Take In Case Epi-Pen Carrier
Made With A Mother's Care
Take in Case, the premier EpiPen® Auto-Injector carrier, makes it easy for anyone to keep their lifesaving medication with them at all times. The Take in Case™ story is one many people can relate to.
Kim Hartman is a mother of three and her youngest is severely allergic to all nuts and eggs - he must have an EpiPen® Auto-Injector on him at all times to counteract a potentially life-threatening reaction.
Kim wanted to find a sporty, light-weight case that her son wouldn’t mind wearing on his leg or arm. When Kim couldn't find what she was looking for she decided to make it herself. She teamed up with fellow mom Maureen Cooney to create Take in Case™; a comfortable, secure, sleevelike case for the EpiPen®. It is designed to hold two EpiPen® Auto-Injectors and has been recommended for use with these devices.
Who should buy Take In Case™?
Everyone who lives with severe allergies and/or their caregivers.
- Take In Case™ is a wearable sleeve-like case with pockets specifically designed for EpiPen® Auto Injectors. The pockets have two interior flaps designed to be pulled securely over the Epipens so that they are not exposed.
- On the shin, thigh, upper arm etc. (under pants/sleeve or can be exposed!).
- There is no cure for severe allergies. Anaphylaxis can be sudden and life-threatening.
- Slip onto leg or upper arm; secure EpiPen® by pulling interior pocket flap completely over pen.
Our Best Advice for Parents
Allergies of any kind should not be taken lightly. Benadryl® is a great safety precaution that new mothers should always carry with them. If you suspect your child may have an allergy, do not wait until something happens. Be proactive and get your child tested. There are two popular tests that are done to diagnose allergies - one is a skin prick and the other is a blood test.
Once you know that your child has an allergy, don’t be shy! Reach out to other families, friends and relatives, and talk to doctors. Besides making everyone aware of the nature of your child’s allergies, oftentimes people with allergy experience can provide you with information that you might not have known.
The Internet is also an incredible resource for information on allergies, with several medical websites that can help parents get up to speed. To access these different medical websites, visit our Links Page.
