Never miss another interview! Join Devin here: Type 1 Diabetics, those who typically contract the disease as children and not as a result of a lack of diet or exercise, are entirely dependent upon insulin. Today’s insulin delivery and blood glucose monitoring use devices--insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors--that must be connected to them all the time. Finding a comfortable, invisible, convenient place to hold those devices is a relatively new challenge that Pocket Innerwear is helping to solve. Interview with Laurel Bloomfield, the Co-Founder VP of Pocket Innerwear. The following is the pre-interview with Laurel Bloomfield. Be sure to watch the recorded interview above. What is the problem you solve and how do you solve it? We strive to make life with Diabetes easier. While insulin pump therapy provides greater diabetes control, it also causes complications and questions. Where do I put this thing? Can I wear my regular clothes? What if I drop it? What if I pull out my site too early? Can I run, jump and play? What about night time? What is the PumpPocket by Pocket Innerwear? This patented design was created so people who are insulin dependent would have a clever place to put their insulin pump. There is an outlet to allow the pump's tubing to safely be fed through the back and connect to the infusion site. Your pump remains safe, secure and concealed while preventing your tubing from getting caught or tangled. All of this in discreet layering undergarments!
