Windgap Medical receives funding for development of their long shelf-life epinephrine powder auto-injector that is the size of a Bic lighter.
Excerpt: Stepanian made a case for the Windgap device, saying it holds these three improvements over the EpiPen:
•The Windgap device is smaller – about the size of a Bic lighter. By contrast, the EpiPen is bulky for someone with allergies to carry around and it’s difficult to fit in a pocket. After all, one criticism is that patients —or when it comes to children, their parents — don’t always carry auto-injectors around. Then they don’t have them when they have an allergy attack. Windgap’s approach is to make it easier to keep on hand at all times.
•Windgap has engineered a dry formulation of epinephrine that’s more shelf-stable and less sensitive to temperature. Again, it’s more pocket-friendly because it can withstand the heat of a pocket without worry of denaturing. This one’s notable, because it’s meant to outlast both the EpiPen and the Auvi-Q.
•Windgap’s more intuitive to use: Even when you’re having an allergy attack, you can immediately know which end’s the pointy end. It’s common for EpiPen users to hold the device backwards and inject epinephrine into the wrong body part. Furthermore, Windgap’s design’s meant to reflect today’s aesthetics – it’s meant to be sleek and understated.
