“We aim to bring visual interfaces into places where they have not been before, like medical packaging”. Marcin Ratajczak, CEO Inuru
Every year, a staggering number of people suffer due to the misuse of medication. This creates irreparable, damaging costs for pharmaceutical companies and the overall health care system. Luckily, Inuru’s visual interfaces provide a solution to lessen these numbers and help patients use medications properly.
Highlighting the importance of Inuru’s technology during his acceptance speech, specifically in regards to medical packaging, Marcin Ratajczak, CEO outlined the further strategies of the company’s technology and how it can benefit various users.
Additionally, the recognition of Inuru’s latest technological achievements simultaneously comes with the company’s expansion into the Polish market. With this, Inuru is setting up a new corporate operation in Poland.
