Wrist-Worn EpiWear Stops Allergic Reactions

Wrist-Worn EpiWear Stops Allergic Reactions
The innovative EpiWear wearable epinephrine delivery device offers a much quicker response time than the traditional EpiPen.

The EpiWear was created by a team from Rice University, and was inspired by one of the student researchers’ own experience with peanut allergies. Designed to offer a less obtrusive and more conventional alternative to the EpiPen, the wrist-worn EpiWear is equipped with a spring-activated injector that will deliver a dose of 0.3 milliliters of epinephrine into the body.

The team is streamlining the working prototype, and hope the smaller, handier design will ensure more people keep their life-saving medications nearby.
