Bormioli Pharma Dispenser Design now is over!
Bormioli Pharma and Desall recently has announced new product design contest, inviting designers and creative talents to design a tablet dispenser capable of releasing medication in a controlled manner according to prescribed dose.
Bormioli Pharma is looking for a new product capable of containing and dispensing oral drugs, particularly tablets and micro-tablets, in a controlled manner.
In the medical field, there are different types of prescription that require accurate dosage of the drug, but at the same time need to be flexible according to the needs of the patient, i.e. modulating the amount of tablets according to age, weight and other variables.
The focus of the product will therefore be to improve patient adherence by maximising the match between the doctor’s prescription and the drug actually taken by the patient.
Plastic injection moulding is the main approved production technology for the dispenser. All areas coming into contact with the drug shall be made of plastic materials. Matt finishes are preferred, allowing for grip and easy handling of the dispenser.
The aesthetics of the product shall be minimal and modern, using curved and soft shapes, and excluding sharp and angular shapes.
Other sectors besides medicine, such as aerospace, can also be used as inspiration for the style. The product shall communicate and ensure reliability, robustness, trust, safety and ease of use.
