OptiNose - multishot nasal spray

Breath Actuated Nasal Spray

The complex geometry of the nasal cavity can make it challenging to efficiently and reliably deliver drugs to the mucosal surfaces. Traditional nasal sprays lose much of their drug dose to the throat and stomach, where its effects are delayed or even undermined by the digestive process.

By combining particular anatomical and aerodynamic features of the nose, OptiNose's innovative breath-powered nasal delivery technology is able to efficiently and reliably deliver drugs to targeted, hard-to-reach areas to treat a variety of medical conditions.

medical device prototyping Brightworks were involved to develop a new concept design for a reusable (multi-shot) version of the spray technology and produce 3 working prototypes, all to be achieved within a 5 week timeframe.

Brightworks' concept was later developed to become OptiNose's main device for the delivery of liquid formulations.

The delivery technology is a highly versatile, patient-friendly alternative to oral delivery and injection, and has the potential to: -

  • Produce reliable dosing
  • Improve patient compliance
  • Allow patients to self-medicate
  • Reduce health workers' risks of needle-stick injuries
  • Lessen the possibility of user failure
  • Minimize local irritation
