Compelling design enables simple adherence monitoring
Ypsomed has been successful in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021. An international jury of experts has awarded SmartPilot for the UnoPen pen injector the distinction “Red Dot”, which stands for high design quality.
The innovative SmartPilot transforms the dial-and-dose prefilled UnoPen injector into a fully connected system. It not only reliably tracks injection dose, time, and date but also guides the user throughout the injection process including safety check and holding time. SmartPilot is intended to facilitate therapy management during clinical trials and after commercial launch.
As a customer centered company Ypsomed sees compelling design as a key factor in making it simple and convincing to rely on connected health care solutions that improve therapy outcome. As Gerhard Pirker, Senior Project Manager and Davide Lo Castro, Product Manager at Ypsomed state: "Winning this award is another step on our journey towards advanced therapy support. We truly believe, that compelling design helps people to easily step into connected care. This award confirms that we are on track."

It’s not easy to prevail in such a strong field of competitors and to win over our jury. Consequently, I want to congratulate the laureates very sincerely on their success,”
