Tools such as handling videos and universal image-oriented instructions for use (IFUs) have already been proven to be useful tools for those less familiar with auto injectors.

However, a training device that simulates the steps to taking an injection with an auto injector takes this to a whole new level. Generally, such training devices replicate the look and feel of the actual device, but without any drug or needle inside. This provides users with an opportunity to practice handling the training device without the fear of making an improper injection.

In addition to overcoming the psychological barrier of self-administering an injection, an auto injector trainer is an effective training tool for not just patients and healthcare professionals that will teach them, but also for biopharmaceutical companies for internal training.
