Crystal Dallner of the Comox Valley has invented a new life-saving product.
The invention, a Necklace Pill Holder, helps ladies who have trouble remembering to take their pill medication.
The necklace acts as a pill reminder as it is visible when worn throughout the day. It also offers peace of mind to those who need to carry important pills and need quick access to them in a case of an emergency.
Holding up to eight large and 25 small tablets, the pills can all be stored discreetly inside the lightweight aluminum canister. The canister attaches to a beautiful handmade cultured freshwater pearl necklace.
Four colours and styles of interchangeable pearl necklaces are available to use with the Necklace Pill Holder, allowing you to change up your look or match to your outfits.
Crystal’s idea for the Necklace Pill Holder came about when she saw her grandmother had a life-saving pill taped to her forearm so she could see the pill and be reminded to take it.
The problem was that the tape was not sticking well to her arm and Crystal became increasingly worried that the pill would fall onto the floor without her grandmother knowing. Plus, if it did fall onto the floor, her two-year-old daughter could find it and swallow the pill before anyone knew it had fallen off.
Drawing upon her previous experience as a pharmacy technician, Crystal knew there had to be a more safe and stylish way to transport medication; and thus her company GOmedi wear was born.
GOmedi wear’s other product called ValleyTREK is a sleek and waterproof canister that comes with a colour carabineer attached to it that is ideal for holding headache and allergy medication, vitamins and breath mints. Outdoor enthusiasts and avid travellers can clip the carabineer onto a backpack, belt loop or purse and take it hiking, biking, running or fishing. Visit: www.GOmediwear.com for more information.
