Janssen

Spravato Nasal Spray

Nasal Drug Delivery Trainer

Background

Janssen asked us to develop a robust and repeatable Trainer to support the commercial launch of a single use nasal spray product to treat severe depression.  We identified the key aspects of the delivery experience and built them into a reusable training device; giving patients the opportunity to become familiar and confident with the administration process before using the real device for the first time.

Having already supported the engineering development of the drug delivery device, we had an intimate knowledge of the device requirements and the needs of the intended user group. This helped us transfer the essence of the real device use into a teachable training experience that allowed the patient to become comfortable and ready to self-administer the real therapy.

As a trusted partner we also understood the requirements of Janssens supply chain and regulatory processes, allowing us to manage the entire process which simplified the supply of the devices to multiple locations.
