Who should attend?

This inaugural conference will be beneficial to all those who are interested in learning about, developing or sourcing wearable drug delivery devices. This includes pharmaceutical, medical device and drug delivery companies both large and small. The conference will be of particular interest to R&D, technical, medical, clinical, operating and marketing functions at all levels of management within these organisations.


The first “wearable” drug delivery device was developed in the early 1960s, a backpack which delivered insulin to the wearer. Smaller, more conveniently wearable, syringe-drivers were developed over the following decades for delivery of insulin. These type of devices are now universally known as insulin pumps and the latest versions are stuck directly onto the skin and controlled wirelessly. Ambulatory syringe drivers and bladder pumps are also used for chemotherapy and analgesia. From the 1980s onwards, wearable passive transdermal patches were developed for dosing a range of drugs such as hormones, analgesics, anti-hypertensives and nicotine to aid smoking cessation. Recently there has been emphasis on development of wearable pumps to deliver larger volumes of biologic drugs, which would be inconvenient to deliver by self-injection. This conference will review the current trends in the market and highlight the latest technology in this fast growing area.
