Connected Drug Delivery Devices Market

Connected drug delivery devices are the wireless connected and smart electronic devices that allow patient-administrated therapy. Primarily, these devices are equipped with a sensor that offers various features such as adherence trackers, dosing remainder, and patient education tools. Also, these devices are used for the treatment of various diseases such as multiple sclerosis, diabetes, liver & renal transplant recipients, hepatitis C, hypertension, asthma, tuberculosis, and clinically isolated syndrome. Modern drug delivery devices when compared with the traditional devices are much more sophisticated. Many of these devices are packed with electronics and sensors that allow in tracking dose delivery & timing and offer instant feedback to patients. This help the patients to know whether a dose has been successfully delivered or not. Many devices available today are also connected to apps and programs, either through wireless connectivity or cables that allow data transfer.
