Our Story

Hi, I’m Sandy, the inventor of the MedShell. I have a child with a serious allergy – and, if you do too, then you know how important it is to have an EpiPen® Auto-Injector. If you have read the safety instructions on EpiPen® Auto-Injector’s packaging, then you know it has to stay at about room temperature.** Unfortunately, that means some people leave their EpiPen® Auto-Injectors at home when they go to the beach, camping, or anywhere outdoors.

EpiPen® Auto-Injectors can’t save a life when they are left at home, and, if you’re like me, you can’t take that chance with your child.

After my son almost died from a severe allergic reaction, we made it a point to always have an EpiPen® Auto-Injector nearby – but this meant that a lot of our favorite outdoor activities were out of the question. That’s not the kind of life I wanted for him, which is why we created MedShell.

Over the last few years, I’ve been developing MedShell with my husband, Eric. Luckily, Eric is a Stanford-educated engineer who has invented many products (some of which you might have used before). But enough about him.

Together, we committed to create a product that will protect EpiPen® Auto-Injectors from hot and cold temperatures. We are driven by the goal of saving lives by enabling people to take their EpiPen® Auto-Injectors wherever they go, even if it’s hot or cold outside. After three years of diligent work, we have patented the invention, have successfully tested prototypes, and are on the brink of starting mass production. Now, we need your help to collect enough pre-orders to make mass production possible.

Thanks in advance,

Sandy Wengreen, Inventor of MedShell

What's Next

After first building an MedShell prototype to help our son, the process of bringing MedShell to market to help other people is nearly complete. Custom manufacturing equipment is the last thing we need to start mass production. We recently launched an Indiegogo campaign to collect enough pre-orders to fund the purchase of this equipment.

Bringing MedShell to market will save lives by enabling people to safely take their EpiPen® Auto-Injectors wherever they go. With MedShell, people won’t have to risk going outside without their EpiPen® Auto-Injector or feel like they need to stay close to home (to be near a room-temperature EpiPen® Auto-Injector).

Please join us on this mission. Together, we can make a difference.
