Epinephrine Smartphone Case

Epinephrine Delivery System

A 2018 study by the Univ. of Southern California showed that half of adults with severe food allergies haven’t had their EpiPen® or other auto-injector with them during their most severe attack.

Dr. Edmund Pribitkin, CMO of Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals, approached Archimedic (then Smithwise) with a proposed solution–embedding an auto-injector for epinephrine into the case of a smartphone.

This project is based on an issued US patent held by Thomas Jefferson University, US 10,022,506.

Jefferson is currently pursuing partnership opportunities for this device. For further information, please click here.



Pediatric Endotracheal Device

Spirocath Endotracheal Device for Neonates

Intubated patients require ongoing secretion management to remove mucus build-up inside and around their breathing tubes.

In most patient populations, this is easily managed by using a suction catheter. However, due to the size of a newborn’s airway, a very narrow diameter suction catheter must be used, leading to frequent clogging and preventing effective clearing of secretions. In addition, the negative pressure required to clear secretions using this method can cause lung collapse in premature or especially ill newborns, putting the baby at risk of complications or even death.

A team from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) partnered with Archimedic to develop Spirocath, a suctionless mucus removal system to improve the standard of care for this vulnerable patient population.

Spirocath uses a flexible plastic auger, contained within a catheter and driven by an electric motor, to feed mucus up the length of the breathing tube to a drain. Employing mechanical, rather than pneumatic, means to accomplish this task eliminates clogging and reduces risk of complications associated with the procedure.

Cervical Cancer

Screening Device for

the Developing World

Though highly treatable, cervical cancer is the third most common cancer worldwide and is often fatal, with 80% of cases occurring in the developing world. This is due in part to a lack of effective screening programs.


Access to life-saving screenings is impeded for many women in developing countries by their remote location, lack of qualified screeners, and social stigma.

A team of researchers from the University of Pennsylvania worked with Archimedic to develop a low-cost cervical cancer screening device that can be used by a patient to capture images of her cervix for professional evaluation offsite.



Medication Management System

Smart Pillbox for
Medication Management

1 in 3 Americans suffer from a chronic illness that requires multiple medications. For these individuals and their families, medication management is often an area of stress and anxiety.

TowerView created a simple, end-to-end medication management service that includes a smart bill box with pre-filled medication trays and sends reminders to take medications.

The Archimedic engineering team developed the full mechanical design, the peripheral light pipe, and integrated all electronics. Archimedic performed full DFMA (Design For Manufacturing and Assembly), assisted with sourcing activities, and guided the Towerview team through the manufacturing transfer process.

“Only 50% of patients take their meds as prescribed, resulting in $100 billion in avoidable hospitalizations.”

Instant Ear Geometry Capture

The standard process for fitting and manufacturing hearing aids is logistically complex, expensive, and time-consuming. Before a hearing aid can be made, a physical ear impression must be created and shipped to a manufacturer.

Lantos Technologies worked with Archimedic to bring the process of creating hearing aids into the 21st century. Now, rather than having a tube of silicone squeezed into a patient’s ear, audiologists quickly scan the inner and outer geometry of the ear with an optical handheld digital scanner. This results in a detailed 3D representation of the ear instantly sent to hearing aid manufacturers through the Internet. The Lantos technology captures a better scan of the ear canal resulting in a more comfortable and accurate fit for patients.
