Reusable epinephrine auto injector for allergic patients

Epilink is a reusable auto-injector, used to inject adrenaline shots in the case of a severe allergic reaction or anaphylaxis. The device streamlines the injection process to encourage both self-use and simpler emergency injection by others. The injector has a simple and intuitive form, with graphics that guide users through the process via an e-ink screen. A changeable cartridge system increases the product’s lifecycle, while the accompanying Epilink app warns users of their medicine’s expiration dates. Epilink also provides a wall-mounted cabinet, enabling placement in public places such as restaurants and city centres for emergency situations. Epilink enables a more convenient and effective response to potentially life-threatening allergic reactions.
