Plastic moulded applicators to apply creams and treatments to sensitive areas

When a leading manufacturer in the healthcare sector wanted to provide patients with an applicator which was both easy to use and provided a controlled dosage – they approached Tex Plastics with the brief. Having been recommended by another manufacturer in the healthcare sector, they felt sure Tex Plastics experience would help translate designs into a cost-effective manufacturable product.

One key part of the brief was to understand where the application would be used

The applicator needed to dispense a controlled dose to anal warts, which are very small and are located only on the skin around the anus. Anal warts are highly contagious and are also referred to as condyloma acuminata, can start as small as a pinhead and grow to about the size of a pea. Whether they cause pain or not, anal warts should be removed because they can spread the infection throughout the body.

The end applicator design needed to be hygienic, comfortable and affordable

The design team at Tex Plastics worked with the healthcare manufacturers product development team to define the key criteria. Plus it needed to hit a price point which made the treatment affordable for the end patient. The result was a plastic injection moulded controlled dosing system that was easy to use, comfortable and made the treatment an affordable ‘off the shelf’ solution to an embarrassing condition.
