Mohammed Alshaiba Almazrouei, President of Medad Technology, said, “At Medad Technology, we are dedicated to pushing the boundaries of public health innovation with novel therapeutic solutions. Our achievements in patent acquisition and the development of proprietary technologies demonstrate an unwavering commitment to improving patient outcomes. Innovation is central to the UAE’s economic growth, and Medad remains committed to contributing to this vision by establishing a strong presence in R&D, design, engineering, product development, and manufacturing.”

In a recent clinical study, Medad Technology’s cutting-edge ultrasonic delivery system, with its proprietary chips and algorithms, demonstrated unparalleled efficiency in drug delivery by controlling aerosol particle size. With an aerosol consisting of tiny particles, the technology enables direct delivery to the deepest regions of the lungs through inhalation, bypassing the user’s metabolism and facilitating direct bloodstream absorption.

The success of Medad’s technology marks a leap forward in improving drug delivery efficiency, thus improving the prevention and treatment of chronic illnesses and enabling the inhalation of medications previously limited to oral administration in pill form. This breakthrough has the potential to transform the pharmaceutical field by lowering costs through dose reduction and minimizing drug wastage while mitigating the side effects of traditional oral medications.

Medad Technology’s primary focus is evaluating its technology as a nicotine replacement therapy to aid smoking cessation. With tobacco smoking being the leading cause of preventable death, accounting for over 8 million deaths globally per year, according to the WHO, the company’s innovative approach offers a promising solution. Unlike traditional nicotine replacement therapy products, efficiently delivering nicotine through inhalation provides rapid relief of cravings while maintaining the habitual aspect, ultimately increasing the success rate of quitting smoking. The use of ultrasound eliminates the chemicals that cause smoking-related diseases, such as formaldehyde and acrolein, reducing potential harm to the user.

Additionally, Medad Technology is working on novel drug delivery methods to treat diseases such as pulmonary hypertension, a condition that is becoming more prevalent as the world’s population ages. The company’s inhalation-based treatment is designed to reduce side effects commonly associated with existing pill-based medications, providing a more effective and patient-friendly treatment option.

Medad Technology’s groundbreaking advancements mark a significant leap forward in improving drug delivery efficiency, opening doors for developing novel, cost-effective, and patient-centric treatment options. As the company continues to innovate, Medad Technology is committed to shaping the future of the HealthTech industry by integrating AI and LLMs into their solutions. With a forward-looking vision, the company strives to establish the UAE as a vibrant hub of engineering and manufacturing excellence. Central to this ambition is their state-of-the-art facility in Abu Dhabi where research and design converge with rapid prototyping, PCB population, and production processes, affirming their dedication to excellence and the development of an eminent UAE made product portfolio.
