However, the opportunity of converting that habit of wearing around the wrist and utilizing that real estate to actually save lives with precise timely action, has perhaps been an area not ventured into as much.

Allergic reactions are a very common issue faced by millions around the world. And, in severe cases, if not treated instantly, can even be life threatening. People suffering from severe allergic reactions have the option of carrying an epinephrine shot which can provide immediate results.
Here’s a ‘syringe’ watch designed by a team of students.
Epipens can be carried either in bags or pockets, but quite often may not be accessible or people just forget carrying them. The students at Rice University have come up with a practical approach and called it the EpiWear.
Epiwear is equipped with a syringe, needle and a small dosage of epinephrine. In cases of emergency or need, the shot can be easily activated and delivered, saving precious moments of anxiety and severe allergic reaction.
