Medical - Medical: Health Care / healthcare
German term or phrase: schnüren
Describing the services offered by a support center for patients on a new type of medication. Not sure what to do with "geschnürtes." Does it literally mean tied/laced/ bound or does it have meaning that escapes me?

In den ersten Therapiemonaten erhalten Neu-Patienten fortan ein speziell geschnürtes sechsteiliges Infopaket: Im ersten Monat beispielsweise alle wichtigen Hilfsmittel rund um die Anwendung, wie Kühltasche, automatische Injektionshilfe und Reisebox oder im zweiten Monat einen umfassenden Ratgeber, der den Umgang mit der Krankheit erleichtert.

Explanation:
Hi Trudy,

"geschnürt" in this context just transports the image of tying a parcel and in this case simply means: packing together a set of information materials;
you might as well leave it out without losing any of the information

Regards

agree  Hildegard Klein-Bodenheimer: if you want to translate the part *put together* might be the best way to go.

agree  Jonathan MacKerron: I'd go with "bound"

  -> Thanks, Andrea

agree  Anne Schulz: "individually composed"?// True. Something made me think of "individually" when I first read the text, but re-reading it I can't find it any more.
10 hrs
  -> Thanks, Anne, that was what I first thought of, but it doesn't say there it's an individual package - it's a special one and might be the same for every patient
