E Ink Holdings and and LTS (Lohmann-Therapie Systeme) AG announced a partnership to co-develop an e-paper powered smart medical patch solution. The Transdermal Therapeutic System (TTS), which delivers medication to patients directly, features an E Ink display to display the statue of the delivery system.
The current prototype that has been developed use a 2-inch E Ink display, a switch and a pressure sensor. The display has several options, including a timer, corrector and reminder. E Ink says that this is the first application to use E Ink's new low-voltage film that uses 50-70% of the typical driving voltage for E Ink displays, and so can be used with a smaller battery than before.
