DESIGN CHALLENGE

A range of medications are administered in liquid form, including Anti-Retroviral medications (ARVs) for HIV-positive infants and children. Studies show that 40-60 percent of parents make errors when giving children liquid medication. Delivering the accurate dose of medication is critical to ensure proper treatment and prevent viral resistance.

The DoseRight® Syringe Clip is a small plastic clip that fits into the barrel of an oral dosing syringe. It serves as a manual stopping mechanism that presets to the correct dose in order to assist the caregiver an accurate drug delivery. The simple, color-coded design provides a method for accurate medicine administration regardless of the user's literacy level, visual acuity, or manual dexterity.
