Piezo-operated aerosol generation ensures that high-quality drugs are applied in a more targeted manner, opening up innovative therapy concepts and significantly reducing the risk of side effects. As piezoelectric ceramics use a crystal effect to generate displacement, they exhibit neither friction nor wear and therefore don’t require maintenance. Another benefit of piezoelectric aerosol generators is that they are suitable for professional cleaning. Most importantly for patients, membrane nebulizers require far less time to nebulize drugs than conventional systems. In operation, they are almost inaudible and with minimal energy required, the piezo components are highly suitable for portable inhalation devices. This significantly increases the quality of life, especially for patients with chronic respiratory diseases having to inhale frequently.
