Two things I hold with high respect in my life: Start up business and the Auvi-Q® epinephrine auto-injector. Some of the world’s best innovations and solutions rise up from individuals with ideas. The Edwards boys brought the Auvi-Q® to life and Carry Nine founder, Stephane Oatway, has committed to supporting teens and adults who want to carry their epineprhine auto-injectors with style and ease. Although, Carry Nine is not endorsed or supported by Auvi-Q® or EpiPen® manufacturers, Stephanie works on easy solutions to inspire carrying these life saving medications.
Note: I was not paid by or asked Carry Nine to write positive things or anything about their products. I contacted them with interest and was delighted to test out their items. My goal is share what I find with you. What I think is wonderful, might not work for you. What works for you, may never hold up in my household. This is the beauty of sharing information in a community! As always, before you make any changes to your health care protocol, speak to your physician–they are the experts.
My family was very fortunate to test out the Auvi-Q® single carry wallet and skin. My sixteen year old son Cyrus put the wallet to task! “I like the convenience of being able to carry an Auvi-Q®, my driver’s license and money”. The wallet allows you to store up to three credit cards along with a pocket to tuck in money. My son prefers to carry two Auvi-Q® and was pleased to hear a double carrier is in the works. But, my eleven year old daughter caught wind of the product and said liked the wallet carrier quite a bit. At this point in time, she carries two EpiPen® epinephrine auto-injector and was happy to hear that an EpiPen® wallet is on the horizon. Both kids were thrilled about the idea of new kind of carrier that has a more mature stylish look and feel that is dressier and not as athletic looking. Even thought the styles seems masculine, I agree with my daughter, I like the wallet concept quite a bit and I would happily carry the wallet myself.
Basically, we have moved into the space of needing epinephrine auto-injectors the same way we need shoes: some for athletics, casual or dressy! I guess it’s time to add a new category to shopping: epinephrine carriers.
My daughter was excited over the skins that partially cover the epinephrineauto-injectors and thought those were very cool. These did not tickle my son’s fancy as he wants to the blaringAuvi-Q® label out there loud, but understands that not all teens might now feel the same. I’m actually, very excited to see the upcoming EpiPen® wallet and Auvi-Q® holster with clip. I’ve seen many men with cell phones clipped on their belts, so I’m curious to see if the epinephrine auto-injector holster would pique their interest too?!
Everyone lives life so differently with so many various needs. I’m happy to see new products emerging to meet our diverse life styles.
