Owen Mumford Presents Latest Device Innovations For The Treatment of Diabetes at 50th Annual EASD Show
15 September 2014
Leading medical device manufacturer will showcase new pen needle innovations alongside its extensive range of injectors and lancets
Oxford, UK – 16 September 2014: – Owen Mumford will present a range of test and injection innovations that provide greater safety, convenience and patient comfort in the treatment of diabetes at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) meeting September 15- 19, 2014 in Vienna, Austria, on booth #W03.
With a focus on solutions that support self-management and good injection routine, Owen Mumford presents a new 4mm 32 gauge version of its Unifine Pentips Plus pen needle. This unique design encourages frequent needle change  combined with a shorter, thinner needle to reduce penetration force  for a more convenient and comfortable injection experience.
Part of a good injection routine includes using diabetes pen needles only once. Changing the needle tip of a pen injector after each use can also improve the likelihood of delivering the correct insulin dose.  With a built-in needle remover that contains the sharp, Unifine Pentips Plus pen needles allow for easy, one-handed capping - making it convenient to change needles when travelling or injecting on the go – and has been proven to increase adherence to good injection routine.
“Making the injection process as easy and comfortable for the patient as possible plays an important part in encouraging good self-management practices, which in turn help to reduce the risks of complications and treatment costs,” said Richard Walker, Global Product Manager for Drug Delivery Products. “Our products for home health and clinical environments are designed to provide greater patient comfort as well as bring new levels of safety and convenience to patients, care givers and healthcare professionals.”
