Medicinus
A plastic figurine to ease the process of administering oral medication via syringe

7 out of 10 parents have difficulties in giving their children the right amount of syringe-administered fluid medication orally, as syringes arouse unpleasant hospital-like associations. Medicinus encloses the syringe in a friendly, smooth and round shape, creating a more comfortable atmosphere and removing anxiety from both parent and child.
