Jonathan Bradshaw is a design engineer with a background in industrial design and a Master’s in Medical Device Engineering. Mr Bradshaw has experience in the design, development and commercialisation of fluidic dilution and dosing systems, cardiac catheterisation devices and drug delivery technologies. Currently Mr Bradshaw works as a Device Development Engineer within Oval Medical Technologies where he focuses on furthering the development of the company’s novel PDC and autoinjector technology to ensure its devices offer reliability and consistently high performance in combination with usability benefits.
The limitations of using glass-based auto-injectors, such as contamination, and the need for delivering complex, viscous preparations, have led to a new approach that uses polymeric PDC technology instead. Jonathan Lawson, Jonathan Bradshaw and Susie White look at what polymeric PDCs can offer in making auto-injectors truly patient-centric.
