Aptar Pharma will unveil Prohaler®, the smart DPI for optimal patient compliance

During the next edition of CPHI/ICSE Europe tradeshow which be held on October 7th to October 9th, in Paris Villepinte, Aptar Pharma will introduce Prohaler®, the smart DPI for optimal patient.  

The Prohaler® DPI has been developed with a patient-based design approach which makes it intuitive and simple to use by all asthma and COPD patients.

Prohaler® features a novel powder dispersion technology enabling consistent lung deposition even while operating at relatively low patient inhalation flow rates. The results of a recent research showed that Prohaler® has excellent ergonomics, providing intuitive and constant handling characteristics. It is easy to use, with only 3 simple steps needed: open the device, inhale and close it; inhaling triggers the release of a full dose of medication. And a dose counter reminds the patient how many doses are left in the device.

Prohaler® incorporates visual and audible feed-back systems to facilitate ease-of-use and patient compliance.

Prohaler® also has a unique patient safety feature to avoid any risk of double-dosing and wasted doses. And the drug product is protected inside individual blisters which are only opened upon inhalation by the patient, providing optimal powder protection.
