Utah Firm Develops Emergency Supplies Case for People With Diabetes
Utah-based Essential Preparedness Products (EPP) offers an emergency storage case for people with diabetes, called Diabetic med-EcaseTM. The yellow cases, made of high-impact material, are waterproof, airtight, and can float. Buyers of the $69.99 product receive foam inserts for both type 1 and type 2 needs and can outfit the case accordingly.
Standard contents in each case include:
◦ Glucose tablets
◦ Alcohol swabs
◦ Syringe/utility container
◦ Log book
◦ Ice pack
◦ Five empty medication bottles
◦ Seven-day pill dispenser
◦ Two diabetes type-specific foam inserts
Company owner Jennifer Lindley says that she came up with the idea for a diabetes emergency case after seeing a news clip of a man stranded on the roof of his house after Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005. The man had spray-painted "diabetic" on his roof, indicating that he had run out of essential supplies.
