Created for blister-based powders, the Twist'n'hale offers a simple-to-use operation. It features a turning wheel on the side of the container. When the cap is opened, the wheel is rotated clockwise in a single movement up to the stop point, which releases the dose. Users then inhale and close the cap. Usage is monitored via a dose counter and reloading the dispenser is easy. The patented multidose inhaler offers accurate dosing and dispersion over a range of flow rates (RSD prototype <8 percent) and meets EMEA and FDA requirements on DCU. It deliver a consistent fine particle fraction (percent aerosolized particles <5µ). Twist'n'hale is suitable for adhesive types of powder blends and a variety of drugs, and can be tailored to different dosing amounts. A choice of decoration options is available to personalize the dispenser for individual medicines.
