New Pill Package - Applicator for Ointments


The invention offers two new packaging methods for pills and ointments. Advantage of the packaging is the one-hand operation and the sterile appli-cation of the drug. <br> <br> Pills are fixed on a carrier item that is airtight sealed in a blister-like packag-ing. It enables the patient to take the pill sterile with one hand from the carrier item. Particularly, the pill goes straight to the mouth of the patient and any contact with the possibly unwashed hands or the non-sterile environment is avoided. The invented pill dispenser can have marks for the weekdays and daytimes. Additionally it has a fixed package information leaflet, so that mixing up with other drugs is excluded. <br>

<br> For the sterile application of an ointment a small map packaging was invent-ed. Therefore, the ointment is airtight sealed on a cushion at the end of a rod-like carrier item. The rod-like carrier items are alternating fixed on the map packaging and one map contains as many dosages as needed for one day. <br> <br> The patient is able to apply target-oriented a defined dosage of one use sterile at every time and everywhere. Therefore, the packaging is especially convenient while being on the road. <br> <br> <b>Benefits:<b/> <ul> <li>Sterile application of drugs</li> <li>One-hand operation</li> <li>Simply application being on the road</li> <li>Meets the growing need of the aging population</li> <li>Simple adaptation for different purposes</li> </ul> <p><strong>IP Rights</strong><br> German Application (August 2010) <br> PCT Application (August 2011) <br><br> <strong>Patent Owner</strong><br> Hochschule für Technik und Wirt-schaft Berlin

Im Focus: ILA 2018: Laser alternative to hexavalent chromium coating

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.

When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...

Im Focus: Radar for navigation support from autonomous flying drones

At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.

Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
