The best professional pill grinder

Have you ever crushed a pill by hand? It is hardtakes time and most important; is not safe. Yet it is still common practice in almost any healthcare environment around the world.

Crushing a pill takes up to 21 kgf of pressure; four times higher than considered safe by the Dutch Occupational Health and Safety Inspectorate. The physical stress regularly leads to complaints and even physical pain among healthcare professionals. Furthermore, during the manual grinding of pills, aerosols are released in the air, causing increased exposure and contamination risks.

The expression that something is “a hard pill to swallow” isn’t just a metaphor. Swallowing pills can be difficult, unpleasant and even downright painful for many people.

Dysphagia

The expression that something is “a hard pill to swallow” isn’t just a metaphor. Swallowing pills can be difficult, unpleasant and even downright painful for many people. Some people have a natural aversion to swallowing pills, especially elders, while other have physical issues affecting their ability to take in oral medication.

The medical term for swallowing problems is dysphagia. Dysphagia cuts across so many disease- and age groups that its true prevalence is often underestimated. It’s estimated that 22% of all adults above the age of 50 up to 68% for residents in long-term care settings suffer from a difficulty of swallowing – a number growing larger with our aging population.

In cooperation with the faculty of Food & Biobased Research of the reputable University of Wageningen, IMS developed the Severo Swallowing Gel; with the aim to ease the oral intake of tablets, capsules and powders for this vulnerable group.

The gel encapsulates the medication, allowing it to effortlessly pass the larynx while simultaneously masking its bitter taste. After swallowing, the gel quickly dissolves in the stomach, this way minimizing the efficacy and uptake of active ingredients by the body. The practical bottle with dose pump makes it ideal for use at home or in any type of care facility. In addition, the gel contains no sugar, alcohol or any common allergenic substances – making it suitable for anyone.
