Will your child wear an Epipen or Auvi-q carrier?
Finding and choosing an epinephrine auto injector carrier that kids
will be willing to wear can be more than challenging. Unfortunately,
many children will make their parents believe that they always have
their epinephrine auto injectors with them.
Most children want to carry their Epipen's or AuviQ's, but the minute
they arrive at school or at a friends house wearing a fanny pack, or a
pouch that hooks to their belt, they will take them off and will hide
them in the first place they see. They simply don't want to stand out
nor have to deal with the usual questions or comments triggered by
most epi carriers. I can't remember how many times I have spoken to
parents who said; "My kid is very mature for his age...and he always
keeps his Epipen's near him".That's him? That's what I also thought
until the day I saw my son putting the Epipen's in a "very safe place"
a hidden place so that other kids wouldn't mess up with them.
Where are some of the places kids hide their bags with the
Epipen's? Behind bushes next to entrance doors, under a bench,
behind a garbage can, inside any drawer, under sofas and beds, even
under bathroom and garage sinks. Unintentionally, by not carrying
their epi's on them, they are taking risks that are greater than they
could comprehend at such young age.
The medical community frequently reports that the majority of
patients who experienced an allergic anaphylactic reaction had
trouble communicating their symptoms, felt confused. Carrying the
Epipen's inside a piece of clothing comfortably strapped to their leg's
or waist with a medical alert symbol helps other notice that you are
carrying emergency medications.
No plastic buckles Epipen belt WaistPal unique design:
The WaistPal undergarment waist sling was designed to carry and
conceal up to two Epipen's. It is by far the best option for kids ages
5 and over. This waist concealed sling has details that no adult could
have thought about, all thanks to a kid that decided to help his mom
design a carrier that was comfortable to wear. His main reason
wasn't because he really thought he needed to have the epi's
strapped to his body, but mainly because he really wanted his mom
to stop following him everywhere he went. For over ten years, not
even once, has he been outside his home without having the Epipen's
Why is easier to self carry the Epipen's inside the WaistPal?
Because it was created to be worn as an undergarment soft
concealed sling. It has no plastic buckles, buttons, or metal pieces
that could pinch or injured the skin. Unfortunately, many parents feel
that getting the latest running belt or fanny pack is the "normal"
thing to do, and forget that a kid with food allergies needs to wear
an epinephrine carrier on them at all times. Kids will be kids and will
often play rough, fall, or get pushed while playing with friends.
Why basketball, volleyball and soccer, and physical education
uniforms don't use plastic buckles or any kind of hooks? To eliminate
the risk of accidents. Remember, a broken buckle while playing
sports could be as dangerous as carrying a knife, even if it is made
out of plastic.
The WaistPal is manufactured by OmaxCare designed paying
attention to make every detail the best possible. Inside is fully lined
with soft fabrics, latex free, outside waterproof neoprene, contours
to your body, no buckles, cool athletic design, medical alert symbol,
reinforced stitching makes it durable, easy to put on and take off,
one slim pocket on the front and another one on the back, comfort
plus and fast access Epipen pockets.
Stay safe, be safe, and prepared to stop food allergies from
escalating to life threatening anaphylactic shock. Self carry Epipen's
on you at all times. Please make sure to start teaching allergic kids
to self carry their epi's before they enter school. Get them an Epipen
or Auvi-Q carrier they will wear and helped them create the habit of
not leaving home without their epi's.
