Incorporated in 2009, Medisafe 1 Technologies Corp. seeks to effectively prevent unauthorized administration of a drug or medicinal substance by hypodermic needle. The Company’s patented technology is a medical assembly with a locking mechanism. The intention of this is to ensure the substance cannot be released from the hypodermic needle without positive pre-matching between the substance and its intended patient.
The Company believes that their technology has the potential to be adopted as a standard in all major markets, making a decisive contribution towards the elimination of errors from injectable medication. Their medical assembly effectively helps prevent unauthorized administration of a drug or medicinal substance by hypodermic needle.
It accomplishes this by taking a medical assembly and incorporating a locking mechanism intended to ensure the substance couldn’t be released from the hypodermic needle without positive pre-matching between the substance and the specific patient, identified by bar-coding or other identification technology. The expectation is that the system can be applied not only to hypodermic needles, but also to any assembly for storing any kind of medicine.
Medisafe 1 Technologies Corp. has developed a fully operational prototype with PIA Electronics Ltd. The principle features of the prototype design include a protector that fits over a proportion of the medicine assembly, a bar code and locking element, an electrically operated device to control the locking element, and a connection to a bar code reader. The protector includes an enclosure that surrounds a container of medicine, whether it is intended for oral intake, transdermal delivery or any other kind of medicinal administration.
In May, Medisafe 1 Technologies Corp. announced that they initiated discussions and negotiations with a Group of Engineers that have developed a Major Medical (Patent Pending)Breakthrough Technology that alerts Emergency Medical Service Units and/or other Healthcare providers for individuals in the need of advanced Medical Treatment. The Technology embodies a band worn by individuals who are prone to possible need of medical care. The Band detects and will send an automatic alert of the vital signs of the related individual, showing the possible need of imminent intensive medical care required.
