H&T Presspart (a division of the German based Heitkamp & Thumann Group), announces today that a new partnership deal has been signed with BIOCORP, a French based company specialised in the development and manufacture of medical devices and connected healthcare solutions, whereby H&T Presspart is licensed to sell and promote BIOCORP’s InspairTM smart add-on device for metered-dose inhalers.

The partnership covers the integration and commercialisation of InspairTM, a smart sensor designed by BIOCORP that transforms inhalers into connected devices to help patients suffering from asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in the delivery of their treatment.

The partnership with BIOCORP will allow H&T Presspart, the market leader in respiratory drug delivery devices, to expand its product portfolio in the field of digital healthcare solutions beyond its existing embedded eMDITM platform with an add-on device that will improve patient adherence and will help patients to manage their conditions more effectively.

Christian Kraetzig, President of H&T Presspart commented “This strategic partnership underlines our commitment to forging alliances that accelerate the development, global scale-up and commercialisation of novel drug delivery solutions for patients,”

Eric Dessertenne, CEO of BIOCORP added: “We are very proud to entrust the distribution of InspairTM to H&T Presspart, one of the world leaders in the respiratory disease market. This new major agreement further positions BIOCORP as a provider of connected health solutions. After our success with MallyaTM, BIOCORP now has a second solution with very high potential both in terms of business and the number of possible applications with InspairTM”.

InspairTM provides an innovative and effective response to the needs of these two diseases: It directly affects compliance with treatment and strengthens the link between the patient and the medical staff by providing real-time therapeutic monitoring. InspairTM records daily inhalation data, monitors proper aerosol preparation (which must be shaken before use), assesses inhalation timing (hand-to-mouth coordination) and provides useful insights into the various stages of inhalation.
