Colbert Packaging Corporation has been awarded a U.S. patent for its MedLock EZ family of patient compliance packages. It is the tenth patent issued for Colbert’s paperboard specialty products and the first awarded for MedLock EZ.
The patented design consists of a fully brandable and recyclable outer paperboard shell housing a pill blister card locked into place with an integrated locking mechanism. The lock disengages by squeezing and holding touch-points at one end of the paperboard shell while sliding the blister card out through the other end. Once the blister card is exposed, medication can be pressed through one of the individual blisters. Sliding the blister card back into the outer shell reengages the lock.
In addition to the branding and sustainability advantages of a paperboard-based design, MedLock EZ’s large printable area also offers ample opportunity to engage patients in their drug treatment regimen.
MedLock EZ is one of nearly a dozen paperboard specialty products created by Colbert Packaging, and the latest in Colbert’s growing line of unit dose packaging solutions for patient compliance.
