Emergency medicine wearable
Medicine Case is a wearable container that secures a user’s emergency medicine to their wrist like a watch to ensure that it is always with them. This product was designed for people with epilepsy, a brain disorder that causes seizures, so in the event the person is suffering from a seizure, their life-saving medicine is easily accessible for someone to administer to them. This could be used for any number of conditions where emergency pills are needed.
Talia Newman Wearables came to NextFab with an idea for a life-saving product motivated by the personal experience of having a child with epilepsy. NextFab began by learning about the disease itself and exploring the currently available portable emergency medicine solutions. One of the primary goals in treating a seizing person is timely administration of the emergency medicine, this can prevent long term issues or even death. The Med Case gives a bystander or caregiver a visual cue to the person’s medical needs and immediate access to their emergency medicine.
The solution was a slim medicine case that is worn on your wrist like a watch. The case is compatible with standard wrist watch straps, so it’s completely customizable by the end user to suit their style. The case itself is an inexpensive, rugged, waterproof, injection-molded plastic part. These cases can be produced in a variety of shapes and colors to appeal to different customer needs and pill sizes.
“I really loved working with NextFab. I was looking for a company to collaborate with and support my efforts rather than just doing all the work in a silo and handing to me in the end. I really liked their iterative process, and appreciated their communication and flexibility.”
