Our Pocket Hero

Pocket Hero offers the production and adaptation of special clothing for children who must carry medical devices, according to their needs. The clothing will help children to better integrate into society, enhance freedom of movement, and safe carrying of devices.

Problem

The most effective way to manage this type of illness is by wearing an insulin pump which is inserted in children's bodies all the time. The free movement becomes limited, devices are seen and raise questions from peers, these children have limited leisure opportunities and, what is most important, the device is vulnerable, which causes serious health risks.
By seeing all these problems in my close environment, I came up with the idea to create garments that are specially designed for children who have 1 type of diabetes.

Solution

Our Pocket Hero creates clothing that ensures the safe carrying of the insulin pump and gives more freedom to move. What is most important, with the help of special pockets the device is safe and not visible and this makes it easier for children to integrate into society and live a life of better quality.
