Anaphylaxis is the most severe form of allergic reaction and is potentially life threatening. Once shock has begun a dose of adrenaline must be administered immediately and emergency services contacted.
Fatalities more often occur away from home and are associated with either not administering, or a delay in the administering of adrenaline; children are at a major risk due to this.
My proposal is to create a product for children that monitors and automatically administers adrenalin whilst simultaneously contacting emergency services.
Discovering how to administer adrenaline without puncturing skin was a key challenge to overcome.
