Why Did It Take So Long This may be your first thought, 2015?! What the heck people? I can tell you from personally meeting the team of Aterica Digital Health in my opinion, they are a rare breed of people who actually believe in perfecting a product for the good of the people. They care about making sure their consumers are as safe as possible and they wanted this to be a product that would have everything covered, leaving very little room for error. Less chances for error means less chances of a life being threatened by food allergies or an allergic reaction. Less of a chance for another unnecessary death due to food allergies. More importantly, more of a chance for us to become educated about what is needed to stay within that margin of close to zero error.
Explain This To Me I am a self-professed tech-challenged person. I am also very visual and I thought it may help to show you first what happens when your epinephrine is removed from the Veta Smart Case. This is one of two things that happens IF someone is having a reaction and needs to remove the auto injectors, if a teacher is opening the case or even as a heads up if someone (such as a small child) is opening the case when they should not -
The second part is where the app comes in. A simple download of the Veta app and the cases are connected via Bluetooth to keep everything in check. But it's NOT just to alert someone that the case is being opened. As I stated above, Aterica Digital Health wanted to cover any type of situation that might happen so that an immediate answer could be given as to also prevent panic over situations that may not need extreme panic.....I think we can all agree that there is more than enough of that so less is wonderful. All you need to do is look for this and proceed with the download.
Remember, I am challenged so I was a bit hesitant...seriously, opening the Veta Smart Case box as if I would break something or install it and it would start spitting out things that I couldn't understand. Not the case at all! You see, when you open the box there are several things inside. Not only is everything secured with easy-to-open plastic (that you can recycle, extra bonus in my book) and no scissors needed (so also no cuts, another bonus) but there is a Getting Started booklet included. It goes step by step so app and case setup are super easy. Your box even includes the batteries that you will need to get everything started (yes, they literally thought of everything).
What's in the Box One Veta Smart Case box includes 2 smart cases (because, as everyone knows, you should always carry two), instructions for getting started, 2 sets of tops (different colors in case you want to differentiate your auto injectors such as yellow for adult dosage and green for children's dosage), 2 silicone bands to hold secure two cases together, stickers to label each case (Mom, Dad, Suzy and Steve), a booklet of The Fine Print (care of cases, etc.) and even a card that gives you all of their contact information in the event that you are not happy with the product OR if you are happy, you know it and you want to clap your hands (joking but true).
What About the App Once it's installed, you can set up a bunch of different options. You first receive an email to verify the account then you can update the app with all of these functions:
- You can set up a profile for everyone's smart case. This includes notifying you when the case is not in range, if the temperature is too hot or too cold, if the battery is still functioning and when the epinephrine in each case expires.
- There is an assist option that can call the person the Veta Smart Case is labeled for and there is even a location device on it.
- A support circle can be set up. This means that mom, dad or whoever else you choose will be get notifications as well.
- Not sure how to use an auto injector? There is even a Resources option that explains visually and verbally how to administer it!
