The first runner-up was awarded to Medicsen and their innovative needle-free smartpatch. The company was founded to improve the quality of life of people living with chronic diseases. Their first needle-free and wearable drug delivery wearable device has harmless waves that increase the size of natural skin pores, and it is painless and safe as the pores close when the device stops.

While Hera Health Solutions were given the second runner-up position. They are a pharmaceutical device company specialising in researching, developing, and commercialising long-acting treatments through proprietary bioerodible drug delivery implants. The bioerodible drug delivery technology aims to eliminate the costly and painful removal procedure of current contraceptive arm implants to provide women with a safe and effective solution for contraception.
