That's a cool idea.

Might get uncomfortable over a whole day - but for a teen going to a dance or out to a movie ...

I love that idea! Handy for the allergic person, or for parents of allergic children. I also love that it isn't prohibitively expensive, as some useful things can be.

Because it's so well concealed on the person it is just that much more important that the wearer tell his/her friends about the condition, where to find the auto-injector and what to do in an emergency.

Don't forget to tell people that a 911 call is free form any phonebooth. Many people a panic in crisis.

I have developed an idea for a holder of auto-injectors that would be worn on the body. I need people to try out my idea and give me feedback. If anyone is interested, please private message me. I am especially interested in getting feedback from older children and teens, children who hate carrying the auto-injectors cos of teasing or other issues, men (cos they tend not to carry purses and stick their auto-injectors in them), and people who have found cost and/or lack of available products to be a barrier in being able to have access to an auto-injector at all times. In exchange for feedback and a picture of you wearing the holder, I will provide the holder at no charge.

I will custom make these holders according to you or your child's preferences, and they come in pink or pale green, as well as primary colors, beige, silver and black.
