An increasing number of injectable drugs are being developed for long-term self-administration and represent the first group of injectables that are being designed with the end user in mind. These drugs are the first beyond insulin and vaccines to limit packaging in vials in favor of prefilled specialty injection devices. For drug self-administration devices, human engineering and user ergonomics are essential attributes that impact critical patient issues such as safety and patient compliance. While designers have acquired many powerful design tools during the past decade – tools that include 3D CAD design software and high performance materials – design team have been increasingly relying on classic end user research to define the design targets for their projects.
