- Mathematical modelling enables the opportunities and challenges of a range of device types to be explored early



- The implications of such characteristics as viscosity, dose volume and injection frequency are inseparable from the choice of delivery device



- Unfortunately, early consideration of the delivery device does not always take place. Opportunities can thus be lost and problems created which are costly and difficult to solve later



- Mathematical modelling techniques, applied properly, improve understanding of the issues concerned and enable better and earlier decisions to be taken



- Better informed decisions and better appreciations of the design options in turn support device designs which are better for the end user



- Early understanding of device issues supports and enables robust designs and capable manufacture



- Early understanding can shorten development timescales, in turn making earlier approval and earlier revenues possible

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
