some specific training device technologies including novel needle simulators and angle aids.
Autoinjectors have become the main drug delivery devices of choice due to their ability to simplify the number of steps required for injection. However, many patients make mistakes using the devices such as not holding the device correctly or not keeping it in place for long enough. Mike Siemer, Director of Design and Engineering [...]
