The Remunity® pump, which has been jointly developed by United Therapeutics and DEKA, is indicated for subcutaneous delivery of Remodulin. The Remunity pump consists of a small, lightweight, durable pump that is intended to have a service life of at least three years. The Remunity pump uses disposable cassettes, which are connected to the pump prior to each 1 to 3-day delivery period.
The Remunity® uses acoustic volume sensing technology to improve pump function as compared to current subcutaneous infusion pumps. The Remunity pump reduces the risk of bolus dosing due to pump failures and provides a wider array of notifications, alerts and alarms than current pumps to enhance patient convenience.
