This autoinjector is inspired by the Phillips Medisize Connected Autoinjector. Autoinjectors are commonly used by people with multiple sclerosis (MS), which affects movement and coordination. The medication to treat MS is rather viscous and is injected into muscular tissue by the patient, so it must be administered slowly. This process is often difficult and painful for those with MS due to a lack of coordination and the viscosity of the injected medicine.

 

In consideration of these obstacles, this autoinjector ergonomically fits the hand and injects the medication for the patient with the press of a button. Further, the digital features include online syncing and sharing with the patient's physician and a wellness tracker.
