Title: FLUID DISPENSING SYSTEM AND METHOD OF USE
Abstract:
Platform or system of drop-dispenser devices and method for use thereof, where one device in a platform is active in that it is equipped with a data-recording/transmitting/processing/feedback unit configured to provide feedback on whether a drop is delivered to the ROI as intended, while another device is passive in that (being otherwise substantially structurally similar in configuration and operation to the active device), it does not have such a unit and is structured to simply hold, stabilize, and/or position a liquid-drop container to aid in successful delivery of the liquid drop(s). While using the system, the user may start using the passive device and switch to the use of an active device if the results of delivery of drops to the ROI with the passive device is unsatisfactory with respect to a schedule, or success rate, or for any other reason. The use may start using the active device first and, once the period of training (with the feedback provided by the active device) is over and the habit or routine of the use of the active device without supervision is satisfactory - switch to the use of the passive device. The geometry of devices in the system is judiciously chosen to facilitate increase in success rate of as-intended drop delivery.
