This handy little item is new from the folk
at Frio. Small enough to get you through
a few days or maybe a week or two,
depending on your usage, it's ideal for
holidays and travelling and is designed for
the safe disposal of insulin pen needles.
The mini sharps bin is small enough
to fit in a pocket or handbag and has
a hole that you put the needle in while
still attached to the pen, you twist it off,
and the needle drops into the bin, so no
handling needed. The mini sharps bin can
be locked before being disposed of safely.
£7.99 for a pack of three.
If you wanted an added bit of peace
of mind when carrying a vial of insulin
with you, try this little security blanket
which can help protect against possible
breakage. Insulin vial protector available
in six colours for £6.99 each.
QR Medical ID Products include a choice
of ideas for keeping medical information
about your person in a handy way for
quick access for yourself or others. The
company's best seller is the QR Medical
Keyring which can alert passers-by, first
aiders, first responders and paramedics to
critical, potentially life-saving information
about somebody with a pre-existing
medical condition, e.g. diabetes. This
means that they can be treated quickly,
appropriately and allow their next of kin to
be alerted too.
The products rely on secure QR
technology that securely stores online.
This can be updated within seconds and
accessed by any smart device with a QR
reader. There are up to two ICE (in case
of emergency) contacts listed on one side
of the keyring. There is also an instruction
to call 999 as well as a prominent QR
code. Scanning this will allow the person
on scene to see information (as much or
as little as the customer desires) such
as: medical condition(s); medication;
allergies; NHS Number how to treat in an
emergency, and how not to treat in an
emergency. From £5.95.
