AdrenaCard, an Epinephrine Autoinjector The Size of a Credit Card

Epinephrine Autoinjector

Epinephrine AutoinjectorEpiPens save lives in cases of anaphylactic shock by letting patients with severe allergies deliver epinephrine quickly and easily. Yet, a lot of people don’t carry them because they’re the size of highlighters and are easy to ignore or forget about. The AdrenaCard is a new easy to carry device from a startup company of the same name based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The new autoinjector is similar in size to a credit card and will fit neatly even in many wallets. Simply remove the protective cover, pull the safety tab, and push against a leg muscle to deliver the epinephrine injection. It’s essentially the same as an EpiPen in terms of functionality, but with a form factor that may help a lot more people keep the life saving medication wherever they go.
