Technology, Allergy & the EpiPen App

Imagine one day you're walking down the street when you suddenly breathed in some peanut-dust or got stung by a bee. You are about to go into a full-blown anaphylactic attack. And you don't have your EpiPen with you.

What's even worse, the ambulance can't reach you in time.

Researchers in a university in Israel have developed an app called EpiMada where people who are near you who carry an EpiPen can be notified via the app. They could administer epinephrine using their personal EpiPen to save you while help is on the way.
