Thanks for the detailed response, MomtoBunches!

I showed the trainer to our principal today who thought it was great to have the verbal instructions. I've asked her to show the other staff quickly just in case a student brings one in their backpack etc. The public health nurse will be able to train everyone on it along with epipen in September when they do their annual training. I will decide at that point if I want my kids carrying Allerject or Epipen at school. . . .

Alison's mom, I wanted to thank you for posting the Spiband idea. I love the idea, and I showed my son, and he really liked it too. If you order one, can you please post your thoughts. Also, how do we know which size to order? I see there is S-M-L. I suppose a phone call would be in order. We are currently using the Spi-belt, and LOVE it. I mimicked what it would be like to use the spiband by pulling out an old sports wrist band and put it on around my ankle and then tucked the Allerject trainer into it. Obviously the spiband would be much better, but at least we got the idea. I think it's fantastic, and it would be nice to not have the bulk around the waist. I have a meeting with the principal on Wednesday to show her the new Allerject. She had not yet heard about it, so we definitely need to get into the schools to show them. We don't want our son wearing one to school until the school staff are trained, so it won't be until at least the fall...

Hi Julie, I'm actually not planning to have my kids use the spiband as they are Gr 1 and Gr 3 and I think the spiband would be too hidden for a teacher to find under clothing. I like the idea for when they are older, though.

If you are close to a Running Room store, they have them in stock, though not sure about all the sizes. I was at the biggest RR in Vancouver last week and they had several different spibelts as well as the spibands in stock. Spibelt might be able to provide you with other stores that have them for you to try out, as well as size info.

Kozy has started making a neoprene pouch for one or two allerject units:

Just received our free Allerject pouch from Sanofi. It can go onto a belt or it has a clip.

Our pouch arrived last week too. The glow in the dark star stickers were a fun addition. I'll be trying mine out on a run this coming weekend - see how they do on the existing SPIbelt.
