MAKING THE INVISIBLE VISIBLE !
ALERZY™provides different charms, each representing a particular food allergy. With the 3D reproduction of the allergen, ALERZY™ charms allow for a clear identification of the potential danger so that the message is understood by the greatest number of people, regardless of their age or language. By making the invisible visible, ALERZY™ charms reduce the risk of serious food allergic reactions.
THE BEGGININGS ALERZY™
The story of ALERZY™ charms began with a good idea but, above all, with the desire to help out a child with specific needs. His mother was very worried about school activities because her son was unable to indicate the potential danger of his food allergies. My goal was to find a way to make visible the invisible and provide some peace of mind to the family. It is therefore on mutual aid foundations that ALERZY™ was born.
FOOD ALLERGY CHARMS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE:
Increasingly, consumers are looking for personalized products that meet their precise needs. ALERZY™ products indicate everyone’s specific allergies. Thanks to the all-purpose hook, small enough to attach in a visible location, ALERZY™ charms can be clipped onto the lunchbox, snack bag, backpack, or even a wallet to indicate visually the food allergy witch could cause a serious allergic reaction.
ALERZY™ charms allow children who already face heavy restrains in the management of their everyday life, to reduce the risk of severe allergic food reactions.
Thanks to the 3D reproduction of the allergen, ALERZT™ charms allow for a clear identification of the danger. Thus, unlike the products currently available on the market (ex.: bracelets with engraved plates) even children can recognize the food to be avoided even if they do not yet know how to read.
The visual aspect of ALERZY™ charms provides information on the risks of serious allergic reactions, such as anaphylactic shock, to all individuals who interact with the allergic person. It acts as an added precaution, a constant reminder of danger, especially around the handling of meals at school or daycare.
EDUCATING FRIENDS, CLASSMATES AND RELATIVES
Because the child will be surrounded by friends and classmates, it is vital to inform them in order to help them better understand the risks and teach them how to recognize the signs of an allergic reaction. Thanks to their playful aspect, ALERZY™ charms attract attention and open the door to discussions that raise awareness among friends and classmates about the dangers of food allergies. Encouraging discussion among children allows the allergic child to respond to questions; it is an effective way to empower the child to deal with his allergy.
SAFETY ON FIELD TRIPS
ALERZY™ charms provide additional reassurance to parents of children with specific needs. For example, the charms can be clipped onto the allergic child’s coat or jacket during field trips.
