"Making it easier  to carry epinephrine  ON YOU at all times"

The challenge of securing immediate access to medications such as epineprhine auto injectors sounds easy
until you have to do so every day. For men, is even more difficult so in my search for a solution I bought every
pouch and carrier I could find  and this is what I have learned:

  • Medicine Pouch for the purse or a backpack: Carrying the Epipen® in a purse or backpack works
    as long as you keep it on your shoulder at all times.  But as we all know, the minute you walk into a party
    or go visit a friend you end up putting the bag down on a corner chair or a table.  In an emergency can
    you be 100% sure that you can find the bag with the medicines in less than a minute? What if someone
    moved it and placed it somewhere else as it often happens?

  • Fanny Packs:  No matter how many I buy and how many styles I try, wearing a fanny pack is a great
    idea but for me it only works when I go to the park or to a place like Disney World.  They work  if you are
    wearing super casual clothing like shorts.  My husband and kid don't like to wear them, no matter how
    sporty looking they are because they don't like tucking in  their t-shirts, and if you don't  they could be
    quite bulky.  

  • Carrying case/pouch with clip-on hooks:  These work as long as you hook them to your belt, but
    having it hanging off your waist makes it a constant conversation piece.  Every time I hook one to the
    outside of a bag or on my waist it's like becoming a walking advertisement billboard which is OK, but
    sometimes you just don't want all conversations to be about allergies.

  • Men with Bags:  No matter how much they try, men are  not wired to carry a bag, and if they do, they
    usually don't remember where they put the Epipen in the bag or even worse yet, where they left the

One day while preparing to go out biking, my husband and son were  struggling to find a place to put the  
Epipen®. then they started  trying to put them inside their socks but they kept falling off. This is how the idea
of designing medicine pouches that could be carry on the legs, arms, ankles, and/or wrist was born. After two
years of testing different designs and materials LegBuddy™ and WaistPal™  became
"a solution to a need
come true
