MEMS Based Structural And Fluid Flow Mechanics And Simulation Analysis Of Micro Needle For Drug Delivery

Abstract— Micro electro-mechanical system (MEMS) is rapidly growing area of interest for a broad spectrum of applications. One particularly fast-growing area is biomedical applications for micromaching technologies. One application of interest to the biomedical industry is the development of micro needles. MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical System) design systems are used for the development of microneedles, which are used for drug delivery. The drug delivery through micronnedle is painless which is not in case of transdermal needles. This paper presents the work in the field of micro needle-based drug delivery with the specific aim of investigating a micro needle-based transdermal patch concept also it presents the characteristics of micro-needles are more reliable. Drug delivery and Fluid extraction requirement in terms of minimal needle dimensions and force withstanding capabilities, which are inversely related to each other. The typical structure of a microneedle is simulated for these studies. The studies show that the typical micro needle with only silicon material can withstand the physical conditions. These studies also show that drugs of various viscosities can be delivered successfully.
