EpiCard

There’s a new epinephrine auto-injection delivery system on the horizon. Really.

Here’s a brief story about the EpiCard on HealthCentral.com.

I will be posting an interview with the 20-something-twin-brothers-who-are-severly- allergic-themselves i.e. the founders v. soon.

Please, please let this come to the market soon. I know that I should be excited for it's safer, more user freindly designs, but I'm thinking, they'd take up so much less space in my purses then my dual epi-pen and maybe I could carry around one of those cute tiny purses I see othe women carrying. I know... shallow... whatever

Hoping that an epicard jr is also in the works...

littlefish: not shallow for a little fish to want a little purse. :-)

tara: that's a great idea. i bet they're thinking about it...

I remember hearing about this a few years ago. I'm glad to know that things are progressing. My 10-year-old son brings it up every once in a while as well. Looking forward to the interview, Allergic Girl!

Couldn't agree more with all of you, especially little fish :) It's hard going out with friends or holiday party and having to carry a big purse instead of a little cute one. One of the links leads to pix of the injector which are green and yellow. Green is the Jr version right? So hopefully they will make it available in this form as well. May be nice for teenagers on the go as well, easier to fit in jean pocket, sports bag, etc..
