“CE approval of the D-mine Pump and the launch, is an important milestone for our product portfolio in Parkinson´s disease. EVER Pharma is now able to deliver an enhanced and comprehensive package of care with its Parkinson´s disease medication Apomorphine and its own Medical Devices,” explains Dominic Benning, Head of Dopaminergic Therapy at EVER Pharma GmbH.

Primary symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are shaking, tremor, slowed movement and rigid muscles. Hence, these patients often have great difficulty controlling anything that requires delicate handling. The D-mine Pump has only a few, easily pushed buttons, and an easy to read display, reports MedGadget.

While developing the D-mine Pump, EVER Pharma’s primary goals were ease of handling, safety and intuitive use. Leveraging special micro-rotary pump technology, minimal buttons and a bespoke menu screen interface, the device is conveniently compact and easy to use. It also features automatic drug filling, multiple languages, data storage, and does not require complex flow rate calculations.
