Answers to your questions:

1. 3.5 years/male 2. Peanuts 3. Always 4 very important 5 A0 B7 C0 D0 E0

6 Yes A1 B7 C5 D6 E4 F2 G3

7 Back Pack and one in a safe location

8 Irrelevant if it saves his life, though obviously the cheaper the better because they are bloody expensive now at $50 US a piece.

9. The current auto injector is intimidating looking (even for parents). However if a child grows up looking at it, then it just becomes part of who they are. I don't think many kids will be laden with the responsibility of injecting themselves until they are at least 8 or 9 years old at least. I would wonder if the current size is a bit too big for smaller hands?

Good luck with your research. As a mom with a child who can die from an everyday item, I am happy to help with any kind of research in this area.
