Abstract

A dose completion communication module that may be affixed to a sharps disposal container as a detachable/reusable apparatus, or alternatively be integral to the sharps disposal container. The communication module may detect disposal of an actuated (used) autoinjector and send a digital signal to an Application, The Cloud, or a Bluetooth enabled device. The communication module may detect an actuated autoinjector being placed into the sharps disposal container by sensing a signal emitted from the auto injector, visual recognition means, or by receiving a manual input by the Patient (such as a keyed in-input) of what was disposed.

A Dose Completion Communication Module, Specifically for an Autoinjector

A dose completion communication module that may be affixed to a sharps disposal container as a detachable/reusable apparatus, or alternatively be integral to the sharps disposal container.   The communication module may detect disposal of an actuated (used) autoinjector and send a digital signal to an Application, The Cloud, or a Bluetooth enabled device.  The communication  module may detect an actuated autoinjector being placed into the sharps disposal container by sensing a signal emitted from the auto injector, visual recognition means, or by receiving a manual input by the Patient (such as a keyed in-input) of what was disposed.

 The system generally would work as follows:

·         The dose completion communication module would be affixed to the sharps disposal container (if not already present as an integral part of the sharps disposal container), and powered on. 

·         Upon completion of delivering a dose of medicament, the used autoinjector would be disposed of in a sharps disposal container.

·         When the used autoinjector is placed into the sharps disposal container, it may be detected by the communication model by sensing a signal emitted from the autoinjector (The signal may consist of information such as the identity of the autoinjector, medicament identification, and/or time of actual use (the module may distinguish time of auto injector use from time of disposal)), visual recognition, or by ma...
