Product Description March 6, 2017 – Posted in: IontoPatch Educational Resources
IontoPatch is a time-released electronic transdermal (iontophoretic) site-specific drug delivery patch. The self-powered iontophoretic patch is a medical device (being that a drug is not embedded in the patch or packaged with it), precisely tuned to deliver a specific dose of medication locally and non-invasively as an alternative to an injection. A self-contained battery produces an electric current to carry drug molecules across the skin to underlying tissue. Drug delivery is shut off automatically when the prescribed dosage has been administered. The patch is single-use and disposable. It is wrappable, compressible and weight bearing. IontoPatch includes a family of four products that provide different dosage and treatment options based upon the patient’s condition and tolerance.
