Aerosol Dispenser

The challenge

An elderly client has Carpal Tunnel syndrome and also suffers from Angina. As such she has difficulty applying sufficient pressure to the medication release button on her aerosol dispenser.

Based upon a design in a previous yearbook, a similar style mechanism was constructed. This particular model permits simple insertion and removal of the medication capsule and also utilises no springs, which would have increased force requirements. The device permits either single or dual hand operation.

The client can now easily depress the medication release button on her Angina spray.
