Just got this info from another forum I belong to - a good visual of the EpiCard:

More details about the EpiCard are posted at

(Scroll down a few stories.)

Karen, do you know if the device is on the market yet?

I like the convenient portability of it.

What a great product! I certainly hope they can get the funding, etc needed to get it onto the market.

Nicole - As mygirlsyd implied, it's not on the market yet. But it would be very interesting to have yet another auto-injector option out there.

Hi Karen

I just noticed this article on the epi-card. As we carry 4 epi-pens, this would be a welcome invention for our family. I have read all the articles, but I don't see any info on when it might be availble on the market. Do you know anymore about it?

Andrea, There's been no word yet on when it will get to market because the brothers are still trying to get the funding to complete work bringing the device from concept to marketable product. (And then there would be the FDA/Health Canada reviews.)

Some allergists have questioned whether the device will provide enough epinephrine, which seems a logical question. I presume the bros. will address this in the final version of their product.

But as a concept, it sure does have appeal.
