Combine SmartPilot with YpsoMate and begin capturing accurate, unbiased injection data while enabling intuitive, step-by-step user guidance. Transforming the proven YpsoMate autoinjector into a fully connected digital health solution facilitates your big data strategy.
SmartPilot's ergonomic, user-centred design ensures an effortless injection experience. Seamlessly integrated with Ypsomed Digital Health, it empowers patients to confidently manage their therapy.
SmartPilot is compatible with both YpsoMate 1ml and 2.25ml autoinjectors.
Monitor adherence & understand user pattern
Facilitate adherence monitoring in clinical trials or real-world patient monitoring programs with SmartPilot. This add-on device captures injection events and compares them with treatment schedules in the app, providing comprehensive insights into patient adherence and usage patterns.
Patients retain the flexibility to inject wherever they prefer, as the SmartPilot operates effectively both with and without connection to the app, ensuring no loss of any important data. After each injection, data is recorded and stored in the SmartPilot's local memory. It is then seamlessly transferred over Bluetooth® to the app when a connection to the app is established, providing continuity and reliability in data tracking.
Data captured by SmartPilot:
- Date and time of injection
- Injection success. In case of unsuccessful injection, SmartPilot provides detailed insights of handling errors such as partial injection or insufficient holding time
- The information from the YpsoMate NFC-based label, such as drug type, expiry date, batch/lot number, production date (optional feature)
Avoid handling errors
Couple YpsoMate autoinjector with SmartPilot.
Perform the injection and automatically transfer data to mobile application.
Remove from skin after completion of injection including holding time.
Discard YpsoMate save SmartPilot for future use, and rate perceived experience when performing self-injection.
Promote patient confidence in self-injection by delivering intuitive step-by-step user guidance during the injection process. SmartPilot detects the YpsoMate spring movements and translates them into injection steps displayed on the patient app.
Facilitate successful injections by detecting handling errors. SmartPilot delivers information about user handling errors to the app and the app delivers real-time user-specific guidance on how to avoid errors. In addition, SmartPilot delivers visual and audible feedback guiding the user through the injection process, even if the injection is performed without app connection.
These handling instructions are for demonstration purpose only. They do not replace the instructions for use of the customer product.
Effortless injection experience
SmartPilot was developed and designed in close collaboration with potential users. Several human factor studies were performed to evaluate acceptance and user friendliness of the solution and the feedback has been incorporated into the design.
No need to charge or change the battery of SmartPilot during its lifetime. SmartPilot can be re-used for up to 2 years (or 120 injections) and stored for 3 years prior to use.
Visual and audible feedback of the SmartPilot indicates the battery status and the app informs the user when the battery is low or empty.
Supporting correct drug use
The YpsoMate NFC - based label is an optional feature and works even when the patient performs an injection without connection to the app.
After inserting YpsoMate into the SmartPilot, the device provides visual and audible feedback, along with app-based messages, informing the patient about the validity of the medication.
The drug product is verified by comparing the drug type, set in the SmartPilot’s injection settings, with the YpsoMate’s NFC-based label.
The expiry date is checked by cross-referencing the current date on SmartPilot with the expiry date from the YpsoMate's NFC-based label.
