Adherium have come out on top at this year’s Hi-Tech Awards, claiming the coveted Hi-Tech Hardware Product award. Over 900 people attended the awards ceremony, which celebrates the successes of New Zealand hi-tech companies across 13 categories.
In selecting Adherium as Most Innovative Hi-Tech Hardware Product, the international judges said, “Adherium has developed a deceptively simple asthma drug delivery system which elegantly embeds multiple sensor technologies into a small device, and combines it with smart applications and cloud data services to help people with asthma and other chronic obstructive pulmonary diseasess. It gives health care providers and pharmaceutical companies access to a rich database of medication use that can be used for continuous improvement and application to achieve better health outcomes. The Adherium platform has enormous potential, not only with asthma and COPD medication, but also many other medication regimes. The judges were impressed by the completeness of Adherium’s vision, their ability to execute that strategy, the success they have already achieved, and their well-considered global growth strategy.”
