Enable’s drug delivery system can be packaged with or without the drug container. The user simply inserts the container into the system, places the injector on the skin, and presses the central button. A viewing window shows the drug and indicates the progress of the delivery. After delivery is complete, the needle is automatically retracted and locked out, with the user notified via audible, visual and tactile feedback. The user then removes and disposes of the injector.
