A company called Aterica unveiled Veta, which is touted as the world’s first anaphylaxis and food allergy support system for individuals and their families. This smart case works in tandem with a corresponding app to connect loved ones and caregivers to people living with life-threatening allergies, resulting in increased freedom, security and confidence for both users and caregivers.
Veta smart case replaces the stock EpiPen case and introduces a number of critical support features. EpiPen is an auto-injector made for the emergency treatment of life-threatening allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) caused by allergens, exercise, or unknown triggers; and for people who are at increased risk for these reactions.
Veta’s smart case incorporates electronics and sensors that integrate with a cloud-enabled mobile app infrastructure to ensure peace of mind for EpiPen users, their families, and their extended support network. The product makes it easy to easily locate a misplaced EpiPen, receive out-of-proximity alerts when the user is separated from his or her EpiPen, integrates sensors to help monitor temperature shifts that could affect integrity of epinephrine, provides immediate emergency notifications to those in the user’s support networks as well as verbal alerts, and much more.
The Veta smart case will be available in the fall of this year, and is now up for pre-order for $59. The accompanying app will work with iOS and Android devices.
