Hug: Painless Vaccinations

Bronze
2011

Hug is a new system for childhood vaccinations that employs an emerging technology for drug delivery with microneedles. Hug patches are efficient, heat tolerable and, most importantly, painless. The Hug vaccination system creates a stress free, informed experience for parent and child so they enjoy this intimate lifesaving moment together rather than the stress and anxiety normally associated with injections.
