The patents will be auctioned off at ICAP Ocean Tomo's Spring 2011 Live IP Auction on March 31, 2011 in New York City.

Key Characteristics

The patents disclose the following:

  • A compact, extendable spacer device which extends outwardly and closes inwardly relative to the housing of the aerosol canister housing, to further preserve compactness the aerosol canister reciprocates upward as the spacer parts move inward, this greatly reduces the respiratory drug delivery device to about the size of a commercial inhaler without a spacer. This device is designed to utilize a medication aerosol canister. These characteristics enable the device to be pocket size and easily carried on their person.
  • This device will enable the user to have the best of both worlds, the benefits of a spacer and its medication, while increasing patient compliance and enabling the convenient and correct administration of aerosol medications.
  • The disclosed device can be used for a variety of applications, including administration of pulmonary drug delivery, and treating chest related diseases.
  • The inhaler's compact structure facilitates the convenient administration of drugs.
  • The inhaler comprises a hollow housing for receiving and dispensing medication, wherein the housing comprises an aerosol medication container and a nozzle segment for spraying the medication into a patient's mouth or nose.
  • The nozzle portion includes a flexible spacer that can acquire different shapes within the same cross sectional area of the nozzle. This reduces both the length of the nozzle and the size of the inhaler.
  • The inhaler is more compact and portable than conventional devices. It does not require any external attachments or components for effective drug delivery.

Market Potential

The disclosed technology offers the following opportunities:

  • The global market for pulmonary drug delivery techniques was estimated to be $19.1 billion in 2010, while the global market for metered dose inhalers (MDI) was nearly $10.5 billion in 2007.(1)
  • This lot should be of interest to pharmaceutical manufacturers, medical device manufacturers and healthcare service providers.
