There’s nothing worse than worrying about whether or not your insulin is at a safe temperature. While I worry about my insulin overheating in the summer sun, I also worry about it overheating in winter when I’m moving from the freezing Cape Town winter days into toasty heated rooms. And don’t get me started on travelling – between the car, the airport, the plane and the arrival at the other side, my insulin can move through all four seasons in one day…
Enter FRíO: the world’s first patented insulin cooling wallet. I’ve been using FRíO wallets for years and I love them. You simply soak the inner pocket in cold water till the specially-developed crystals expand, then pop it into the outer pocket and store your insulin at a constant temperature of 18 to 26°C for up to 45 hours. You can reactivate the wallet repeatedly to provide continuous periods of safe medication storage.
But what about when your insulin is at home in the fridge? MedAngel ONE is a wireless smart sensor and mobile app for both iOS and Android that helps you store your medications at the right temperature. Simply pop the waterproof sensor into your fridge (or on your insulin when you’re out and about) and the app alerts you when your insulin is above or below the recommended temperature.
