Unleashing possibilities for patients, families, and medications through innovative pharmaceutical solutions
We always knew that epinephrine injectors were just the beginning.
Founded in 2011, Windgap Medical has always been patient-first and technology-focused. What began as one conversation about life-threatening allergies and the inadequacies of current medical delivery devices soon led to online surveys, patient interviews, and meetings with doctors and healthcare providers.
Through our research, we were blown away by how deeply the risk of anaphylaxis—and any medical condition requiring emergency medication—impacts the lives of patients and their families. They weren’t just limited by their medical condition, but by the limits of the medicine itself.
Every conversation we had pointed to three key concerns:
- Shelf-life and stability
- Ease of use
We learned people build their days and entire lives around their epinephrine autoinjector. They constantly worry about heat exposure, shelf-life, and user error—which means they limit where they can go, what they can carry, and what they can do.
So we set out to create an instant autoinjector that would deliver a simple, stable, and easy-to-use solution for each of these concerns—not just for epinephrine, but for as many medications as possible.
Since its inception, Windgap Medical has been revolutionizing drug delivery devices and the medicine they contain to create simple, safe, and stable solutions for today’s most concerning health conditions. With 100+ issued patents, Windgap seeks to improve the lives of patients with life-threatening allergies, diabetes, opioid addiction, cyanide exposure, and more through its partnerships with ALK Abelló, University of Minnesota Twin Cities, National Institutes of Health, Allergy Partners, Molex, and more. Windgap Medical is based out of Watertown, Massachusetts, a growing pharmaceutical hub in the US.
