Innovative Micro-Infusion Pump for Gerresheimer Subsidiary Sensile Medical Developed and Successfully Launched for EVER Pharma

Gerresheimer AG


Düsseldorf/Olten, July 03, 2019 – Developed specially by Sensile Medical for EVER Pharma under the brand name D-mine®, this wearable microinfusion pump recently received European CE certification and has already been launched in several European countries. The compact, patient-friendly infusion pump is used for the continuous subcutaneous administration of drugs to treat Parkinson’s disease. The first micro pump from Gerresheimer subsidiary Sensile Medical to be available on the market, it gives Parkinson’s patients greater independence in their day-today lives.

The D-mine® pump is used to administer apomorphine in the advanced stages of Parkinson’s treatment. Simple handling, safety, and ease of use were the main aims behind the development. The compact design is down to Sensile Medical’s special micro-rotation pump technology and is straightforward to use thanks to an intuitive menu interface.

“In developing the EVER Pharma D-mine® pump for treating Parkinson’s disease, we have completed a very challenging project with a tough set of requirements,” explains Georges Kahwati, General Manager at EVER Pharma GmbH. “This product signals clearly that EVER Pharma is committed to focusing on the needs of patients and providing them with customized solutions and innovative medical products.”

“With EVER Pharma’s successful market launch, Sensile has delivered an ambitious project with highly innovative user requirements,” adds Derek Brandt, CEO of Sensile Medical AG. “Parkinson’s patients now have an innovative solution at their fingertips. Our integrated pump technology is already proving its worth in other treatment areas.”

Parkinson’s patients often have difficulty moving and appreciate the pump’s ease of use, such as the automatic dosing function, the lack of complicated flow rate calculations, and the intuitive menu system. Its integrated choice of languages and the full-text display on its color screen make it easier to learn the ropes, while modern technologies such as data storage and individually adjustable basal rates support better treatment management. The D-mine® pump comes with a specially designed charging station and does not need any conventional batteries.

With its brand of the Parkinson’s drug apomorphine and its own medical product, EVER Pharma now offers a comprehensive treatment package. You can find more information at www.d-minecare.com.
