DESIGN AWARD 2020
RED DOT PRODUCT DESIGN AWARD
Hovione Technology innovative device 8Shot™ Dry Powder Inhaler (DPI) enabling high dose drug delivery to the lungs has received the Red Dot Product Design Award 2020 in the Healthcare Daily Living AIDS category.
The Red Dot Design Award is an internationally recognized quality seal awarded for innovative and high-quality product design.
“The Red Dot jury’s experience and expertise evaluating outstanding product design and technical innovation for more than 60 years is unparalleled. This distinction awarded to 8Shot™ is a great success for Hovione Technology”, said Peter Villax, Hovione Technology’s CEO.
8Shot™ is the world’s first 8-doses, factory filled dry powder inhaler device enabling effective and safe drug delivery to the lungs that offer the highest dose delivery capability at easiest use and convenience to the patient.
With 8 pre-filled doses, the patient just turns a dose wheel to access the next dose, providing a friendly solution for daily dose delivery without the burden of instructing the patient to reload a device multiple times with a capsule or blister leading to a long, time-consuming, error-prone use sequence.
The dose wheels provide visual feedback to the patient that the inhalation manoeuvre has been successfully delivered.
There is currently no other device in the world today making available a dry powder inhaler technology capable of enabling fast and safe of up to 400mg of a pharmaceutical compound to the lung by inhalation. 8Shot™ is truly unique and innovative and meets the needs of pharmaceutical companies developing new drugs.
8Shot™ is manufactured from only two injection parts that make this device a unique and economically viable innovation from acute to long term high dose inhaled delivery treatment.
“We are extremely proud and delighted to accept the Red Dot Product Design Award, together with our design and development partner WeADD”, said Dr João Ventura Fernandes, Hovione Technology’s Director of Technology Development and Licensing.
