AT A GLANCE

Our client company, VEXAR, needed to build a working opioid control intake device based on a prototype. Computools offered a comprehensive solution with critical features such as cartridge security, small screen integration and fingerprint access. Our team proactively designed and implemented these features, ensuring regulatory compliance and improving safety and adherence.

THE CLIENT

VEXAR is a pioneering healthcare company specialising in smart, dose-controlled prescription medication systems. Their innovative approach connects the entire drug supply chain, enhancing safety, compliance, and prescription adherence. VEXAR operates in a highly regulated industry and has recently been recognised for its cutting-edge technology in healthcare solutions.

BUSINESS CHALLENGE

The client built and tested the prototype on the board, confirming its functionality. The next step was to bring the project to the DFM ( Design for Manufacturing) stage, which required rapid realisation. However, to do this, they needed to raise funding to organise clinical trials and plan the further development of the project.

SOLUTION SUMMARY

Our team built version 1.0 from an existing prototype. The features it included:

  • Ensuring the integrity of medication cartridges throughout the supply chain.
  • Incorporating a user-friendly interface for easy navigation and interaction.
  • Allowing for convenient replacement and replenishment of medication supplies.
  • Implementing biometric authentication for enhanced security and user authentication.

Additionally, Computools managed the entire development process from ideation to production readiness, including documentation.

IMPACT

VEXAR received a fully functional, reliable and safe medication intake control system. It is user-friendly for both patients and healthcare professionals.

WHY COMPUTOOLS

VEXAR considered several vendors but chose Computools due to its extensive experience in creating safe and reliable medical devices. Computools’ ISO 13485-certified risk management approach ensured that VEXAR’s system would meet all regulatory requirements. This was a decisive factor for the company.

Computools engineers worked closely with the VEXAR team to define and implement the required features.
