The iFridge, a portable refrigerator allowing a better conservation of heat-sensitive medications, and the iTube, a cooling container for medication, will be presented for the first time at the Taiwan Technomart Show in 2010.

MedActiv represents France at the International Technomart Competition in Taipei between the 30th of September and the 3rd of October 2010, and will present its new solutions for the storage and transport of sensitive drugs. Amongst these solutions will be the iFridge, a revolutionary portable fridge with a battery pack giving the user complete mobility for 28 hours, as well as the iTube, a new technology invented by Uwe and Olaf DIEGEL, well known experts in the field of health management, for the safe transport of insulin.

iFridge: Innovation as the ultimate expression of technology

The “smallest refrigerator in the world” is designed for insulin and any other medication that needs to be maintained at a fresh and constant temperature. It allows those suffering from chronic diseases to transport their medication in perfect safety during their travels, at work and at play.

“In 2003, when we invented the world’s first truly portable fridge, we had not yet realized the impact our invention would have on the lives of millions of people worldwide who are effectively prisoners of their diseases. Today, I am proud to say that with the iFridge we can transport just about any medication safely, ranging from insulin to procreation agents. In France alone, there are over one million people with a lifestyle that is hampered by their fragile medication. To these people, we offer freedom of movement and freedom to better manage their health, knowing that their medication is always kept at exactly the right temperature”, says Uwe DIEGEL, president of MedActiv.

The iFridge is recommended for the transport of insulin, vaccines, adrenaline, interferons, procreation agents, coagulation agents, growth hormones and monoclonal antibodies (TNF/Anti-TNF), covering diseases such as diabetes, polyarthritis, multiple sclerosis and growth deficiencies.

iTube: A state-of-the-art technology that answers the daily needs of patients

The iTube is a brushed steel vacuum thermos tube designed for transporting a single heat sensitive medication pen. It is small, light, elegant and uses a thermos vacuum as a cooling element.

The novelty of the iTube lies in its portability, its uniquely compact size, and in its application of vacuum technology.

“Because the iTube looks a bit like a cigar tube, it might at first be seen as a gadget. However, I think that the iTube will be the single most used item by a diabetic on an everyday basis. Since I’ve started using it, I keep it with me at all times, so that when I go out to dinner with friends, I can simply pull it out of my jacket pocket without anyone noticing it, discretely inject myself and then stick it back in my pocket”, says Dr Olaf DIEGEL, head of research at MedActiv and himself a diabetic.

“The iFridge and iTube technologies make it possible to simplify the management of all chronic diseases that use drugs sensitive to heat”, explains Uwe DIEGEL, president of MedActiv. “Any person who suffers from a chronic disease is defined by his or her daily lifestyle, so it is important that we give them the correct tools that will give them the freedom to take responsibility for themselves. The iFridge and the iTube do just that and give them the liberty to embrace a new lifestyle that includes travel and movement.”

The iFridge and iTube will be available to the public on the site http://www.medactiv.com from December 24, 2010.
