Hopefully, you don’t need regular access to epinephrine injectors, or know anyone who does, but if you do, you might want to look into getting a Veta Smart Case for EpiPen and App, which just came out. The smartcase can help travelers and others keep track of their life-saving medication by providing real-time alerts and notifications including: separation alerts, auto-injector removal alerts, and temperature and expiry alerts. The app communicates with the case via Bluetooth, so a Wi-Fi connection isn’t even required.
It’s not cheap, with a pack of two running $119 on Aterica.com and $129 on Amazon.com (with free shipping for Prime members), but the cost might be a small price to pay given what the case can do: keep epinephrine injectors on a digital leash, and therefore relieve stress levels in anyone that has to travel with allergies.
If you do suffer from allergies, below are some tips from Aterica:
- Carry documentation: always have a list of what you’re allergic to and your medical information on your smartphone in case of emergency.
- Pack lots of “safe” snacks: you never know when travel delays might pop and leave you without options.
- Locate the closest medical facility near your destination that can treat allergic reactions if necessary.
- Download apps, like Allergy Eats, to help find restaurants that accommodate whatever allergies you might have.
